Bowlers set the tone for City

City United cricketers hold top spot heading into the Christmas break.

City United skipper Sam Cardinal says his bowlers set the tone in the Knights’ potential finals preview victory against Irrewarra.

Kane Leersen had another four-wicket haul to take his season total to 14 wickets from three games, and had plenty of help from Shane Currie, 3-28, and Mitch McGlade, 2-33.

City dismissed the Redbacks for 136 despite solid knocks from Dave Jackson, 44, and Ian Taylor, 23.

The Knights then chased down the total in 39 overs, with seven wickets in hand.

Alex Inglis, 43 runs, Achira Eranga, 30, and Cardinal, 34 not out, all made starts for City, which heads into the Christmas break on top of the ladder.

“It was a pretty solid win,” Cardinal said.

“We bowled well, it was a pretty quick ground on a hard wicket so we set the task for ourselves to start with the ball,” he said.

“I thought we fielded pretty well, but the bowlers have backed it up every week really, the last month, they just keep building.”
