Premier Men

Sunday 14th March

Richard Jones Cup | Final

Eden Roskill 231/8 (M Abbas 73, S Mutjaba 55) defeated Papatoetoe 182 (B Rowland 66, L Clark 49, S Mutjaba 5-32, H Johal 3-29) by 49 runs.

Eden Roskill have lifted the inaugural Richard Jones Cup after a dominant display against Papatoetoe at Keith Hay Park on Sunday.

The Wolves were made to work for a total, after falling to 65/3 in the 20th over. Through the early wobble fought Syed Mutjaba, who kicked of an outstanding all-round day with a defiant 55 off 90 balls. Mujtaba found excellent support in young Muhammad Abbas, batting at five.

When Mujtaba was dismissed in the 30th over, Abbas took over the responsibility of seeing Roskill through to a defendable total. Abbas took the Wolves past 200 with 73 off 86 balls, before the lower order lifted the total to 231/8.

Sunit Birla and Josh Plummer were the best of the Papatoetoe bowlers, not only taking two wickets each but also rolling through economical spells throughout.

Papatoetoe’s chase started similarly and was reeling at 25/2. Barrington Rowland (66) and Logan Clark (49) then put together an 81-run third-wicket stand to take control of the chase. Needing five runs an over for the final 25 overs and with Rowland and Clark set, Papatoetoe were firm favourites.

It then became the Mujtaba and Kumar show as Roskill fought back from the brink. Kumar would finish with 2-18 from his ten overs, but it was the Roskill skipper who had the biggest say.

Mujtaba’s decision to give himself a bowl proved an inspired one, decimating the Papatoetoe middle-order and adding figures of 5-32 to his 55 with the bat.

In the end, Papatoetoe were bowled out for 182 in the 48th over. With their 49-run victory, Eden Roskill clinched the Richard Jones Cup and promotion to the Jeff Crowe Cup for 2021/22.

Saturday 13th March

Hedley Howarth Trophy | Round Six

Day One – abandoned as Auckland was in Level Three.

Cornwall 179/9 dec. (S Crooks 56, S Birla 3-25, D Bhatti 3-61) lost to Papatoetoe 180/5 (L Yugaraja 41*, S Money 39) on first innings.

Papatoetoe put together a confident all-round performance against Cornwall to lift themselves into sixth place. Bowling first, Papatoetoe applied early pressure. With Cornwall’s top-four out before the end of 20 overs, Papatoetoe could continue to squeeze the host’s middle order.

Sam Crooks (56*) and Jamie Hayes (29) built away to lift their side to 179/9 before the compulsory declaration at 50 overs. By then, Sunit Birla and Daman Bhatti has both picked up three wickets apiece. 

The visitor’s reply may have finished a comfortable one, but Cornwall kept themselves in the contest reducing Papatoetoe to 118/5. Stephen Money (39) had held the inning together up until that point, but it was left to Arnie Yuguraja (41*) and Luke Istead (29*) to finish the job. The pair put on 62 off 40 balls taking Papatoetoe into a first-innings lead.

1000 runs for Barrington!  

During Sunday's Final, Barrington Rowland brought up his 1000th run for the Club when he was on 12, in his 66-run opening knock, and now has 1054 runs and sits 2nd on ACA's Premier Men's Batting Leaderboard.

The 1000-run milestone hasn't been reached since the 2015/16 season, so a big congrats to Barrington for reaching it in his first season (of many) with the club.
