Brothers give cricketing lesson
“WE WERE never in the game.”
This was the blunt assessment Tucabia White captain Chris Adamson made after his side were given a cricketing lesson by Brothers at Ulmarra on Saturday.
“Brothers were just too good,” he said.
On a perfect wicket for batting and a lightning outfield Brothers captain Mick Summers had no hesitation in batting first.
Brothers went on to post a more than competitive score of 5-233 with partnerships being the order of the day.
Most batsmen managed to reach double figures with Michael Summers (65) and Adam Dewberry (46 not out) tormenting the Tucabia attack.
Summers has stepped up to the mark in recent weeks after taking on the captaincy role from Brad Robertson who is on representative duty.
“Mick (Summers) played an important controlled innings,” Adamson said.
“Our bowling in the first 14 overs was fairly tight except we seemed to manage one bad ball per over.
“It was a very fast outfield. Once the ball got through the field it was always going to be four.”
Only Matt Pigg put his hand up for Tucabia and finished with 2-47 while Adrian Boyd snared 2-43.
In reply Tucabia White lost early wickets and slumped to 3-43 until Matt Blanch and Andrew Buchanan put on 72 runs.
A steady flow of wickets saw Tucabia dismissed for 198 with Adamson belting 45.
Sam Jackson (3-59) and Ryan Lynch (3-19) bowled well.
