Saints move to top spot
Date of Event Victorian Premier Cricket: Sat Oct 19, 2019 9:29PM
Blues' skipper Evan Gulbis goes big today

Afternoon showers interferred with several matches in Victorian Premier Cricket today. However, with the assistance of DLS, seven results were achieved - the two games with a "no result" were at Windy Hill and Merv Hughes Oval.

 

 

 


Greenvale Kangaroos posted a competitive 8/242 against Kingston Hawthorn at Greenvale. Ex-Sri Lankan Test batsman Kaushal Silva was the star with a brilliant 133, scored off just 123 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes. It was Silva's debut for the Kangaroos, having previously played three games with Dandenong in 2014-15. But, in an exciting run-chase, Kingston Hawthorn overhauled the Kangaroos' target, with a six to win the game from the third-last ball of the match. The winning hit was made by Ruwan Perera, who faced one ball and ended the game with a strike-rate of 600, but the hard work was done by Shorye Chopra, whose maiden Premier century (101) was scored off 111 balls and contained 11 fours.

 

 

 


Carlton made short work of Monash Tigers at Princes Park. The Tigers, at one stage, were 6/46 with Cam Stevenson (5/24) making a mess of the top order. Although Dan Christian (43), together with Zac Sleeman (14*) and Wil Parker (22), who added 40 for the tenth wicket, got the final total up to 136, it was never going to be enough as Brayden Stepien (57*) and skipper Evan Gulbis (50) added 86 for the third wicket as the Blues cruised to victory at 3/137 with more than 22 overs to spare.

 

 


Melbourne, Prahran and Melbourne Uni all posted handy totals batting first. Matthew Brown (129) registered his seventh Premier century as the Demons tallied 6/265 against the Cats at the Albert Ground. Geelong's brave reply ended seven runs shy of victory. Skipper Eamonn Vines (69) top-scored.

 

 

 


Prahran's 250 against Footscray was largely due to James Billington's 80. The Bulldogs' reply was severely curtailed by rain and finally ended at 6/68 after just 22 overs - 25 overs being required to constitute a match.

 

 

 


Melbourne Uni posted 4/247 against Frankston Peninsula at Uni. Fergus McKenna (75), Alex Gregory (62) and Andrej Yaksender (44*) top-scored. Frankston Peninsula's reply ended at 4/129 after 30 overs, falling short of the par required under DLS.

 

 

 


Essendon was unfortunate, after rolling Casey-South Melbourne for 134 and then not having the opportunity to chase. Showers moved in and stayed at the innings break, with the match eventually called off before the Bombers chase could commence.

 

 


In other matches St Kilda bowled out Camberwell Magpies at CSG to win by 30 runs, Fitzroy Doncaster beat Ringwood under the DLS Method at Russell Lucas Oval.

 

 

 


Round 4 (for 1sts & 2nds) will be completed tomorrow.
