Singh on Song

 

FTGDCA Round 4

By Ian Harley

 

Back into Two day mode and day one of round 4 saw Knox Gardens set Ferntree Gully 259 for victory. Navinder Singh (63) top scored for the Falcons with Jarrod Butcher also amongst the runs. Singh is now the Falcons leading run scorer this season. Lachlan Callaghan and Ryan Handley shared the bowling honours for the Blues. The Blues will have to bat well to win this one, but in the back of the Falcon’s minds will be their loss to Knoxfield in similar circumstances.

 

Josh Lee made his presence felt in his return to The Basin first XI after a stint in the seconds. Lee made 93 not out as The Bears amassed 6/249 against Johnson Park.  A late flourish may have seen  a century but with two balls remaining a single to the outfield denied him the chance. Ronnie Heskes, Danny Rundle and Joel Clarke all played cameos around Lee’s innings, whilst for the Sharks the bowlers didn’t have much joy. Johnson Park has yet to fire this season with the bat, while Vozzo and Heskes may have a say for the Bears with the ball.

 

At Carrington Park Monbulk batted the day with Justin Creed (61) and Shane Cosstick (53) doing most of the heavy lifting against Knoxfield. Scott "dont shoot the messenger" McKenzie and Zac Wilson took 4 wickets a piece for the Knights. Given thier batting form Knoxfield could well be in the box seat.

 

Upwey batted first at home against Belgrave and were bowled out for 159 before Belgrave finished the day 0/12. Mick Hewitt and Steven Moore were the best performed with the bat for the Tigers. Dinusha Fernando bagged 5 wickets and, assisted by Nathan Rowe, made sure the Magpies held the upper hand.

 

Mountain Gate swung momentum their way late on day 1 against Eildon Park. The Gators were bowled out for 169 on the back of Marshall Buntings 79 not out, but struck back at the end of the day to have the Panthers 2/10. Adrian Baltruschaitis toiled hard for the Panthers taking 4 wickets.
