WINTER: Another update from New Zealand and Bangladesh

12-Dec-2014

It was disappointment this week for two Sharks in New Zealand as Auckland were beaten in the final of the Georgie Pie Super Smash tournament.

Luke Wright and Craig Cachopa (pictured) had been instrumental in leading Auckland to the final of the competition, the latter smashing an unbeaten 79 from only 47 deliveries in the previous day’s preliminary final win over Northern Districts last Saturday.

But in Sunday’s final, Auckland couldn’t quite overhaul Wellington’s total of 186 despite contributions from Wright (21) and Cachopa (37) and the Firebirds claimed the Super Smash Trophy.

Wright now moves on to Australia to take part in the Big Bash for the Melbourne Stars, a tournament that begins next Thursday, as the Stars take on the Adelaide Strikers at the Adelaide Oval.

Cachopa is straight into first-class action for Auckland who faced Wellington again this week in a four-day match. After he and his two brothers (Brad and Carl) took an incredible nine catches between them in Wellington’s first-innings, Craig went on to make 46 in Auckland’s reply despite retiring hurt on 22 due to a blow to the elbow. His side are three runs ahead of their opponents after the second day.

Over in Bangladesh, all-rounder Ashar Zaidi was again amongst the runs for the Legends of Rupganj as they beat Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club by 28 runs in a reduced-over match. He hit 47 from 41 balls as the Legends, who also can include Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan amongst their ranks, made 211 from 30.1 overs.
