Senior Team of the Week (Round 10)
Posted by Daine Vernon on Wednesday, 8 Feb 2017 at 1:57pm
A few standouts and some even performances throughout.

Here is the team:

Ben McLean: Leading the way in the 3rd XI at the top of the order. Notched up his eighth century for the club and looks a certainty to claim his second association batting average. (No pressure).

Brett Morrison: Lost his old mate before he had a chance to check in at Eildon Park and did the majority of the scoring for the 2nd XI smashing his way to his highest score at the club of 137 not out.

Deepak Puri: In a real purple patch of form in the 4ís and we can only attribute this to his absence from training since Christmas. Got the side off to a good start yet again, puri genius...

Josh Curnow: Crawled off his death bed to make his long awaited return and didnít disappoint. Slashed and nicked his way to his customary score of about 40 odd runs before slashing one too many times. Took a wicket in his short spell and will be better off for the run.

Josh Gregory: Boof has found some form with the willow since the break and ironically it seems the only thing slowing him down is his running between the wickets.

Callum OíConnor: Haunted by the number 14 so far this season the young man came in to bat under some pressure against the top side and cautiously made his way to his highest score for the season which then included some breathtaking strokes towards the end in a partnership of 157 with Morro.

Matt Young: Enjoying his best season with the wood in the 1st XI so far this season. Once again batting in the lower order rescued the side when in trouble to post a decent score. Must be some friction with good mate and skipper Butch as he struggles to make his way up the order.

Jason Buljubasic: Managed to compose himself after an attack from a rainbow serpent over the Australia Day weekend to churn out another half century in the 4ís. Seems to be a hitting them well recently and will be looking to take that form into Milo In2Cricket next season.

Ashley Thompson: Demanded to take the new pill and after little resistance marked his 4 step run up and was into it. Was a star with the ball in the 2nd XI taking two early wickets before cleaning up the tail. Finished with superb figures of 4/27 from 11 overs.

Ashley Hawkes: Slapped some late order runs with the rest of the tail in the 3ís to help set up the mammoth total of 346. Opened the next week and was annoyed to only bowl 19 overs in a free scoring innings from the opposition where Ash finished with 3/81.

Nixon Adcock: Given a chance to perform and he didnít let his side down. Bowled magnificently well with his full bag a tricks on display and was rewarded with an ultra-attacking field. Picked up 3/12 off 8 overs in his best performance in the 2nd XI.


12th Man:

Hayden Morrison: Demanded to grab a spot in the team after his OK performance in the 3rd XI and so he finds himself carrying the drinks. Will need to do a bit more if he ever wants to find himself in this illustrious group of stars again!
