The Central Coast Cyclones and Western Wildfires posted wins when the NSW Veterans Cricket Championships continued in Tamworth on Tuesday.

Only the Division 2 sides played with the Division 1 and 3 sides enjoying a rest day.

The Cyclones blew Port Jackson Blue away amassing 7-202 and then restricting them to 1-135.

Douglas Trigg set the tone with the bat for the Cyclones hitting 40 (retired) at the top of the order. He was well backed up by Panchadcharam Selvarajan (38), Len Hardy (21), Greig Buscombe (25) and Garry Crowe (26no).

Opening the batting, Rupert Matthews made 40 (ret) and Wasantha Hettiarachchi an unbeaten 40 for Port Jackson but they couldn’t keep pace with the Cyclones run-rate.

In the other game there was no gold for the home side with the Wildfires notching a four-wicket win.

Batting first Tamworth Gold recovered from some early trouble to reach 5-171 from their 40 overs.

They were 2-15 before Col Barton (41 ret) and Ron Radford (40 ret) came together. Graeme Whitten also chimed in with 29no down the order.

Tamworth struck almost immediately but the Wildfires chased down the runs with two and a bit overs to spare. 

Tony Burrows and Bruce Pearce anchored the chase, both making 42 ret.

Rolling the arm over: Port Jackson's Ross Dalgleish finished with 1-17 from his three overs during his side's loss to the Central Coast Cyclones on Tuesday.
