RHC Beat Watsonians for the Second Time in a Week

By

RHC overcame Watsonians by 5 runs to claim their second win in the Masterton T20 Trophy.

RHC started and finished well in Thursday’s Masterton Trophy clash against Watsonians. Despite a 32-ball 76 from opener Carson, RHC came out on top against Sonians for the second time in less than a week. The BBQ was up and running, thanks to Dhiren Naidu and the All Stars section of the club were tearing around on the Rugby pitch with Rex Hugill and Rob Clarkson. There was a brilliant club atmosphere at Barnton as players, juniors, friends and families all gathered to watch a thrilling T20 encounter between two Premiership sides.

Skipper Kinghorn-Gray won another toss and elected to bat on a flat looking deck. Pakistan international Azam and Taylor opened the batting and got RHC off to a swift start, reaching 40 before Taylor, who played a couple of delightful drives and cuts, was bowled for 14 in the fifth over. This didn’t deter Azam though, as he hit boundary after boundary on his way to a 36-ball 70. Azam hit 11 fours and 2 maximums. Flett, Sathiy, Haq, and Kinghorn-Gray all came and went for 10 or less in a middle order collapse, but the ship was steadied by Wood (26) and Blease (10) who got RHC up to 169-6 off of their 20 overs.

As this was a T20, Watsonians didn’t have to suffer a LONG walk back to the Pavilion for an average tea. Munsey and Carson opened for Watsonians, and propelled them to 23-0 after two overs. Young came onto bowl the third, bowling Munsey on his way to a wicket maiden. The next batsman out was A Chalmers who was caught by Kinghorn-Gray off the bowling of Blease with the score at 57 in the 7th over. Carson and E Chalmers then put on 87 over the next eight overs to pit RHC on the back foot but six fine overs from Kinghorn-Gray and Azam removed Carson and Chalmers. Between them, Kinghorn-Gray and Azam went for 26 and took four wickets in what turned out to be a match changing six overs. With 20 needed off the last two overs, RHC looked nervous as a Young full toss went for six, but then he bought it back and sent Hindmarsh on a LONG walk back to the Pavilion as he was caught by Haq. It was Haq who secured the win in the last over, with a run out from Kinghorn-Gray and a caught and bowled off the last ball when six was needed.
