Valiant century not enough to score win
DAN Harvey's first century for the BITS Cricket Club has not been enough for the club to prevail over Rockhampton Brothers.
Chasing a huge 254, Harvey was the major run scorer for the home side in reply, tallying more than half the total while the batting line-up struggled around him.
Had the performance in the field been better, Harvey's century might have meant more.
"We dropped a bloke and he made 118, dropping catches hurt us again," captain Dave Webber said.
"We dropped him on four."
Realistically, BITS could have limited Brothers to 160 or less with the wicket.
It is the tale of the season so far for the BITS side, completing half an innings with tight bowling, but not taking enough wickets.
The second half of the innings their opponents can apply themselves chasing a higher run rate.
"We bowled all right for the first 20 again. They were three for 81 so we were looking good," Webber said.
"We ended up getting reasonably close. We were 197 and we started not too bad."
Rockhampton Brothers 7/254
