Rogues come unstuck

The clash between Waipā’s more senior cricketers provided plenty of entertainment for spectators at Cambridge’s Victoria Park in the Sunday League.

Cambridge Antiques won the toss and scored 216/9 off their 40 overs with top knocks from Phil O’Connor (33) and 30s from Garth Thomas and Pete Bridgens.

For Rosetown Rogues, the ever miserly Gavin Chatfield had three wickets for eight runs while Pete Lawry captured two for 30.

In reply, the Rogues were all out for 134 with Andrew Macpherson 30 not out and TeOti Kaihe 32.

Thomas, following up on his 30 with the bat, got three wickets for three runs.

The competition is for cricketers 40 years and over and players generally retire when they reach 30 runs.
