Spyve looks for a late rush of runs
BROTHERS first-grade captain Lachlan Spyve is searching for a late rush of runs at Rockhampton's Kalka Shades today.
Spyve (0 no) and Eden Keliher (3 no) return to the crease with Brothers struggling at 8/101 in their Southern Star Sports Shield 2005/06 season round four clash against Cap Coast.
Batting at number 10 is unusual territory for Spyve, who usually bats in the middle order, and last weekend he was hoping for a different outcome.
"It wasn't exactly a batsman's paradise, but the shot selection was poor last weekend with everyone getting out caught,'' Spyve said.
"I was just planning on sitting back with my feet up and watching the boundaries flow ? before I know it I had the pads on.''
Spyve would like another 50 or 60 runs today before Cap Coast's run chase.
Shaun Gilvear is the scoring danger for Cap Coast while their captain Justin Stower can occupy the crease for a lengthy time.
Brothers will look to Murray Harch and Scott Mansfield for quick wickets.
In other games today, Gracemere are struggling at 9/76 against Frenchville at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds while CQU Tigers resume at 2/112 against Bluebirds at Jardine Park.
