Dedicated Hansen gives outstanding performance
ROD Hansen was the toast of the Warwick Hotel Colts cricket team after taking a hat-trick and 7-0 in his side's victory against Inglewood on the synthetic at Inglewood yesterday.
Widely regarded as one of the most dedicated players in Warwick cricket, Hansen bowled three of his victims, and had three caught behind the wicket and one off a hook shot.
Colts captain Shanun O'Leary said Hansen swung the ball at Inglewood in an outstanding performance.
"They were surprised when we won the toss and sent them in," O'Leary said.
Hansen took one hat-trick and wickets off the final two balls of the innings.
Cameron Peterson had first use of the new ball to take 2-9 off his three overs. With one leg bye, the Inglewood score was 10 all out.
In reply, John Cleary hit one six and two fours in an unbeaten 16 to win the game in the first over.
Hosts Inglewood then offered to play Colts in a Twenty20 game which the Warwick team won in a closer game with John Cleary hitting 51 and O'Leary 31.
In a day of outstanding performances, Rob Lindsay scored 172 in the Maryvale/Condamine 213-victory against Allora at Queens Park.
Batting first, Maryvale scored 6-377. Lindsay added 162 with Michael Bourke.
Lauchlan Hoey was the best of the Allora bowlers with 2-62 off 10 overs.
Opener Aaron Veitheer scored a quick 40 for Allora before spinner Jimmy Osborn took 6-38 off eight overs to secure an easy victory.
Mitch McLennan was the best of the Allora batsmen with 54. Lindsay capped a fine day with 2-19 off six overs with the ball.
