Our Digicel Barramundis suffered their biggest loss to the Northern Mavericks in Adelaide, over the weekend.
Stand in Captain, Jack Vare, opted to bat first after the toss. Assad Vala once again keeping his composure, managed to get 71 runs of 103 bowls, before being the fourth batter dismissed at 114 runs.
Mahuru Dai held the middle/lower order, with 78 runs off 107 bowls before being bowled out at 236 runs.
Former Australian cricketer, Mark Cosgrove and Joshua Hoffman, opening partnership led the Northern Mavericks to victory with 252 runs.
Our bowlers sweated out in day two, to take out the Mavericks, with Charles Amini Jr taking out two wickets, while John Boge Reva, Assad Vala, and Vani Morea grabbed a wicket each.
Coach Deepak Patel remains optimistic and said, “the Barra’s will work on their batting, bowling and fielding structures and plans set are to be executed accordingly so that they can improve the unit in future.”
