T20 McIntosh Shield Grade
The RCDA won the toss and sent BHRDCA into bat, and it was soon realized by RDCA that this was a big mistake. Nick Chancellor and Ben Joseph opened the batting, with Chancellor going out for 4 runs off 5 balls. Joseph hit the ground running and started hitting boundaries after only a few deliveries. Chelvin, Wise, OShea, all going out very cheaply but this did not stop a rampant Joseph who by the end of a shortened match due to earlier rain, smashed 72 from just 35 deliveries, in what was a T20 clinic from an in form player. All up BHRDCA scored 7/147 from just 15 overs.
RDCA came in to bat and the BHRDCA bowling attack was weathering the storm very well keeping everyone down on scoring except for Adams with 51 off 36 balls. A late surge toward the end of the innings was not enough for RDCA to get over the line with other notable scores being Stevenson (37) and Mitchell not out on 24. A stellar bowling performance from Newey with figures of 4/16 after 3 overs. In the end RDCA finished up with 8/131 at the end of their 15 overs.
T20 Wilson Shield Grade
With the ECA needing to withdraw from the game only a single match was played at Kimberly Reserve in Chirnside Park. With bad weather looming the BHRDCA started poorly with Fenner, Hunt and Proctor all going out very cheaply. Arnold battled on and made 13 off 16 balls. Rain delayed play as a thunderstorm passed over. After approximately half an hour, play resumed, and the wickets continued to tumble for the BHRDCA with Farry bowled for 5 off 16, Theunissen caught off the bowling of Pandya for 11, Ross LBW on his first ball for a duck, Fox run out without facing a ball and Volpe caught for 1 off 6 deliveries. Hodges and Humphries, representing the tail end of the innings, both battled on to see out the full 20 overs after being 9/38 at the 13th over. At the end of the innings BHRDCA were 9/69 with Hodes on 20 off 21 balls and Humphries at 13 from 29 balls.
The RDCA came into bat and at the end of a very expensive first over Humphries took the first wicket, but the precedence had been set with RDCA being 1/14 at the end of the first over. Jensen came in to bowl the second over and on his second ball claimed Wong who mishit the ball and was caught for a duck. Humphries bowled a much more tidy second over getting another wicket and at the end of the third over it was 3/19. The runs flowed but so did the wickets for BHRDCA, RDCA batsmen were Pandya 18 from 16 balls, Johnson 11 from 6 balls faced, Nelson and DeSilva both not out and hitting the winning runs.
