On Saturday Canowindra Tyre Service team travelled to Grenfell to take on Grenfell Bowling Club. We won the toss and chose to field first. After some tight bowling early on from Beau, Riley, Marcus, Jack and Mitch C, their batsman started to find the boundary and built a sizable total of 122 off 20 overs.
During the change of innings, we formulated our approach to batting and improved on last week. All agreed that keeping our wickets intact was paramount. With this mindset each member of the team carved out a fine innings with all batsman retiring after their allotted number of balls to face, except one unfortunate runout. The Grenfell bowling attack was the best we have faced so far. Jack and Riley both dispatched the loose ball to top the runs. We finished our 20 overs at 1/67.
Even though Grenfell’s total proved a big ask to chase down the whole team was extremely proud of their effort and determination with the bat and gained praise from the opposition coach. Jack Smyth was awarded the Canowindra Services Club encouragement award for some fine glove work as keeper and with the bat. The Canowindra Tyre Service Player of the Week went to Riley Bollinger, great to have him back.
