Cosgrove and Pollard lead Redbacks to 196
Mark Cosgrove hit a quick fire 42 and Kieron Pollard added 45 to help the West End Redbacks to a total of 196 in tonight's KFC Big Bash game at the WACA against the Retravision Warriors.
Warriors captain Adam Voges won the toss and decided to field first looking to chase a small total under the floodlights later in the evening.
The Redbacks got off to a good start with Daniel Harris and Graham Manou enjoying a opening partnership of 27 before Manou was caught by Shaun Marsh off the bowling of Brad Knowles,
Tom Cooper (1) was run out 6 balls later by David Bandy to leave the Redbacks 29-2 before Cosgrove entered the contest. His partnership of 48 with Harris put the Redbacks on top.
Despite losing Harris and Shahid Afridi for a first ball duck the Redbacks continued to score with ease with Kieron Pollard (45) and Cameron Borgas (34) helping the Redbacks reach 196-6.
