Green Shield Round 3 – Manly-Warringah 45 def by Blacktown 5-46 (L Franks 3/11, A Bennett 2/7)
Manly got off to a terrific start with the ball with Franks and Bennett bowling with pace and accuracy. Both bowlers picked up early wickets with Bennett completing his spell with 2-7 off of his 5 overs and Franks 3-11 off his 6 overs. Blacktown were struggling at 5-19 and the weight of the game had started to shift in Manly’s favour. Unfortunately, Blacktown managed to pass Manly’s total 5 down in the 19th over, though Manly’s fight shown in the field and with the ball was to be commended.
