It was another tough day at the crease for North West at the State CHS Boys Cricket Championships.
Beaten by nine wickets on the first day, the Andrew Curry-coached side went down to Sydney East by 80 runs on Tuesday.
The disruption of having to move grounds and drive about 45 minutes didn’t seem to bother the Sydneysiders as they posted 7-223 from their 40 overs.
Curry thought Jaiden Tasker was North West’s best.
“It’s the second day he’s bowled well,” he said.
“He’s taking it away a bit from them and thinking about his bowling, which is good.”
“Joe Smith also bowled well.”
“But it was very hard to bowl because of the wet outfield and wet ball.”
Smith then turned around and top-scored with 26 as North West replied with 143.
It was a frustrating effort with all of the top seven making double figures.
“We’re getting too many starts and no-one going on with it,” Curry said.
