Captain's key to grand final

Posted: 7am 09 Apr 2021

Peninsula’s captain Doug Sheridan believes teamwork will be one of the keys to this weekend’s Warehouse Cricket Association B2N Grand Final.

Toowong, who finished runners-up to Peninsula in the regular season, await in the two-day finale (April 10-11). In matches so far this season Peninsula lead 2-1.

“Every game has gone down to the wire,” said Sheridan, on the attack in the picture above, “statistically all 11 of our players contribute and if we play as a team I am confident we will have a good chance.”

Planning ahead

Sheridan said they were drawing up plans for some of the stronger Toowong players and know it will be tougher than the semi-final.

Peninsula posted 146 before skittling St Paul’s for just 43 with inform Ross Green taking 6-27 from 20.2 overs

“I thought 146 was 20 runs short of par,” said Sheridan, “I was confident, but concerned. I still thought it was a 50:50 game.

“But we bowled very accurately and clinically. We clamped down on their runs and it was a great win.”

Semi-final exit

Unfortunately, the A1 side will not be joining their B2N colleagues in their final after losing to Mater Hill on first innings.

The visitors made 161 from 75 overs with Nick Turner 5-41 and Elijah Rafter 4-46 taking all but one of the wickets.

In reply Peninsula managed 128 from 52 overs, Hayden Marks top scoring with 47 made in more three hours. Steve Adnams hit 26.

Mater Hill were 5-65 at the close, Turner taking 2-2 and Rafter 2-28.
