This weekend saw the first week of a 2-dayer across the MCC.

The 1s traveled to South Belgrave in a top of the table clash and bowled them out for 153.

Duncan Maher and Aaron Powell the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets each.

0/29 at the close of day is a bright start in chasing the total down.

The 2s are in a commanding position also against South Belgrave, posting 331 in there 80 overs.

Coach Kyle Snyman batted brilliantly but unfortunately fell just short of a ton to be out for 98.

The 3s are fighting hard and quick wickets will change the game, while the 4s are in a commanding position heading into week two, with M. Adams 51*.

Great results across the juniors, with our under 16s and 12s having awesome wins.

Congratulations to Will Meyer 66* and Will Blenkiron 34* in the 16s for setting the foundation with the bat in a winning total of 205.

Our fast 9s and super 7s are having a great time playing some cricket with their mates.

Great to see!
