A SHEHAN Sinnetamby-inspired Mosman has stunned hosts Mitchell on the final day of the under-13 Western NSW Junior Cricket Carnival, securing a six-wicket win and the 2016 title.
Sinnetamby smashed an unbeaten 73 to guide his side past the 8-140 total Mitchell set at Wade Park on Thursday.
The match-winning knock was the fourth unbeaten innings the young Mosman gun produced during the four-day carnival, with scores of 52 and 23 against the ACT under-15 girls and South Coast respectively bookending a stellar, retired mark of 30 smashed during Wednesday night’s Twenty20 Select clash.
As he was all week, Blake Weymouth was Mitchell’s best with the bat, his knock of 60 helping the black caps to the respectable total of 8-140 from 50 overs.
Mosman bowler Fitz Bowman was the pick of the seamers, snaring 3-17 from his six overs.
It was then over to Sinnetamby, who again showcased his prodigious talent with the willow on the big stage at Wade Park, guiding Mosman to 4-141 in reply.
In the play-off for third, the ACT under-13 boys’ side recorded a three-wicket win over Parramatta at Riawena Oval.
The boys from the capital bowled well to dismiss the Eels for just 45 but found the chase anything but easy as Matt Hurst continued his rich vein of form, taking 3-8 to give his side a sniff of victory.
But the ACT team steadied and reached the target seven wickets down.
