The day started with mixed bag of weather but it was game on come 1pm, a minutes silence in memory of Phil Hughes and with Howie Baker assuming the captaincy duties. With the toss lost with my lucky coin and asking us to bowl (which we were going to do anyway) - The opening bowling pair of Couch and Moran had the visitors on the ropes early, and seems a bout of complacency started as the top and middle order struggling with the tight bowling.
At various stages of the day – the below were the headlines for the Match Report:
1. Kaipaki start well with the Good Guys on the ropes at 62/ 6 after 17 overs
2. Kaipaki impressive as new opening bowling attack roll Good Guys for 126 all out!
3. Kaipaki tail wags in a thrilling run chase
4. Kaipaki Capitulate Against Good Guys falling 16 runs short
5. Kaipaki top 6 chances slim
While it was a good day for Bellis and the rest of the Kaipaki Wedding goers, it was a tough day in the field.
All is not lost though Kaipaki has recruited the services of Gareth Moran and Neil Armstrong – welcome to the club. Please ensure you make your way to the local op shop to get fitted out, contact Kent Currie to purchase some gear, and come 10 games you will be presented with baggy green and gold.
