1st XI7/162 (28.3) – 6/161 (30) vs St Augustine’s

When we boarded the bus on Saturday morning, to all intents and purposes, it looked likely that we would be just going through the motions, spending some time bonding on the highway and potentially having a look at the grounds of Sydney University before returning home. The forecast was poor and the conditions were already soggy when we arrived at the St Andrew’s Cathedral Oval but the covers were on and the outfield was trimmed short, so there was still an outside chance of some play even if a full game seemed unlikely. Some excellent work from the ground staff (coaches and students included) and a brief few hours of sunshine allowed for a start of play at 12:15pm and both teams agreed to a 30 overs per side match.

Harry Mooney lost the toss and St Augustine’s decided to bat first for the second time against us this year. Before play got under way, we also had the opportunity to welcome a debutant to the First XI side. Charlie Truman (Year 7) got the call up during the week and after a few words from Harry Mooney, Hugh White presented Charlie with a baggy blue and maroon. It was great that Charlie’s dad, Matthew, could also be in attendance.

The Augustine’s team started with some up-tempo batting and fully conscious of the limited overs, they ran hard between the wickets and pushed the Chev boys to work hard in the field, particularly when patrolling the short square boundaries.

It was Charlie Truman (1/27), bowling first change, who made the initial breakthrough as George L took a good outfield catch and the score was 1/56 at this point. Good captaincy from Harry M and excellent support from the bowlers meant that we owned the middle overs and the St Augustine’s batters struggled to push the score forward.

Harry M (1/17) and Ed K (1/17) bowled tight and full making sure the opposition had to target the longer straighter boundaries. Harry L also executed a brilliant direct hit run out from the deep to really ram home the advantage. However, a quality innings from the St Augustine’s opening batsman (86) meant that they could go hard for the last 10 overs and they ended up with 6/161 at the innings break. Hugh W finished with the best figures (2/18) and a wicket off the last ball of the innings, with assistance from another good piece of fielding by Harry L. A run rate of 5.36 was imposing but the team took a lot of confidence in the fact that they only allowed 12 boundaries in the whole innings.

In reply, 5 wides from the first ball of the innings got us off to the perfect start and from there Josh M (34 from 46 balls) and Rohan D (43 from 35 balls) took control. The score rocketed to 68 in the 10th over before Josh was dismissed, but we were already ahead in the required run rate and the chase now looked very possible, especially given the drizzly conditions and the difficulty the opposition were having gripping the ball and with their ground fielding.

The middle order kept the runs ticking over and at 4/137 in the 24th over it looked like we would get there with plenty of time to spare. However, a triple wicket 25th over threw a spanner in the works and as the runs dried up the required rate got back up to 5.50 an over. Nonetheless, the Chev team has come a long way in the first half of the year and they have learnt the art of winning tight games. George L “the finisher” (28 not out from 26 balls) played a brilliant innings to steer the team over the line with 9 balls to spare. 3 from 6 going into the Christmas break!
