After a promising first 30 overs against Tonks, we've fallen away very swiftly. Limped to 9-276 as plenty of bats got starts and no one could kick on on my home road. Very skinny score, especially as Tonks has easily gone to 3-129 after 28. Ascott dropped Solkar early on but luckily Shorten got him for 35, but still thos extra 30 runs hurt. Can't seem to stop them from scoring is the main problem, the only thing in our favour is the RRR which is slowly growing....need some wickets and fast or they'll chase this down no problems and it'll just be a repeat of last season.
Good game Lunar. It turned out differently to last season.
The Reds made a decent score batting first even though it was lower than Lunar would have liked. We were behind the require run rate for the whole innings due to some quality bowling by the Reds. We increased the run rate in the middle of the innings and it looked like we had a chance to chase the total but The Reds bowlers took important wickets at crucial moments. Chaudry was the pick of the bowlers with 4/36. The Reds won by 26 runs.
Well played Lunar and congrats on the win.
The Reds are on top of the AUS Div.1 ladder with 4 wins from 4. They have the strongest team in the league and must surely be considered the favourites for the title. There is still a long way to go though and the division is full of quality teams.
