Vets break the U21 run
Date of Event : Mon Jan 28, 2019 10:45PM

Age triumphed over beauty as the MCA Over-40s broke the winning streak of the Under-21s to take out the annual Australia Day match by 38 runs.

 

On a slightly two-paced FP1 pitch, the Vets knocked up 153, a testing total with the slow outfield. Hard-hitting Burnley duo Mark Irving (33) and Rob Passante (27) laid the basis for a solid score after Raj Kumar got the side away with a quickfire 16. Glenn Cartledge (17), Barney Phillips (14) and Riyaz Yoosuf (12) revived the innings after ESO swing bowler Michael Whelan ran through the middle order to reduce the Vets from 2-70 to 6-108. 

 

Tight opening spells from Cartledge and Yoosuf put the Under-21s under pressure, and when Phillips removed clubmate Ross to a diving slips catch by Clayton, the U21s were in trouble at 4-40 in the sixteenth over. Pirozek and Sutherland revived the innings, and at 4-70 after the 23rd, they were back on track. Leg-spinner Steve Rando put the brakes back on with a superb spell of 3-17 from 8 overs, and after Pirozek holed out in the deep to a fine running catch by Irving, Sutherland was left high and dry on 28 as wickets fell steadily around him.
