Regents v The Pumas

Thursday 28 June 2012, Victoria Park

Regents won by 5 wickets

Regents lost the toss and were put into field

The Pumas: 127 for 6 in 16 overs
Gearing - 45
Ed - 15
Anand - 13
Boulles - 11
Salmon Jr - 4-26-4 Walsh - 3-8-1

Regents: 132 for 2 in 15.1 overs
Ormsby - 46
Mortimer - 44*
Ed - 4-15-1 Gearing - 4-28-1

Fairly late in starting, the weather was clear enough for both teams to get their 16 overs in. Pumas batted first, and were bogged down somewhat by tight bowling from Walsh and Dinesen, with Walsh bowling Anand just as he was starting to get his eye in.

Salmon Jr came on first change, and was only denied a hattrick by the narrowest of margins. After 12 overs, Pumas had managed 70, and were 4 wickets down - a fairly precarious position.

However, Gearing started to play some thunderous strokes, and even a spread field couldn't stop the boundaries coming thick and fast, only to be denied his half century by the return of Salmon Jr, a ball that bounced a bit more than expected, and an excellent catch from Campbell, who was solid throughout the innings.

Debutant faced debutant, as Ormsby took most of the strike, and Edd bowled excellently for the Pumas. Mortimer and Ormsby got through the initial burst, and set up a good platform.

Ormsby departed to an excellent catch from the 'keeper, and Walsh hit quick runs before being bowled by the returning Ed(who can judged himself unlucky not to have taken more than just the solitary wicket).

Campbell steadied any nerves, looking very comfortable, and Mortimer hit the winning runs through point to finish what had been an excellent and close game, played in the great spirits.

Not too sure about the one drunk-woman-on-a-bike pitch invasion, but luckily the Regents' scorer was on hand to chase her off, bat in hand.
