v Waitakere @ Michaels Ave #1 (11 Feb & 18 Feb)
Ellerslie: N/a [IN PROGRESS] against Waitakere: 290 all out in 97.1 overs
A hot day and what looked like a flat wicket meant that as usual I lost the toss and we were bowling first.
We bowled very well for the first two sessions, runs hard to come by with Waitak 54/3 off 32 at lunch, and 132/4 off 68 at Tea.
A couple of dropped chances saw us fail to prevent a good partnership between their numbers 6 and 7, who upped the run rate gradually and took them past 200.
Some late hitting saw Waitak reach a pretty good total of 290, all out in the final over of the day.
Jeremy Myers and Dipesh Patel both picked up 3 wickets a piece, with Jeremy unlucky not to take more.
The game is well poised heading into day 2.

Kings College lost their first wicket at 20 runs,but more wickets were needed for Ellerslie to have any chance of pulling off a surprise win.
