The Premier Mens team were looking in good shape at 92/2 in the 16th over batting first against East Shirley at home on Burnside 1, but that third wicket stand of 70 between Tinus Huyser and JJ Naude came to an end in the 16th over when both batsmen were dismissed and what followed can only be described as a batting collapse of Pakistani proportions as 7 wickets fell in the space of 5 overs. All credit goes to AJ How and Scott Inglis for batting 19 overs to frustrate the opposition for the last wicket.

Some very good news from the 2b side as they had a win at against CBHS and Deon Cremer clearing the rope 5 times on his way to 122 and the first century of the season for the club meaning he makes it to this seasons Honours Board   You would think that this would propel Deon into the Al Brown MVP points leaderboard, but he is just missing the key ingredient of having the scores entered in CricHQ. This type of administration oversite would never happen in the Whangaparoa Cannons Pony Club, especially when their supreme leader Chris “El Capitan” Peters scores 74 for their side proving he can take runs and wickets and moving to the top of the Al Brown MVP leaderboard! Well done CP!
