Demons and Tigers take points already
Date of Event Victorian Premier Cricket: Sat Feb 29, 2020 8:22PM
Brett Forsyth scored his 17th Premier century today for the Panthers

 

 

The day began with some light drizzle early, but this cleared away as the sun burnt off the cloud into a glorious afternoon. The Demons, Tigers and True Blues are all in strong positions after today's play, but anything can happen on the last day of the home and away season!

 



Essendon could well find itself in the hotseat next week, having already been headed by Monash Tigers in an upset at Windy Hill. After compiling a modest 176 (Matt Doric 5/49), the Tigers then rolled the Bombers for just 85 before finishing on 1/9 in their second innings, an overall lead of exactly 100. Should Prahran and Dandenong both win next week, the Bombers are in danger of dropping out of the eight. For the Tigers Matt Berryman (5/30) and Mitch Perry (3/20) did most of the damage.

 



Prahran is in a strong position against Geelong at the GCG. The Cats scored 217, with the True Blues already 0/117 at the close. Skipper Jake Hancock (63*) and Adam Bull (53*) resume next Saturday, needing 101 to win with all ten wickets in hand. Earlier Prahran pacemen Andrew Perrin (4/59) and Matt Wilcox (4/45) did best with the ball.

 



Dandenong reached 8/277 against St Kilda at Shepley Oval, with opener Brett Forsyth scoring a fine 126. The reigning Ryder Medallist has now scored 577 at 33.94 this season, perhaps not as impressive as last season, but he will poll well again. It was his 17th century for the Panthers.

 



Melbourne's Blake Thomson scored an unbeaten 101 after Frankston Peninsula was bowled out for 99 at the Butler Oval. Leggie Kyle Williamson had the outstanding figures of 5/24 from 16.5 overs and Kieran Elliott took 3/14. The Demons were 2/173 in reply at stumps, already 74 in front. It was Thomson's fourth Premier century, he faced 138 balls and he hit 17 fours and a six.


 



At Greenvale Liam Banthorpe rescued the Lions, who ended up with 248. Banthorpe came to the crease at a shaky 4/24. He added 65 with Shivakkumar (33) for the fifth wicket, 60 with skipper Ejaaz Alavi (20) for the sixth wicket and 67 with Griffiths (41) for the eighth wicket. It was Banthorpe's maiden Premier century after 11 fifties; his innings occupied 227 balls and he hit 7 fours and a six. Kangaroos' paceman Sean McNicholl (5/75) continued to impress, taking his season figures to 36 wickets at 22.36.

 



In other games, Camberwell Magpies (8/223 dec) were slightly in front of Ringwood (5/80) at Ringwood, Footscray (161) similarly against Carlton (7/93) at Carlton, Melbourne Uni (0/16) should overhaul Casey-SM's 211 (Chris Benedek 76*) at Uni and Northcote (304 - Max O'Sullivan 80, Blayde Baker 75*, Josh Sundberg 59) should coast to a win over Kingston Hawthorn at the Walter Galt Oval.
