Tight affair on the pitch

Tight affair on the pitch

The mighty Boorowa Crocs travelled to Gundaroo on Saturday for their annual Jane McGrath Pink Stumps Day.

Despite some windy and chilly conditions, the crowd were treated to a tight affair.

Captain Carmo won the toss and elected to bat.

Greeny spent some much needed time in the middle, compiling a very nice 47 over 23 overs - a great anchor role that will set him up to cash in over the finals series.

Solid digs by Josh Carmody (36), Jacob Carmody (25) and Chris Dwyer (22) helped the Crocs set a decent total of 167 - which on the slow outfield felt like a good total.

In response, Gundaroo offered up very few chances in the first 20 overs, losing only a couple of wickets.

At drinks, the game was on a knife-edge and the Crocs knew chances were going to come their way as Gundaroo chased the final 100 runs.

It went down to the wire, with Gundaroo getting the runs 6 wickets down, with only four balls to spare.

Wickets to Josh Carmody (2), Jacob Carmody, Nick Dwyer and Jason Stuart - but unfortunately the Crocs put down too many catches in the last 10 overs to close out the game.

A big thank-you and well done to the Gundaroo Cricket Club for a great fundraising day for a good cause.

Noisey even took out the major prize in the raffle and exited the Gundaroo pub late evening with a sparkly new socket set under his arm, ready for anything.

Players' Player was Greeny in a landslide. The Crocs have a bye this weekend and will ramp up ready for finals starting February 27.
