Western Wildfires Cricket Updates

The Western Wildfires played their first game since returning from the State Championships and were able to find form recording a good win against Port Jackson (Sydney).

Port Jackson won the toss and decided to bat first making a reasonably good 9/141. Most of the bowlers did their part well with Rod Evans taking 3/15 and Nev Castle 2/15 being the multiple wicket takers.

The Wildfires only lost 2 wickets in reaching 2/143 with 5 overs remaining. Rod Evans, Ian Iveson, Steve Walsh, Nev Castle and Steve Moore all making it into the 20s being either retired or not out.

It was good to Steve Moore back after snapping his Achilles tendon in his only other game nearly 2 years ago.

There are no games for the next few weeks as the National 60s and 70s take place in Western Australia. Some of the Wildfires will play with other teams at the State 65s Championships in early December before the Christmas break.
