Team of the Round
Posted by Nathan Montague on Thursday, 17 Oct 2019 at 1:48pm

Joe Morsello:

Giuseppe picked up where he left off last season with another best on ground performance for the 1st XI. In early trouble Joey carried the stick to amass an incredible 135 not out and not happy with that rolled the arm over to pick up an important pole late in the innings.

Scott Christiansen:

Playing his usual hand in the 4ís hitting a swashbuckling 44 whilst being economical with the pill. More of the same to come from the evergreen machine.

Lachie Stuckey

The very well groomed brother of Spence opened up for the 3rd XI and also on the opposition plundering a typically classy 45 runs to help get the team off to a very good start. He was over the moon to be back playing cricket again!

Adam Wylde

The most reliable Wylde, Adam 'knockered' away at the opportunity to bat up the order in the 1st XI (at Knox Gardens). A supremely smooth and elegant innings was only disrupted by a very ill timed run and a chance to load up for a big haul of runs. A polished 45 helped his team set up the winning total.

Hayden Morrison: 

The departure of pops has left the door open for Jnr dosman and he took full advantage of his chance in the 2nd XI being the rock throughout the innings. Sliced and diced his way to a delicious 38.

Callum OíConnor: 

Newly appointed 2nd XI vice captain was thrown into skipper his first ever game on short notice and impressed well! With a shocking new haircut and even worse piece of fresh ink Carlton opened up and slayed  a few cherries to the fence in quick fashion to set up the winning total.

Ryan Metherell: 

A welcome return greeted with a cheesy grin and a well compiled 40 run opening effort from Ryan. Canít remember what he did in the field but he would of had a few zingers from the outer!

Scott McInerney: 

The impressive young seamer had the feaver for wickets on day 2 as he bowled for the most part of the afternoon collecting 5 poles but might have to settle for the 2 votes.

Travis Mulder

Playing up to 15 grades below his talent suggests the old Fox was his typical self. Took all the 4th XIís wickets while slapping around a few 14 year old's in a timeless performance. Wouldnít be surprised to see the great man dominate this space!!

Nixon Adcock: 

Picked in the 2nd XI mainly for his old man to keep score Nixon proved he can bowl, and quite well. Bowling at his unaccustomed time without the new rock Nix spun the 2ís to victory running through the middle to lower order and taking the final wickets with only a handful of runs remaining! 4/29 only the start for the sheik of tweak!

Brett Morrison:

After prematurely retiring for almost a week Pops bounded into the 3rd XI with a cocky grin before trudging off soon after making nothing. He then turned his luck with an inspired spell of slow/very slow swing bowling claiming the tidy figures of 2/19 off 14 which we will never hear the end of...
