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.
