Contracted NSW Blues fast-bowler Ryan Hadley achieved his first career 10-wicket match during McDonald’s NSW Premier Cricket, round 14, day two on Saturday.
Only one more regular season round remains, a one-day game next Saturday.
The 21-year-old Hadley had figures of 2-1 at stumps for Manly-Warringah against UNSW last weekend, and took another five wickets on Saturday to finish the first innings with 7-26 from 14 overs, and help bowl UNSW out for only 88 from 44.1 overs in reply to Manly’s 8/305 (dec).
This performance was Hadley’s third First-Grade five-wicket haul. Former Australian Test and current Blues spinner Steve O’Keefe took 3/24 from 15.1 overs, in an attack that also included South African speedster Morne Morkel and Blues quick Mickey Edwards.
Manly-Warringah enforced the follow-on and knocked over UNSW for 105 from 48.1 overs, securing outright victory by an innings and 112 runs. Hadley claimed 3-18 from 10 overs, completing his 10-wicket game, while O’Keefe took 4-23 from 20 overs, for a total of seven scalps for the match.
Sydney keeper-batsman Beau McClintock scored his second First-Grade century with an unbeaten 122 from 204 balls, including seven fours and three sixes, as his side surpassed Gordon’s first innings score of 170, declaring on 8/327 after 83 overs.
The 26-year old now has a total of 759 runs for the season at an impressive average of 84.33, and has finished not out in 11 of his 20 innings.
McClintock shared a sixth-wicket stand of 92 with Ryan Felsch, who smashed 58 from just 35 balls, hitting two fours and clearing the rope six times.
The match ended with Gordon on 7/104 from 48.4 overs, with Sydney unable to secure the outright win, but claimed the first innings points, remaining third on the table.
Fast-bowler Nic Bills followed up his 3-34 during the first innings with 2-24 from 13 overs in the second innings, taking his season tally beyond 50 wickets to 51, and the first player to reach the half-century this season. It is the second time Bills has reached 50 scalps during a season.
Fast-bowling partner Alex Glendenning claimed 2-28 from 14.4 overs.
Western Suburbs fast-bowler Muhammad Irfan Jr continued his amazing season, taking 6-89 against Northern District for his third career five-wicket haul, bringing his season tally to 31 wickets from six matches at an astounding average of 12.35.
Irfan Jr’s effort was however not enough to prevent Northern District chasing down West’s total of 253 from last Saturday, with Northern District achieving a nail biting one-wicket first innings win.
Batsman Ben Davis was the star for Northern District, hitting 118 not out from 293 balls, including 11 boundaries, recording his second century of the season and the 11th of his First Grade career. Davis guided his side over the line after they were 9/246, eight runs short of victory.
Davis shared a match defining eighth-wicket partnership with tailender Tom Felton, who hit 33 from 72 balls. The stand was worth 68.
Mosman pace bowler Sam Sykes took his maiden First-Grade five-wicket haul, claiming 5-42 from 17 overs, to dismantle Sutherland for 177 inside 53 overs and take a 225-run first innings victory.
Sykes’ opening bowling partner Dean Crawford took the other five wickets, finishing on 5/87 from just under 24 overs.
Sutherland followed on and ended the match on 2/104 after 23.1 overs. Tom Doyle made 75 from 69 balls.
Randwick-Petersham backed up their demolition of Hawkesbury’s batting order last Saturday with another amazing performance with the ball, knocking Hawkesbury over for 57 from 30.3 overs, only four runs higher than their first innings total. Randy Petes taking the outright win by an innings and 124 runs, in the process securing the minor premiership in the Belvidere Cup.
Riley Ayre went wicketless in the first innings but took an amazing 4-2 from six overs during Hawkesbury’s second innings. Blues and Thunder fast-bowling allrounder Daniel Sams took 2-9 from seven overs, adding to his three wickets in the first innings.
Adam Semple backed up his 2-16 last Saturday with 1-24 from six overs during the second innings. His three wickets for the match took him to 350 First Grade wickets at an average of 22.91.
Thomas McKenzie claimed 2-5 from 2.3 overs, after taking a scalp last weekend.
Thunder fast-bowler Nathan McAndrew celebrated his 150th First-Grade game by taking two wickets in each innings for Bankstown during their outright innings and 45-run victory over Fairfield-Liverpool, taking them to fourth on the table.
Fairfield-Liverpool replied to Bankstown’s 264 from last Saturday by managing only 69 inside 34 overs, with McAndrew taking 2-12 from five overs, fast-bowling partner Liam Marshall claiming best figures of 4-8 from seven overs, and Mitch Brown and Ben Taylor grabbing a couple of scalps each.
Bankstown enforced the follow on and knocked Fairfield-Liverpool over for 150 from 61 overs, sealing the outright win. McAndrew claimed 2-19 from five overs while spinner Ben Taylor did the majority of the damage with 5-52 from 25 overs, his second career five-wicket haul for Bankstown and a total of seven wickets for the match.
St George fast-bowling allrounder Nick Stapleton took his third career five-wicket haul with 5-66 from 23 overs against Sydney University, taking him past 200 wickets to 201 at an average of 26.38.
Stapleton’s effort was not enough to prevent Sydney University reaching St George’s total of 162 from last Saturday and taking a four-wicket first innings victory. William Masojada top-scored for the Students with 38 from 108 balls.
UTS North Sydney survived 101 overs to force a nail-biting draw with Eastern Suburbs, finishing the match on 9/264, 20 runs short of Easts’ total from day one, and remaining inside the top six. Fast-bowler Henry Thornton claimed 4/61 from 31 overs for Easts.
Parramatta defeated Penrith by 56 runs after bowling them out for 237 from 70.4 overs. Jacob Workman was the key for Parramatta as he took 4-65 from 16 overs.
Campbelltown-Camden defended their total of 285 from day one by knocking Blacktown Mounties over for 207 in under 79 overs. Shivansh Pathak took best figures of 3/67 from 21 overs for the Ghosts.
