Cricket: Armadale faces tough task to chase down CBC’s total

CBC had a field day with the bat in the opening day of its round 5 South Metropolitan Cricket Association match against Armadale.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, CBC quickly set to work building a strong total.

Opener Andrew Galbraith set the tone from the first ball, spreading his runs to all corners of the park as he hit his way to an innings-high 91.

David Bandy also excelled with the bat, knocking 83, as the pair helped CBC to 6-279 at stumps.

Armadale’s bowlers ran in hard but struggled to take wickets, Chad Forsyth and Damian Carroll having the most luck with two apiece.

The match at Gwynne Park will continue from 1pm November 25.

Armadale’s third grade had a similar day against CBC, who also fired with the bat to make 5-273.

Alex Cumming was the pick of the bowlers and the only multiple wicket taker as he took 2-59 off 18 overs.

Sixth grade is in a fair position in its clash against Piara Waters despite a topsy-turvy day.

Armadale slumped to 2-18 before Mick Wise made a handy 18, but a flurry of wickets saw Armadale crumble to 5-68.

Corey Mullane (23) and Antony Fedele (20) then steadied before another collapse saw Armadale dismissed for 134.

Things looked dire as Piara Waters cruised to 1-48 before four wickets fell for no runs.

Liam Picket (2-3) and Vince Tilbrook (2-21) were the destroyers as Piara Waters went to stumps at 5-57.

One Day As had a solid win against Safety Bay after making 190 batting first.

Muhammad Younas batted well at the top for a fine 59 and Oswin D’Sylva chipped in with 26, but at 5-120 things looked shaky before Asim Mehmood (33) and Raebern D’Sylva (18) steadied the ship.

In reply Safety Bay looked great at 1-66, but three quick wickets saw them stumble to 4-68 after Kim Hunt took 2-35.

At 5-90 it was game on again until James Gardner ran through the tail to snare 4-10 off five overs to see them all out for 137.

One Day Cs accounted for Kardinya Lakes who batted first and made 9-101.

Sathish Manogaran was the star, taking 4-14, while Senthilkumar Kamalakannan snared 3-21.

In reply Armadale got off to a great start with 55 for the first wicket thanks largely to Senthilkumar Kamalakannan who made 28.

No one else passed 16 but Armadale comfortably got home, passing the score before making 128.

One Day Es took on Kenwick, who batted first and were in deep trouble early at 3-14 thanks largely to Warren Francis who spun a web early to snare 2-20.

Kenwick got back on track and posted a solid 9-173 with six other bowlers all taking a wicket each in an even team effort.

In reply Rhett Jones again went berserk as he and his dad man Steve Jones (25) put on 117 at the top of the order.

Rhett Jones was then out for a sublime 83 which included seven maximums.

Four quick wickets saw Armadale slump to 4-134 and put a few nerves through the squad.

They were put to bed quick smart as Gene Aldridge (67, which included 56 runs in boundaries) and Pete Smith (61) flayed them everywhere to enable a total of 6-269.

One Day Fs lost a thriller against Kwinana after making 9-174 batting first.

Rob Goscombe played the anchor role perfectly as wickets tumbled everywhere.

He stood firm through six wickets as Armadale slumped to 6-72, before Michael Lansdowne (45 not out) perked up to allow a competitive total.

In reply Kwinana crept towards the target, regularly losing wickets thanks to a great team bowling effort as six bowlers took a wicket each.

Unfortunately they passed the total at the death to finish on 6-180.
