BWU THE ONLY PREMIER TEAM TO WIN ON SATURDAY
Mid-week rain prevented all but top grade cricket last weekend. Even then, only one result was squeezed in between downpours on Saturday. Luckily, it involved our Premiers and they were on the right side of the ledger at the end. Dismissing Riccarton for 110 (Matt Farrant and Sam Noster three wickets each), BWU was 60/4 when rain stopped play. This was enough to give them a win by six runs on calculated run rate, and jump them to an early, albeit slight, leaderboard lead after two rounds of the Premier one day competition.

DID YOU KNOW? – SACHIN TENDULKAR AND NZ
Sachin Tendulkar is in the news this week because he is retiring soon after his 200th test match. Unbelievably, he first played a test against New Zealand in February 1990. It was his fifth test and it was here is Christchurch. Have a look here at the team of long-retired Kiwis he opposed. What a strong New Zealand team too, and it had a comfortable victory, with Tendulkar scoring a duck in the first innings.
Have a great cricketing weekend.
