The third round of the Open Knockout Cricket Competition was played at Woodcroft College on Tuesday 1st March 2016. Connor Lock won his first toss and decided to bat on a good turf wicket. After Mohit Khanna was dismissed in the second over, Zack Robertson and Connor Lock took the score to 46 when Zack miscued a drive and was caught for a patient 19. Connor Lock(25) and Josh Spall(37) then built another strong partnership of 40 that took the score to 85. However a middle order collapse meant that Wirreanda finished on 7/124 after their allotted 35 overs. Jake Cuming(7 not out) and Tom Thomson(7) made small personal contributions that allowed Josh Spall to dominate the bowling.Woodcroft commenced their innings in a hurry scoring 1/45 after 10 overs and were well on track to secure a victory when Connor Lock surprisingly brought on Zack Robertson as the first change bowler. It proved to be a masterstroke as Zack slowed down the run rate and took 5/10 in his seven overs. Mohit Khanna and Andrew Cowie-Taylor both took 2 wickets each at the end of the innings. There were three very good catches taken by Jacob Clifford, Tom Thomson and Corey McGill at important times of the innings. Woodcroft were dismissed for 86. This was one of the finest performances by a Wirreanda team as they continued to persevere even though they had to come from behind on numerous occasions during the game.For match scores go to the front page of the Website and look under Results.
