COLLIE’S A-grade cricket return got underway on Saturday with a Twenty20 game against Leschenault Cricket Club.
The game appeared in jeopardy with a shower passing through 45 minutes before start of play.
Luckily it passed through without pushing the start of play back.
Newly appointed A-grade captain Greg Tomasini did not have the best of starts leading the team, losing the toss and having the Collie team sent in to bat on a wicket that favoured the bowlers.
Tom Plummer and Bailey Maloney opened the batting and got off to a good start with Plummer hitting the first ball for four.
Conditions were tough for the batsmen with the ball holding in the wicket and Plummer, Maloney and Brayden Kent were all dismissed cheaply.
With the score at 3-13, young Austin Kent and T20 specialist Matt Tanner had a handy 42-run partnership until Tanner missed a straight one and was bowled for 22.
Tomasini, failed to stay with Austin and was dismissed for three with Austin following soon after for a well-made 26.
Chappell, Hislop, Parkin and Borrett saw out the innings and got the team to 8/86 after the 20 overs.
Collie bowled very well for the first game of the year. Jason Borrett looked sharp with good pace, control and swing.
Ayden “Binger” Parkin steamed in well and deserved his wicket.
Brayden Kent bowled tightly with Matt Tanner to keep Collie in the game for as long as possible.
Tyson Hayes was very hard to get away on the slow wicket with his medium pace bowling.
Although the bowling and ground fielding was great from Collie the most important aspect, catching was lacking with three straight forward chances going down.
It was a good fielding effort from Collie and another 20 runs with some safer hands and the game would have been down to the wire.
Leschenault chased down the total with two and a half overs to spare and three wickets down.
Best Bowlers: B. Kent 1 for 6 from 3; M. Tanner 1 for 11 from 2.3; A. Parkin 1 for 18 from 2.
Best Batsmen: A. Kent 26; M. Tanner 22; R. Chappell 8.
Pine Hauliers A-grade T20 Player of the Day: M. Tanner - 42 pts.

Bill Bebbington took the first wicket with a well held catch in deep outfield by Jacob Denholm.
Brother Rory Bebbington bowled well to take the next wicket.
Nigel Irvine took a good stumping from Denholm.
Ryan Loxton went on to take a wicket in his last over.
Captain Jarved Dallywater took two catches and had a direct hit to get a run out. Colts finished 5/131.
Connor Mumme had a great start with the bat for Collie and in the third over Collie was 34 until Dallywater was caught behind.
Luke McCormick played a steady role in the middle and Dale Elvins managed some quick runs towards the end.
Collie fell short, all out for 90 in the 18th over.
