Colts tear through Cavs

The New England Club Colts’ bowlers were far too good for their Cavaliers opponents in Saturday’s round three clash. 

The Cavaliers stepped out to bat first and were dealt an early blow when Jake Baker landed the first wicket of opener of Ash Connors. 

Baker then picked up fellow opener Trevor Moir for eight and the wickets kept tumbling for the Cavaliers. 

Singh Lakhvinder added some stability in the middle order to top score with 19 but it wasn’t enough as his side finished all out for 64 after 21 overs. 

Bowling: Jake Baker 3-6 from four overs; Matt Campion 2-9 from three overs; Tom Chard 2-7 from four overs; Brendon Smith 2-6 from three overs. 

The Colts stepped up to the crease and experienced an early scare as Dean Swaffer was dismissed in the second over. 

Fellow opener Tom Chard finished on 17. 

Up stepped Ritesh Shekhawart who hit four boundaries on his way to 39 not out. 

He was joined at the crease by Matt Campion who finished the innings with 11 not out. 

In round four the Colts will play Kings Gym who are coming off a narrow loss to reigning premiers Emmaville. 

The task for the Cavaliers doesn’t get any easier with the team facing Emmaville on their home turf.
