Goulburn Murray Cricket has declared the C grade grand final a no result pending a re-match.

Saturday’s final between Echuca and Girgarre was interrupted by bad light and rain which forced umpires Glenn Griffiths and Daryl Mawson to revise Girgarre’s first innings total of 146.

Echuca finished the 16th over at 2/75 and - according to GMC rule 21.h.(i) - did not reach the revised total of 87.

Echuca was handed the win based on an incorrect calculation.

The GMC board met last night after an appeal was lodged by Girgarre captain Wayne Cowley.

Despite signing the umpire’s card at the close of play, Cowley argued the umpires’ ruling was unjustified and proceeded to rectify the issue via the MyCricket website on Saturday night.

A re-match may be scheduled pending player availability, otherwise the ruling will stand.

A final decision will be made by 5pm today.
