Could we finally see maximum points in the SDCA two-day competition?By Chalpat Sonti
It’s been tantalisingly close all season but might the Seymour District Cricket Association A-grade two-day competition finally see an outright victory this weekend?
Fittingly, but surprisingly on form this season, reigning premier Tallarook is in the box seat to press for the maximum points against fellow cellar dweller Eastern Hill.
An outright would see Tallarook almost back in finals contention, and with the competition’s star batsman Paul Arandt back in the side and at the crease, it is a distinct possibility.
Elsewhere Nagambie look favoured to cement second spot after running through third-placed Alexandra and surviving some late scares to be in the box seat for first-innings points and Seymour have some work to do against an under-strength Avenel bowling attack if the Chittick Park side is to keep it’s finals hopes alive.
Ladder leader Broadford will have to bat better than it has most of this season if it is to deliver a blow to arch-rival Kilmore’s finals hopes.
