Munro helps Animals score a win
TONY Munro was the star as Sovereign Animals beat Wheatvale by five runs in the Warwick cricket match on Sunday at Slade Park.
Munro carried his bat through the 40 overs of the Animals innings to score an unbeaten 68 in his side’s 135. Brendan Malone took 3-16 off six overs for Wheatvale.
When it was Wheatvale’s turn at the crease, Munro was on target with the ball to take 3-22.
When captain Craig Cantwell, 34, and paceman Hugh Wren, 23, were involved in a sixth-wicket partnership, Wheatvale looked set to win but a late-order collapse resulted in an Animals victory.
Laurie Wagner had Nathan Bell leg before wicket for 10 to secure the last wicket. In yesterday’s Daily News, it was reported that Wheatvale won by five runs but this was not the case. The mistake was made after only one scoresheet, which was not complete, was received by deadline.
Captains are reminded that completed scoresheets for each innings with a match report on the back should be put through the slit in the northern side door of the Daily News which is 10 metres from the front of the building.
Scoresheets should be left at the newspaper office within one hour of the finish of each game. Match reports must indicate the first names of players who lead the batting, bowling, take a classic catch or are involved in a run out.
