PNBHS 1stXI Cricket vs Palmerston CC – 09/02/19 – Day 1 of 2
Batting first after winning the toss, the 1st XI lost 3 early wickets before a 60 run partnership rebuilt the innings and allowed the middle and lower order to set up a competitive total of 212 all out. Once again, a number of batsmen got themselves out with indecisiveness and a lack of commitment. Jonty Fleck scored 26, Regan Fleming 27, Levi Woolston a patient 27 in his first dig as an opener and Mr Davidson 78.
This left PNBHS 27 overs to bowl at the opposition. The opening pair bowled with the fire and accuracy that was lacking against Napier and were rewarded with 3 wickets with Palmerston on 23. The incoming batsmen resorted to aggression and scored quickly, helped out by a number of missed chances in the field to finish the day on 103 for 4 (when it should have been 80-odd for 7).
