Wirreanda travelled to Cabra College for their round four clash on Tuesday 15th March. There was no toss as Wirreanda wanted to field and Cabra were happy to bat.Jake Cuming twice broke through early in the innings to see Cabra on 2/39. Thereafter there were several solid partnerships from the Cabra batsmen who took the score to 4/101 after 23 overs. Andrew Cowie-Taylor once again came on to break an important partnership with Connor Lock taking a difficult catch at short cover. However the best bowling figures came from Mohit Khanna who took 3/7 from his three overs. Connor Lock took 2/17 and a catch, Josh Spall finished on 2-29 and Andrew Cowie-Taylor had 1/9 from his three overs. Cabra were all out for a respectable 144 from 30 overs.With Wirreanda needing to score at five runs an over, the innings started slowly with the score reaching 13 after five overs before Zach Robertson was caught for 7. Connor Lock attempted to hit a short ball to square leg, but only ended up hitting it straight up in the air to be caught in the infield for naught. Josh Spall was unfortunately run out in a close contest for 17 and Mohit Khanna also kept some respectability in the innings by finishing on 17. Andrew Cowie-Taylor made a three ball duck, while Nick Robertson scored his first two runs of the 2016 campaign. Tom Thomson swung his bat for a quick-fire 7, Jacob Clifford(0) did not trouble the scorers, Corey McGill(4) hit a magnificent four that nearly cleared the boundary for six. The reliable Jake Cuming was last out for a solid 9 and Brody Thomson remained 0 not out without facing a ball. The Wirreanda score was 76 after 27.5 overs.Wirreanda were outplayed in this game, but the team is to be congratulated on playing three very good games to reach the last four in the competition. Connor Lock led the side in a competent and positive manner and was a good mentor to the other players.
