Ballarat Cricket Association Roundup

The Ballarat Cricket Association has come back from Melbourne Country Week with mixed results. They have finished suitably to be elevated to the Provincial Competition next, which was the aim. They’d also sought to win their Division 2 final, however lost on Friday to Bendigo.

In this week’s results, both of the top of the ladder teams lost. Mt Clear in what ended up a very close result to Darley at home and East Ballarat, also at home, went down to Golden Point.

Darley was well lead by the skipper, Michael Alexander, in a partnership with UK import, Ricky Moore. The pair added 157 for the second wicket, Alexander scoring 86 and Moore 105. There was a batting collapse, which saw 7 wickets for 15 runs! Before Barnes hit the winning runs.

East Ballarat, also, had a big partnership, with their UK import, Lewis Hodgins scoring 87, along with Brad Whittaker making 92. But it wasn’t enough, East losing their last 7 wickets for 31, setting up a good win for Golden Point.

At the Northern Oval, North used the day for batting practice. They’d already secured the 6 points on day 1. Mick Nolan scored a very good 189 against a weakened Wendouree attack. He was joined just prior to tea needing 4 for his century by Adam Eddy. The pair then went on to add 152 for the 9th wicket. North finished on a record 445 from 112 overs, a tough day in the field for Wendouree.

At Napoleons, Buninyong took the 6 points in a low scoring affair. Then at the Western oval Brown Hill secured 6 points against Ballarat Redan.

Just one more Home and Away game next week prior to finals in March.
