Lessons learnt from that friendly at least, tried to go in with 3 main seamers and stack the batting, hoping Poltgeiter (who is solid with the ball) and Glenn who is less so as a frontline bowler but done okay at other times when he's bowled just a couple overs would do okay for me in conditions friendly to seamers.Bit of a thumping this game. Winton CC got an early wicket - medium pacer Jayraj Chandrasekaran trapping 21 year old Shahbaz Furqan LBW in the 7th over - but that brought ZCC's two best batters together in the middle. 22-year old Sajith D Estandau (135 off 134) and 21-year old Bangladeshi international Raun Shkorer (131 off 115) weathered the new ball before stepping on the gas, adding 242 runs for the 2nd wicket in just 211 balls. Winton managed to pick up regular wickets once this partnership was broken, but ZCC still ended on a massive 322/6. New-ball specialist Bikswing Nouding then took 4/25 in 7 overs, tearing through the Winton CC top order. They are currently 131/8 in 35 overs.
Expert preview has ZCC rated 59K vs Winton's 50K, so they'll be a bit disappointed with this. Having said that, ZCC have picked up Friendly 50 over wins against sides rated 61K and 64K this past week. Always helps when your gun batsmen score runs.
