Warwick club cricket match comes down to the last ball
CRICKET: Captain Tyhe Clarkson and Coen Slatter starred with the bat as Redbacks beat Inglewood on the last ball of the game in Condamine Cup cricket on Saturday at Inglewood.
Batting first, Inglewood made 285 with Shane Hooper hitting 137 not out. Sam Waetford took 3-36 for Redbacks.
Slatter opened the batting for Redbacks and made 74 from 44 balls. He added 122 for the first wicket with Kerin Politch who made 30.
Both were dismissed in quick succession and then Waetford, 27, and Clarkson added 60. Clarkson and Glen Mackie, 26, combined well before Mackie was out.
Dave Drewery added a quick 18 and Harrison Wollerman was not out seven and at the bowler's end when the winning runs were scored.
Redbacks needed four runs off the last ball and Clarkson flicked an overpitched ball to the square leg fence to record his team's fourth win of the season. Clarkson top scored with an unbeaten 75.
Tyler Wolff took 2-30 for Inglewood.
Clarkson was high in praise of the spell of Jamien Smith who took 1-39 off eight overs.
Warwick cricketers will now have two weekends off for the holiday period.
