Belvedere crash to first defeat of the season

PUBLISHED: 09:55 17 June 2016 | UPDATED: 09:55 17 June 2016

Belvedere lost their unbeaten record at home to Wellington 2nd XI, who were also unbeaten.

The clash of the top two unbeaten sides saw Belvedere slip to a 37-run defeat at home to Wellington 2nd XI.

Wellington were asked to bat on a drying wicket giving assistance to the opening attack of Sam Mccrea and CJ Neate. Mccrea soon accounted for Holloway well caught by Nathan Hancock and Neate dismissed Crout soon after at 14-2.

Moysey and Hendy battled to gain a foothold against an excellent bowling display from the home side. Wickets fell at regular intervals aided by a superb fielding and catching display, such that at the end of their 45 overs Wellington had crawled to 104-9.

The excellent bowling display were shown in the figures of Mccrea (9-4-18-2), Neate (9-2-18-1), Jack Neville (9-2-18-3), Nil Chatterjee (9-2-19-0), Neil Chadwick (5-1-9-2) and Kevin Crockett (4-0-18-1).

Neville also held three catches and Mike Hosey was excellent behind the stumps with two stumpings.

Belvedere’s response with the bat was the complete opposite to their earlier efforts. In a poor batting display, with the exception of Mike Hosey (28), Belvedere collapsed from 59-3 to 67 all out.

All Stars man of the match was shared between Jack Neville and Mike Hosey.
