Kyabram Cricket Club won its second piece of silverware since entering the Cricket Shepparton competition last year when its under-16 side won the Twenty20 final on Monday evening.

Kyabram scored 6-140 in its 20 overs to defeat Mooroopna’s score of 6-118.

In this version of cricket, batsmen have to retire if they score 20 runs and Kyabram’s Cade Mueller started things for the young Redbacks with a quick 21 retired.

Aaron Hatch, Kyle Fitzgerald and Makenzie Ryan also all reached 20 or more to give the Kyabram scorecard a solid look.

Mooroopna’s reply got off to the worst possible start when Redbacks opening bowler Luke Donnell had the opening batsman caught behind off the first ball of the innings.

Donnell took two wickets and managed to move the ball away from the bat consistently to trouble each of the Mooroopna batsman who faced him.

Stevie Phillips also claimed two wickets for the Redbacks.

Kyabram’s under-14 side came up just short of retaining the trophy won in the same age category last year.

Kyabram scored 6-104 in its 20 overs and the match looked in the balance until the Kialla batsmen increased their scoring rate midway through the innings to move ahead of the required run rate.

Kialla eventually reached the 105 runs required with 10 balls to spare.

One of the highlights of the match was Mitch Jarrett’s direct hit run out, for which he picked up an award.
