The Willows vs
King's High School (Dunedin) 1st XI


Report by John Mitchell

Match Report – The Willows v Kings HS (Dunedin)

Sunday 11th October 2020, Report by Phil Harris (Captain)

As in previous seasons I had the privilege of leading the Willows team for the first Boys School game of season 27 for the Willows CC.

The Kings HS team have enjoyed considerable success against us in recent years so I was determined we would field a very strong side with plenty of youth and both batting and bowling depth, to turn the tide and gain a much needed win against a school the produces quality sides year in year out.

On what started as a pleasant and windless day, having won the toss, Willows batted first. Openers Fraser Buckley and Kyle Burns got us off to a solid start each scoring in the mid 20’s , with both openers gone we had a mini collapse until Chris Mugford restored our fortunes with a very solid 35, the top score for us, and he was supported well by both Charlie Finnie and Andrew Nuttall as the score neared 170 odd.

However after Andrew was dismissed we failed to bat out our overs and were 187 all out in over 46. Obviously it is always disappointing not to bat out the 50 overs and 187 felt 30 to 40 runs shy of a really competitive total.

Still the old cliché applied, we had the runs on the board and they had to get them. We had some good inside knowledge on their team from both Kyle Burns and Klye Hastie, 2 Kings HS old boys playing for us, and it was obvious defending that score we would need to make early inroads to their top 4.

Our opening bowlers Nawid and Kyle Hastie both bowled very tidy opening spells beating the bat outside off repeatedly without any success. However changes at both ends resulted in immediate wickets with Micah Campbell cleaning bowling their opener then Charlie nicking off their Captain Beckham for a duck. Beckham scored a matching winning hundred against us last year so we were delighted that he was not going to repeat that in this game.

Their No.4 looked dangerous for a while but was trapped LBW by Micah before doing any serious damage to have them 3 down, another cleaned bowled by Micah just before drinks had us in a much improved position having secured 4 very important wickets.

Their other opener Marno continued to bat well after drinks bringing up his 50 in good time and playing some very elegant shots and we knew he was the main threat to us, but having reached 62 he got a peach of a ball from Micah and skied a catch to Charlie who took it well at cover.

Micah doing serious damage to Kings, bowled his 10 overs out and finished with superb figures of 5-34 after clean bowling one of the tail, at the other end toiling into the wind was club stalwart Andrew Nuttall also picking up 2 wickets, his figures dented slightly by Kings No.10 Logan Wilson, depositing him over and on to the pavilion roof a couple of times.

Kyle Hastie who bowled his first 4 overs into the wind, came back with the wind after Micah,and bowled with serious heat, picking up 2 clean bowled wickets to end the game with Kings HS 42 runs shy of their target.

So a great way to start the season with a first up win, but more importantly an excellent game of cricket with both sides contributing with bat, ball and in the field.

Willows CC  189/10 Chris Mugford 35, Charlie Finnie 32, Ben Webber 3-25

Kings HS 147/10 Marno Potgieter 62, Logan Wilson 29, Micah Campbell 5-34
