After a win against the Swamp Rats (Green Island) at Sunnyvale today, Seniors have progressed to Round 3 of the Promo-X Knockout Trophy competition.
Batting first KCC put on 171 from 47 overs, with opener Liam “I think i’ve drunk all the piss in Dunedin Tonight” Cotton helping guide the total before being dismissed on 38 with the score at 94-3. A couple of starts from Hamish Robertson (24), and Geordie Scott (22) contributed to the total, however a healthy donation of 34 extras helped us reach 171.
In reply Adam Flegg spearheaded our bowling attack knocking the top off with 4/43 from his 10 overs, leaving the Rats 57-4 after 14 overs. A potentially dangerous partnership between Regan Cairns (37) and Bradley Scott (41) threatened to blunt the damage at the top, however Jackson Latham (3/29) provided a short stint to take 3 wickets from the middle order. With the tail exposed, it was quickly wrapped up by Ryan Whelan (2/20), and Geordie Scott (1/13) to complete a 28 run victory for KCC.
