ND T20 Tournament @ Owen Delany Park, Taupo 15-17 December 2019
Craigs Investment Partners Bay of Plenty senior representative team, didn’t get the start that they wanted in their chase for back to back ND T20 titles at Owen Delany Park in Taupo, on the opening day of the annual tournament.
Northland won the toss and after electing to bat posted the Bay side a very big target when they reached 213/4. Batting at three, Oli White blasted a neat century of just 58 balls to dramatically accelerate the Northland run rate.
Bay of Plenty were in good shape at 100 for the loss of two wickets in the eighth over, however the removal of Stephen Crossan for 52, saw the Northland bowlers tighten the screws. Peter Drysdale showed defiance before being removed for 38. Jacob Logan worked hard on his Bay of Plenty senior men’s debut, to be rewarded with 22 runs, however the Bay side couldn’t come up with the required runs, being bowled out for 178.
Day One – 15 December
Northland 213/4 (Oli White 100; Chris Atkinson 2/37) defeated Craigs Investment Partners Bay of Plenty 178 (Stephen Crossan 52, Peter Drysdale 38, Jacob Logan 22)
