Some teasing scenarios in Seymour District Cricket Association A-grade competition.By Chalpat Sonti
The last crucial pre-Christmas round of Seymour District Cricket Association A-grade two-day competition has thrown up some teasing prospects for the second day.
Broadford clearly looks to have the upper hand in the first-innings battle at Chittick Park, rolling co-leaders Seymour cheaply in the top-of-the-table clash then scoring freely to be just 16 runs behind at the end of the first day.
Nagambie has a battle in store after losing two early wickets in pursuit of a disappointing Kilmore total in the game between third and fourth, while the game between last season’s grand finalists Tallarook and Alexandra is probably slightly in favour of the home side at Leckie Park.
Avenel will face a stern chase against a fired-up Eastern Hill which was inspired by some quick and slower scoring at the same time to post its best total this season.
Meanwhile, lower-grade cricket again threw up some highlights, none more so than in Puckapunyal’s easy win over Seymour.
Cameron Carrick made an undefeated 114 for the hosts then Andrew Harvey produced perhaps the figures of the season, taking 7-9 off 8.3 overs (with five maidens).
