TC Local Cricket Wrap 9/12/17
Rain last week meant cricketers were primed and ready to come out hard this weekend too make up for lost time.
In the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association two day games became one day games making the only 100 of the weekend even more important. That went to H.Wanniarchchige who made 101 for Vermont South Cricket Club. There were two six wicket hauls with S.Jayawardene (Heatherdale Cricket Club) and D.Breaden (Kerrimuir United Cricket Club) the stars there. Breaden’s 6 wicket haul also included a hat-trick. Three other bowlers managed to take five wickets- J.Gillam (Koonung Heights Cricket Club), L.Pickering (Vermont Cricket Club), H.Barnard (Blackburn South Cricket Club)
The Ferntree Gully & District Cricket Association missed out on completing a game last weekend, but started its round of two day fixtures with fresh aplomb. Especially The Basin Cricket Club‘s J.Turcinovic who massed 134*. With the ball another Bear, N.Freeling took 6/26 down the grades, as did Lysterfield Cricket Club‘s C.Cosstick finishing with 6/37. Upwey Tecoma Cricket Club‘s Cam Wheeler took another 5 wicket haul and B.Ferguson grabbed 5/43 for his Mountain Gate Cricket Club side.
Only the two bowling performances worthy of a Michelle this weekend in the Yarra Valley Cricket Scores with Healesville Cricket Club‘s D.Fry (5/37) and Seville Cricket Club‘s D.Knight (6/25) the performers. Whilst in the Ringwood and District Cricket AssociationS.Findlay whacked another 110 for Croydon North Cricket Club and J.Mitchell took 5/19 for Bayswater Park Cricket Club.
