LIVE: Towers vs Cromer, T20 Semi Final

Live updates from the Twenty20 Cup semi final between the Collaroy Plateau Cricket Club Towers and the Cromer Squids to be posted here. Match due to commence at 3pm. Stay tuned!

12.27 pm

Tom Carden -

Hi all, the Live Stream player is up and our commentary will be starting shortly!

6.21 pm

Tom Carden -

That’s all she wrote. About 30 runs short. Cromer too good today, they bowled particularly well. The difference were the starts. Cromer raced away at more than 10 an over. While the Plateau stuttered at 22 off the first 6. There just wasn’t enough boundary hitting from there to recover. So no 4th Cup for the Plateau this year, but another good campaign. Good luck to Cromer in the GF.

Tom Carden -

48 off 3. Singh back into the attack.

5.56 pm

Only 4 off that over. Back in trouble. 71 required off 6 overs.

5.45 pm

Tom Carden -

11 off that over! Good one for Plateau. Not out of it yet.

5.39 pm

Tom Carden -

Only 3 off that over. Not enough. 86 to win off 8.

5.37 pm

Tom Carden -

Bang! Brodes goes big! Straight down the ground for 6. Lovely shot. He hit the previous ball for a dropped catch 4 through mid wicket.

13 off that one. Just what the Dr ordered.

5.33 pm

Tom Carden -

100 off 10 overs required for Plateau. Brodie and Minnett out there at the moment.

5.28 pm

Tom Carden -

Finally a boundary! Brodie smashes this one down the ground for 4.

5.20 pm

Tom Carden -

Jakes been bowled by Singh. Real trouble now for Plateau.

5.09 pm

Tom Carden -

Jake in now. Huge job to do.

5.08 pm

Tom Carden -

Bonner on the front foot and tries to slog this down the ground but it’s skied very high up in the air. Mid off takes a good catch and he’s gone.

5.05 pm

Tom Carden -

Just 1/15 off 4.

5.04 pm

Tom Carden -

Bonner smacks one into a gap in the off side for a couple.

5.02 pm

Tom Carden -

Not sure if Brodie forgot it was a free hit… He plays and misses with a defensive shot.

5.01 pm

Tom Carden -

No ball and free hit. Very high that one. Brodie to face the free hit.

5.01 pm

Tom Carden -

1/9 off 3. This isn’t looking good for Plateau at the moment. They now need 142 to win off 102 balls.

4.51 pm

Tom Carden -

Just 1 off the first over.. Bit of a mix up too, missed the single off an almost catch.

4.47 pm

Tom Carden -

Cromer finished on 9/144. A very competitive score on this slow Nolans ground. Plateau missed a trick with that bad start and could have had Cromer under a lot more pressure through that innings. Big job ahead of the Plateau batsmen but we have a long batting lineup.

4.45 pm

Tom Carden -

Bonner and Dunny to open up. 1456033456701-91851685

Finally some more runs for Cromer. Big 6 over cow corner.

4.26 pm

Another one down! Counsell tries to go over cover but its straight to Harry running in from the deep. Great catch! 9 balls to go.

4.24 pm

And now Sam takes the wicket! Full and Goodwin skies it high in the air. Minnett takes a very good catch at mid on.

4.11 pm

Tom Carden -

Two consecutive sixes to start Sam’s spell. Cromer have finally doubled their score from the 5th over.

4.08 pm

Jake finishes his spell. He took 2/18 and the score is 97 after 14.

Jeff into the attack now. Needs to steady the ship for CPCC. Another expensive over the last one.

3.23 pm

Tom Carden -

5 overs gone 0/55. Will Hurst on now.

3.22 pm

Tom Carden -

Plateau getting their lengths all wrong at the moment. Far to many short balls, Kenna dispatches this one over backward point for 4.

3.20 pm

Tom Carden -

Kenna is dropped again at mid off. This could really sting the Plateau. He follows it up with a 4 through backward square.

3.16 pm

Welcome to our Live Blog of what is sure to be a high quality match today. It’s been a rather soggy morning, but the rain has ceased and it looks like play will begin as scheduled this afternoon.

David Le has been down to the ground to inspect the conditions. He says the outfield is fine, pitch is a bit wet but should be good to go by 3pm.
