There have been few better days for Bay of Plenty age-group cricket, than day four of the 2018 ND Senior Secondary tournament, where the two Bay sides simply blasted their opponents out of the respective encounters.
The Coastland opening pair of Taylor Bettlehiem and Jacob Logan took control of the championship semi-final against Counties Manukau, from the opening ball of the game. When Jacob was dismissed in the 39th over with 86 runs in the scorebook, the Bay side were 198/1. Taylor continued on the momentum to post a magnificent 131, with Coastlands in total control at 266 for three, with just 14 balls remaining.
Counties Manukau faced a huge target, after Coastland’s ended their innings at 299 for the loss of four wickets and were never really in the hunt for victory. They were removed for 181with ten overs remaining to give the Bay side a big 118 run win. Iman Singh grabbed three wickets for 35 runs with Jacob Logan and Finn Dempsey taking two bowling scalps apiece.
Bay of Plenty Lakeland were no less impressive than there Coastland counterparts, with a huge 198 run victory against Poverty Bay, in their Plate semi-final. Batting first, the Lakeland team overwhelmed the opposition bowlers to post 266/6. The top four of Cameron Ingram (77) Bradley Wiggins (45) Louie Love-Parata (57) and Chris Tupea (38) anchored their sides big score.
A magnificent bowling performance from Tommaso Pini, wrecked the Poverty Bay reply, as they were bundled out for 68. Tommaso took six wickets at a cost of only 11 runs as Poverty Bay failed to cope with the magic weaved by the Lakeland bowler. Another outstanding performance, was put on by keeper Cameron Ingram, who took six catches behind the stumps including four off Tommaso’s bowling and a caught and bowled.
Day Five is Finals playoff day, with Bay of Plenty Coastland meeting Hamilton in the ND Championship title decider and Bay of Plenty Lakeland going head to head in the Plate Final with Waikato Valley.
