Prahran move to top of the ladder after win over Carlton.

on . Posted in Blog

Prahran have overtaken Carlton as the Bartercard Premier League leaders after beating the Blues in a low scoring T20 clash at Toorak Park in round eleven. The True Blues did it the hard way eventually edging past Carlton’s score of 77 with eight balls to spare and two wickets in hand.

Carlton skipper, Tim Welsford, won the toss and elected to bat first on what looked a flat wicket. A short boundary to the eastern side of the ground would have had batsmen licking their lips; however the regularity of wickets tumbling provided little opportunity for lusty hitting during the match.

State and national all-rounder, Clint McKay (above), has guided Essendon to a strong win over Fitzroy-Doncaster in round seven of the Bartercard Victorian Premier League at Schramms Reserve in Doncaster. McKay came to the wicket with the Bombers in trouble at 6-165, still 87 runs in arrears of the Lions 252, but a 77-run partnership with Nishal Perera steered the Bombers to within 11 runs of victory.

McKay eventually fell for 71 off just 66 deliveries including nine boundaries and three sixes; Perera seeing them home with a boundary of Chris Moore in the eighty-second over after some cautious batting with tail-ender James Damjanovski.
