Colts vs Randwick-Petersham Gold - Round 12 - 2011/12
My promise to you all is that this report will be short and factual. After the entertaining efforts of Dan Stickland's last match report, detailing a day of no play, and our designated author being a late inclusion in the 5th Grade side, no-one else put their hand up to write a report for our match against the second Randwick-Petersham side.

After forfeiting against the other Randwick-Petersham side, we were behind the 8-ball coming into the second half of the season and wanted to take as many points as we could from the other Randwick side.
We won the toss and sent them in, hoping to bowl them out cheaply. However, they had other plans, capitalising on some slightly wayward bowling from Leiboff and Stickland. It wasn't until Millar, Ahmed and Nirthanakumaran had the ball in hand the the Randwick innings came crashing down, bowling them out for 100 at a very sedate pace in just over 40 overs.
Fonseka started the innings well, but Partridge and Coleman departed early, before Mart, Leiboff, Aarons and Brendan Gray - filling in for us - put a few runs on the board in quick succession before all departing quickly and leaving us at 7/85.
Enter Ahmed and Millar. 8 balls later and the side was home, within 21 overs and taking 2 bonus points back old Chatswood way.
