Sons of former Black Caps do fathers proud

You know you are getting old when a Cumming, a Pringle and a Bond all feature but it does not involve a Craig, a Chris or a Shane.

Jacob Cumming, Tim Pringle and Ryan Bond all had days to remember on the cricket field.

Cumming scored an undefeated century to guide the New Zealand Development side to a seven-wicket win against Central Districts A in Napier yesterday.

Cumming, who plays for Otago A and is the son of former New Zealand opener Craig, stroked 133 from 216 deliveries and combined in a 172-run opening stand with Matthew Boyle (88).

The 18-year-old scored 59 in the first innings of the three-day game as well.

Another famous surname featured strongly during that match.

Left arm spinner Tim Pringle, son of former Black Cap Chris Pringle, took six for 50 for the New Zealand Development side in the second innings to help set up the win.

Meanwhile, Ryan Bond (13) scored 44 from 30 balls and took two for three for the unbeaten Christchurch Black on day three of the South Island primary schools tournament in Alexandra yesterday.

Christchurch Red and Canterbury Country White also remain unbeaten after six games.

 - Otago was well-beaten by Central Districts in its final match at the women’s under-19 tournament in Canterbury yesterday.

Otago posted 123 for nine from its 20 overs. Isy Parry and Harriett Cuttance top scored with 24 apiece.

But Central cruised to a five-wicket win with more than three overs to spare. Chloe Deerness shone with the ball for Otago again, picking up a couple of wickets to complete a strong tournament.

Otago won two of its six games and finished in fourth place.

 - George Worker scored 132 from 142 balls and Lockie Ferguson took six for 34 to help secure a 47-run win for the Auckland Aces against Northern Districts in a one-dayer in Auckland yesterday.

The Aces posted 303 for seven and reduced the visitors to 37 for four. Coilin de Grandhomme thumped 126 from 104 balls but Northern was dismissed for 256 in the 40th over.
