ALL cricket across the country has been canceled due to Covid-19!

Following the first person-to-person transmission of Covid-19 overnight, the medical advice around the potential risk for community sport is now considerably higher. Consequently, Auckland Cricket have taken the decision to cancel all cricket for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. 

We understand the disappointment and inconvenience that this might cause but our first priority at the moment is the health and wellbeing of the cricket, and wider, community. We do not want to put anyone at risk in what is a rapidly evolving and unique situation.

We have taken this decision as early as possible, to give clubs more time to react and communicate to members. This is a cancellation happening across the country, led by NZC the MA’s and DA’s. You will shortly see a message from NZC to this effect.

Why has this decision been made?

Based on expert advice from New Zealand Cricket’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Martin Swan and recent government information we want to ensure that cricket is acting to pre-emptively suppress the spread of coronavirus.

While cricket is a non-contact sport there are considerable measures that need to be in place to adhere to expert advice around reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Our focus specifically is on minimising the risk and impact on the cricket community and ensuring health and well-being is our highest priority.

What is cancelled?

All Auckland Cricket administered competitions. 

How will champions be determined?

Over the next few days, we will work through how we determine finishing competitions. We will keep communicating through this process and reasoning around it.

What about non-ACA administered competitions?

We strongly recommend that clubs and other cricket organisations cancel all competitions.

What about end of season events?

Our advice is that clubs cancel or postpone all end of season events / prizegivings, and make arrangements to recognise achievements at a later date.*

Parnell vs. Papatoetoe – Shore Road

Parnell took a step closer to lifting the Hedley Howarth Trophy with a clinical batting effort to take first-innings points against Papatoetoe.

Having let Papatoetoe off the hook with tail-order runs, Parnell resumed on Day Two with work to do at 22/1. From the very first ball of the day, Sunit Birla nabbed Papatoetoe’s second wicket. Ben Rainger (69) and Fanie de Villiers then put on 63 for the third wicket to put the chase back on track.
de Villiers dominated the scoring, hitting 5 fours and 2 sixes on his way to 44 off 42 balls. When the all-rounder’s breezy knock was ended by Harshal Vyas (3-59), Andy Lane strode to the wicket.

Lane provided the backbone for another successful afternoon for the Peaches. Lane’s fourth-wicket stand of 131 with Rainger (69) took the hosts to a position of comfort. With 12 fours and a six, Lane made his way to 92 from 120 balls. The pair were both dismissed before going past Papatoetoe’s 261, but the job was largely done. Parnell were eventually bowled out for 303 with Ish Sohi taking three middle-order wickets. Shane Setia (55*) then scored his second fifty of the match before the players shook hands for the day.

Papatoetoe 261 (S Setia 81, L Istead 57*, J Plummer 37, J Parsons 3-34, J Fisher 3-54, O Pringle 3-67) and 97/3 (S Setia 55*) lost first innings to Parnell 303 (A Lane 92, B Rainger 69, F de Villiers 44, H Vyas 3-59, I Sohi 3-85)

Papatoetoe vs. Cornwall – Papatoetoe Recreation Ground

A tight contest between Papatoetoe and Cornwall saw Lydia Batin put in a fine all-round performance to see the visitors sneak home.

A second-wicket partnership between Lelia Bourne (29) and Taofi Lafai (27) proved to be the only one of significance for Papatoetoe as the Cornwall attack ran through the rest of the order. The wickets were shared around with Emily Thurman taking 3-31 and Issy Gerrand, Isabelle O’Connell and Batin claiming two apiece.

Chasing 120, Cornwall fell into early trouble at 29/4. Skipper Claire Crooks helped steady the ship with Thurman, but Papatoetoe kept fighting. Papatoetoe’s opening duo Helen Semau and Lafai (3-34) accounted for five of the eight wickets to fall before Batin (24*), Phoebe Jones and O’Connell rallied late on to help Cornwall to a two-wicket win.

Papatoetoe 119 (E Thurman 3-31) lost to Cornwall 120/8 (T Lafai 3-34) by two wickets.
