Cricket is always the winner. The HPCC premier women side come together with visitors Kumeu/NSCC after an emphatic Llamas win.

After rain disrupted play a week earlier, the Howick Pakuranga Cricket Club (HPCC) was back in action at the weekend, with the premier women (Llamas) storming to their first win of the season in dramatic fashion.

The Llamas elected to bat first at Lloyd Elsmore Park, playing host to the new Kumeu/North Shore side.

The runs flowed from ball one, with openers Saachi Shahri (89 off 61) and Radhika Patel (24 off 53) putting together a partnership of 126 before the loss of their first wicket.

There was no slowing them down with HPCC’s Neena Woollaston scoring 52 not out and Holly Topp scoring 85 not out.

The Llamas scored 303 off their 40 overs with the loss of only two wickets.

White Fern Molly Penfold got the women off to an excellent start with the ball in hand, taking three quick wickets.

It was a short-lived innings, with the Llamas bowling out the visitors within 14 overs for only 45 runs.

Youngster Ayaan Lambat also took three wickets while Holly Lightbourne and Mansimran Kaur each took two.

The women recorded their first win comprehensively, coming out on top by 258 runs.
