Saturday 20th March
Hedley Howarth Trophy | Round Seven
Papatoetoe 259 (L Clark 95, L Istead 84, L Ferguson 3-40, J Parsons 3-40) play Parnell 240/5 (A Parikh 86*, A Lane 36, F McGregor-Sumpter 36)
There were plenty of runs at Papatoetoe Recreation Ground, with Parnell pushing their Hedley Howarth Trophy defence into the final day of the season.
Batting first, Papatoetoe were in deep trouble at 87/7. Lockie Ferguson and Jack Parsons both claimed figures of 3-40 and were responsible for a lot of the early carnage. The fight, however, wasn’t sucked out of Papatoetoe with Logan Clark (95) and Luke Istead (84) battling away. Papatoetoe’s best partnership came right at the end, with Istead adding 89 runs with No. 11 Avnit Prasad to boost their total to 259.
Aniket Parikh (86*) then lead a confident batting effort from Parnell with last week’s heroes Andy Lane and Flynn McGregor-Sumpter both adding 36. Parnell will resume at 240/5, 19 runs short of first-innings points.
