Brooks rips up Perth with the ball

— 10 February 2014

Jack Brooks continued his rich vein of form taking four wickets for 24 runs from 10.5 overs in a low-scoring opening day for Willetton Dragons against Melville.

  • In a top of the table clash in the WACA A Grade competition, Willetton took the early advantage bowling out table-toppers Melville for 103. In reply Willetton were 92-7 in a topsy-turvy affair. The final day, which starts next Saturday, will be an intriguing finale.

    Moin Ashraf, playing for East Torrens B Grade helped his Adelaide-based side to victory over Glenelg. Moin, who only arrived in Adelaide two weeks ago, bowled with control only conceding 48 runs from a 14-over spell. Glenelg were all out for 183 and Torrens showed their quality with the bat winning the match by eight wickets.

    Ben Coad, who is currently training with the Darren Lehmann Academy, was in action for his side Adelaide Buffaloes. Having to only field for 30 overs in 42c heat, the Buffaloes chased down the 156 runs set by Southern Districts and managed to accumulate 222-6. With the game running out of time, they sent Southern Districts in for their second innings and had them 60-6 with Coad showing his burning potential with 1 for 8 from 5 overs.

  • In Victoria Dan Hodgson took two catches with the gloves for his side Mount Waverley. They bowled out second in the table Oakleigh for 195. Hodgson, whose side are hovering just above the bottom two, need a good day with the bat next Saturday aiming to pull off a much needed victory.

    In Sydney it was a disappointing day for Jack Leaning and his Sutherland side. After being bowled out for 98 the previous week, opposition Easts declared on 274-8. In Sutherland’s second innings they finished on 154-6 with Leaning not troubling the scorers. Sutherland are just below half-way in the league table and will need to string a number of wins together if they are to break into the top six play-offs. They are currently seven points behind sixth place going into the latter part of the season.

    In Johannesburg, seamer James Wainman, playing for Wanderers, bowled 8 overs and took 1 for 23 in his sides winning draw against Medal Paints Marks Park. His side batted first and scored 252 from 60 overs. Marks Park finished on 174-9 to earn a draw. Wanderers remain top of the table in the local competition.

    Finally, New Zealand international Kane Williamson helped his side to a historic victory over India in their first Test Match at Eden Park over the weekend. The Black Caps managed a 40-run victory on a tense fourth day, when they managed to bowl out India for 202. In the first innings Williamson showed his class with a 113 – his fifth Test career century. They now head to the Basin Reserve, Wellington on Thursday aiming to secure a series victory.
