Fifths Sodden But Triumphant
Date of Event Macquarie University Cricket Club: Mon Feb 15, 2021 6:40PM

Despite the reservations of the West Ryde Captain, and after much sweeping of the pitch, play got underway at 2.07p.m. leaving 51 overs in the day's play for MUCC to secure a win. A partnership of 47 between Lee and Watson stalled our push for victory, but a great ball by Saurav ended this stumbling block when he clean bowled Lee with one that skidded through. A well judged catch by Shashwat had the dangerous Napper out for a duck, and when Jacques bowled two more batsmen he quickly had 3 for 4 off 4.  Wickets continued to fall and after 42 overs West Ryde were out for 96. Best of the bowlers were Jacques with 3 for 28 off 10 and Sandip with 3 for 18 off 9. With 16 overs to go Macquarie enforced the follow on to have West Ryde 2 for 26 when stumps were called.
