“Hilton goes horizontal”: Hilton Cartwright grabs startling boundary catch to dismiss Moises Henriques in Marsh Cup final
Hilton Cartwright: The batter from Western Australia put on display a game-changing fielding effort at the Junction Oval today.
Western Australia batter Hilton Cartwright put on display a title-winning performance by virtue of a startling boundary catch to dismiss New South Wales captain Moises Henriques in the final match of Marsh Cup 2021-22 in Melbourne.
It all happened in the last few overs of the match when Henriques lost out on patience only to step out to hit part-time spinner D’Arcy Short down the ground. While Henriques made good contact with the ball, he was a tad bit unfortunate to become a victim of a game-changing fielding display
Running towards his left from long-on, Henriques dived full length to catch a travelling ball. Completely airborne while completing the catch, Cartwright dismissing Henriques all but sealed the match for his team.
Needing 22 runs to win in six overs with only a couple of wickets in hand, Henriques’ shot selection has it in it to be debatable. However, one has to credit Cartwright for not letting a daunting but title-winning catching opportunity go away.
While a 226-run target seemed to be achievable at the Junction Oval, defending champions New South Wales ended up with 207/10 in 46.3 overs. While Henriques held one end with his 43 (75), New South Wales remained alive in the chase on the back of impact-generating contributions from Daniel Sams (42) and Ben Dwarshuis (31*).
Western Australia fast bowler Andrew Tye won the match award for his match-winning bowling figures of 8-0-30-4. Pacer Aaron Hardie, who himself affected a stunning caught and bowled earlier in the day, dismissed three batters. In addition to Short, Jhye Richardson and Matthew Short picked a wicket apiece on Friday.
