Vernon Price On Target For Saints

Defending a total of 136 with four spin bowlers in their arsenal on a turning wicket, it seemed as though Churchill had a decent chance of winning the cricket match played at St George’s this afternoon. However, theywere out of luck as their spin failed to the trouble the hosts enough.If there was any challenge for St George’s, it came from Kuziva Ziwira,who showed real pace with quality line and length for the greater part of the day. Ziwira was responsible for the scalp of opener, Jeremy Ives, uprooting hismiddle stump to send him off with 25 runs to his name. Earlier Ziwira had Patai put in a superb dive paired with great reflexes to catch Wells at slip.

In their innings, Churchill had struggled to get any strong partnerships going and lost wickets rapidly. The “Bulldogs” from Nigel Phillip Avenue found themselves reeling at 90 for 9, but their lower order batsmen ground it out to help their team post a fair 136 all out. Vernon Price was the stand out player for St George’s, picking up six wickets and registering an economy of 4.1 after bowling 10 overs.Batting sixth for St George’s, K. Matigimu scored an unbeaten 40 including three sixes and two fours to carry his team home. Churchill were made to pay as they dropped Matigimu twice before he won it for Saints who posted a three wicket win.
