Eves Realty Greerton won the Baywide Cup for the third time, when they defeated Element IMF Cadets in a game of attrition on Saturday 15th December 2019, where 19 wickets fell before Greerton got home to a one wicket victory.
Cadets who entered the 2018 title decider as the defending Baywide Cup champions, batted first on a wicket that looked to have plenty of assistance for the bowlers. They lost their first three wickets for 25 runs, before Bay of Plenty representative all-rounders in Sean Davey and Jono Boult came together and steadied the ship. Davey was removed for 20, with the Cadets captain continuing on before being removed with 37 runs beside his name.
It was left to the visitors lower order of Daniel Maathuis and Kamal Bains to defy the Greerton bowlers, with Cadets finally bowled out for 167, to tip the scales in favour of the home team. Greerton skipper Shane Wineti showcased his all round talents taking four wickets for just 11 runs.
Nick Hendrie and Henry Collier opened the Greerton reply and launched a solid attack, before Collier was dismissed for 21. At 100 for the loss of a solitary wicket, the hosts appeared to be cruising, before the Cadets bowlers struck back to rip out five Greerton batsmen for just a handful of runs.
Enter Tom Renouf batting at eight, as he defied the Cadets bowling storm to take his team through to a one wicket win, with an unbeaten 36 runs. Big match experience displayed by Jono Boult (4/29) and Sean Davey (3/24), almost resulted in Cadets taking out to back to back Baywide Cups.
Greerton Captain Shane Wineti said “Winning the toss and asking Cadets to bat on a green wicket was one of the keys to victory, in what turned out to be a classic final”. “At 100 for one wicket, chasing 168, we were in charge. However they came back to grab five wickets for just six runs to turn the game in their favour”.
“Jono Boult and Sean Davey are absolute class players with both bowling brilliantly to take seven wickets between them”. “Our lower order were able to grind out the last sixty odd runs to win the match” “Keeper Tom Renouf, in just his second year with the club showed maturity beyond his age and he was definitely our player of the match”.
Also on the line on the last day of cricket before the holiday break was the Bay of Plenty berth in the ND Club Championships – with the Greerton premiers taking their place with the five other Northern Districts minor association contenders early in the New Year.
Greerton took out the Baywide Cup with an unbeaten record, to follow on from a similar feat when the Pemberton Park based side achieved a similar achievement, when they annexed the Williams Cup in the second half of the 2017/18 season.
