On Jan 9th 2013, we played a friendly Twenty20 match against the Hawks from Monash Uni Clayton.

The Hawks won the toss and batted first, amassing 6/146 from their 20 overs, despite a slow start of 3/64 off the first 10. South African Leg-Spinner Matt Hawken took 2/23 (4) opening the bowling, and 18yo Off-Spinner Chris West took 2/28 (4).

Chasing 146 was made harder when we lost 4/30 including Skipper Jamie Reddish (11). Super Sub Shikhar Gupta (25) and Chris West (27) had a 44 run partnership to steady the ship, but with the run-rate rising, risks needed to be taken, and we were eventually dismissed for 92 in the last over.
