GKCC unable to capitalise on Oscar's fine innings.
Will won the toss and chose to bat first and he opened with himself and Oscar but soon found himself back in the pavilion after drilling a ball back hard to the bowler Ed Batchelor who took a good reaction catch. Oscar proceeded to bat well and sensibly, hitting three fours before retiring on 31.
However when the visitors brought on the slow spin bowler our batters eyes lit up and both Zac and Dylan were out trying to hit the ball to "cow" corner. I think they must have been watching too much IPL cricket. After reaching 46 for 2 i n the 9th over GK could only muster 85 for 8 in the 20 overs. GK started well with Dylan and Tristan bowling very tidily in the first 3 overs with Tristan taking a wicket with Zac taking a good catch at mid wicket. Oscar bowled his 2 overs accurately, however on such a good batting track it is important to bowl a good line and length and our bowlers tended to bowl a little too short and Ed Batchelor took advantage scoring 29 not out. Their number 3 bat was caught off Zac's bowling with the score on 61 and our visitors reached the target without further loss in the 13th over. Positives from this game was the batting of Oscar, the bowling of Dylan and the fact that we took 2 good catches. We must look to improve our game awareness as we face Ballinger Waggoners again in the cup on May 15th.
