Waikere won the toss and decided to bat first. Kaipaki fielded well but were let down by extras. Young off spinner Brae Ebb made a good debut with economical figures of 0/13 of 5 overs. A good piece of fielding by Jacob Goodwin, after the batsman was deceived by the slightly uphill Kaipaki boundary resulted in a run out. Kaipaki made it hard for themselves, losing their first wicket in the second over (golden duck), but the skipper (Aidan Mora-Teddy) Along with opener Sam Foster put on a 52 partnership to stable the ship. Kaipaki looked on track for victory until the ending of this partnership. There was a middle order collapse to bowling that was so slow we had played the shot twice before the ball even got there. A solid 32 n.o. from number 11 Jacob Goodwin was the high score for the day.
Despite the loss the team felt that a win was possible and we were above the run rate with wickets in hand after the 10th over, so we are expecting that results will improve throughout the rest of the season.
- Jacob Goodwin’s 32 came off 16 balls
- Two wickets were taken on the last two balls of Waikere’s innings
- Connor Hodgson (14) and Brae Ebb made their debuts for Kaipaki, both impressed, Connor in the field and showed promise with the bat (17), and Brae with the ball
