Waaia faces a tricky chase

December 15, 2017

Waaia will head into day two filled with plenty of confidence, needing only 143 to beat Murray Valley Cricket Association’s premier side.

Nathalia opened the batting last week and was dismissed for 163 off 61 overs and tomorrow, Mitch Cleeland (7) and Tom Williams (0) will lead the Bombers out at 4-20 off 18 overs.

The hosts will need Luke Carter to continue to deliver on day two, having already snared three wickets, but like any match, the first hour will set the tone for how the result will work out.

A win for Nathalia could help the league leader separate itself from Barooga, while Waaia will be hoping the result falls in its favour as it pushes for a top four place.

Katamatite will be aiming to defend its 158-run lead as it aims to secure its fourth win of the campaign.

The Tigers were led last week by Shannon Pool’s impressive 89 against Cobram, but six other batsmen failed to reach double figures.

The chasing side sits at 1-31 heading into day two, with Tyron Baden dismissed on 31 in the last over of play.

Fellow opening batsmen Sam Kinson and Lachlan Hyde will return to the crease after six overs were batted on day one.

Deniliquin Rhinos will be aiming to complete an outright victory against competition cellar dweller Finley after already surpassing the 56-run first innings total.

The Rhinos batted 30 overs last week before declaring at 5-133, while the Cats sit at 3-47.

An outright victory could lift the Rhinos to second on the table.

Meanwhile, Riley Gow has already led Barooga to a comfortable victory against Cobram-Yarroweyah United.

United won the toss and elected to bat first before being bowled out for 92 as Riyaad Henry took 4-25 off nine overs.

However, Gow has already single-handedly beaten United as he heads into day two 110 not out off 138 balls.
