Green Shield Round 2 vs North Sydney – Tahs on top to go 2 from 2

The boys arrived at Tunks Park eager to continue their form from Round 1. The deck offered rewards for both good length bowling and patient batting. Jack won the toss for the third time this year and again we batted first.

Jack and Aiden opened the batting, with us losing Aiden (9) early to a diving catch from North Sydney’s keeper. When we lost Jack (18), we were in some trouble with us being 2-34.

This brought Olie and Isaiah to the crease, with them looking to bat time and reap the rewards of being patient on this deck. As they started to become accustom to the wicket, Oli top edged a pull shot to be caught for 19. Ned then fell soon after for 11, leaving Manly in a tough situation of 4-98.

Isaiah continued to stay out there and try and put the pressure back on North Sydney. Isaiah and Jacob dropped singles and forced mistakes in the field with their quick-fire running.

Isaiah soon edged one to be caught behind for a well-made 30. Kyle and Jacob continued pushing fielders and forcing mistakes. Jacob was bowled for a quick 17. This brought in big hitter Gabe.

Gabe ran out there and went after the bowlers from ball one. After hitting a four over midwicket on his 3rd ball, North Sydney placed as many fielders as they could on the boundary. This didn’t stop Gabe as he hit a 6 over deep mid-ons head soon after. Gabe (29) and Kyle’s (25) quick scores at the end brought the Manly boys to a total of 196.

Hayden and Gabe opened the bowling for Manly. Hayden grabbed the first wicket when the North Sydney opener pulled one straight up, leaving them 1-13. This brought North Sydney’s captain to the crease. First ball Gabe bowled a perfect out-swinger to him which caught the edge, with Aiden taking a great one handed catch to dismiss him.

The pressure from these two openers continued as they constantly bowled quality lines and lengths, leaving North Sydney 4-34 after the first spell. The next batsmen put on a 50 run partnership to attempt to put the pressure back on us, but with quality bowling from Captain Edwards the wickets started to fall. They quickly went from 4-86 to 8-97.

The Manly boys bowled them out for 133, to make our campaign 2 from 2.
