Senior Team of the Week (Round 6)
Posted by Daine Vernon on Monday, 12 Dec 2016 at 8:29pm
A very memorable 2 weeks for the club with some outstanding performances across all grades in the 4 wins form 4 matches.

A number of new faces, two father son combo's and they are matched with some regulars who have had a fantastic start to the season. 

Here is the team for Round 6:

Brett Morrison: The newly married opening batsman no doubt ‘checked in’ to Wantirna Secondary where he helped himself to an afternoon of free scoring to help set up a massive total. Still believes he was robbed of a century when clean bowled on 99!

Rhys Marget: (wk) After an early scare with a controversial decision Rhys toyed with the fielders in the battle with the gators. Compiled 76 runs before departing and leaving son Jack to Ice the game.

Jack Marget: Enjoyed himself with both bat and ball after a poke to the eye the game before. Very economical with the ball in the first innings taking 3/25 off 19 overs and then backed up that effort with a 136 run opening partnership with Marget Snr. An unbeaten 77 saw him one run ahead of the old man and bragging rights for the week!

Hayden Morrison: Joined his father in the middle after the fall of the first wicket and the two of them had a day out. Compiled a very crisp 58 not out which included a fine 185 run father/son partnership.

Scott Christiansen: Making up for lost time after a few seasons out of the game Scott notched up his 2nd consecutive century in the 4ths great win. Higher honours surely beckon for this former club champion.

Matt Young: In a real purple patch of form at the moment. Once again saved the 1st XI with the bat getting the side first innings points with a hard hitting 36 and then gave the team a sniff of outright victory with a marvellous spell of drifting dippers taking 6/36 off 21 overs.

Tom Wylde: After a somewhat slow start to the season the new Wylde boy took 4 wickets to go with his 4 runs in the 4ths to help secure the win.

Zach Flintoff: The nickname ‘Brother of Tess’ is really started to get to young Zach as he tries to make a real name for himself in the 1st XI. Has found some good form with the pill taking another 3 wickets in the rout over the gators on day 1.

Daine Vernon: Another steady performance from the veteran off breaker. Helped put the clamps on in the 2nd XI shut down job at HV Jones Reserve. Took 2/28 off his 20 overs including 9 maidens.

Adam Wild: (c) Another masterful display by the club great and this time it was with both bat and ball. Ripped right through the opposition on day one taking 6/41 before getting the side over the line with the stick hitting 35* to avoid an ugly defeat. Ended up taking 9 wickets for the game and is back to his best.

Jack Deveson: WOW! After making himself available for just half the game in the 3rd XI he had to do the damage with the ball and boy o boy did he destroy! Taking career best figures of 6/37 in the first innings and then backed up that effort taking another 5/32 in the second innings. An incredible performance by an up and coming cricketer.


12th Man

Greg Crook: The Crookie monster hasn’t been seen around the club for some time but apparently is slowing picking up where he left off as a terrorising bowler with a real appetite for taking bags of wickets. Picked up a tidy 3/29 in the 4th XI and it’s great to see the spearhead back and firing.
