Caloundra CC witnessed yet another enthralling trophy match between HT & VOP on Tues 22nd May, with the Trundlers eventually coming out on top when reaching the required 231 from 45 overs with only an over to spare in fading light and with a large crowd in attendance (mostly touring 0.5’s).
As always, the game was played in great spirit, a testament to the long and deep friendships that now exist between the two teams with a brilliant day had by all.
Contributions were evenly spread across both team sheets, with the Trundlers’ exciting run chase kick-started by an elegant and confident #16 who had no trouble taking on the opposition’s best bowlers in reaching a rapid 30. This set HT on their way to an exciting victory with WT#10 hitting the winning runs.
Harmi Harmison #16 was deservedly awarded Man of the Match by VOP after also breaking the opening partnership with a clever one over spell of difficult to read bowling!
Wishing the Valley success and good times for the rest of their 11th tour to Australia and we look forward to returning as always to NZ in Feb 2019.
