Eastern Hill skipper provides the highlight of Saturday's Seymour District Cricket Association competition.CHALPAT SONTI February 27, 2014 4:39am
Two dominant batting performances were the standout highlights of the first day of the latest round of Seymour District Cricket Association A-grade competition — and one in particular has been a while coming, but worth it when it did arrive.
Eastern Hill skipper Ricky Misiti and Tim Rudd-Schmidt came together with their side in all sorts of trouble at 7-92 against Tallarook and a rampant Jason Tarran.
Few could have imagined what would happen next as Misiti blasted 182 off 184 balls and the pair added 194 in 269 balls.
Misiti’s knock is Eastern Hill’s third highest score in its history, behind Rick Hager’s legendary 211 against Avenel in a grand final and Matt O’Sullivan (185).
At Avenel, Broadford opener Jake Zerella also picked a good time to strike form, making 100 to put his side in the driver’s seat and frontrunners Nagambie and Kilmore are chasing small targets and should be confident of taking the points on the second day.
