NATHAN Rosenblatt had to form his own cricket team just to get a bowl.
Over the past two and a half seasons Rosenblatt lined-up for Thangool Possums but their long list of bowlers restricted his time with the ball to just a handful of overs.
On Sunday in his first game for Primed XI, Rosenblatt managed to complete five overs - it would have been more if he hadn't bowled out the opposition. Finally given a chance with the red pill Rosie picked up 6/36 with his deceptive off-spin.
Rosie's routing with the ball resulted in Taipans being bowled out for 125, infact the score would have been significantly less if it wasn't for a rally by Allan Anderson (36) and Ross Clancy (12).
Primed lost three quick wickets before Josh Allen (28) and Brian Challacombe (46) pushed the score to 99, but then the tail fell away and they were all out for 117.
“It was our first game and we are still trying to work out a batting order and bowling attack. But the guys had a great time,” Rosenblatt said.
In Baralaba, M Ferrier compiled 64 and Brian Bidgood 32 not out during Goovigen/Baralaba's 174 run innings. Grant Weller picked up 5/29 but lacked support from his team-mates. In reply, Thangool were dismissed for 116 with Ray Stanley (38) top scoring. Monto defeated Colts, but no scores were available.
