Hawthorn Monash secured their first win in almost twelve months with a three-wicket victory over Greenvale in round three of the Bartercard Victorian Premier League cricket season. The Hawks finished on 7-213 to overtake Greenvale's 8-212 in the second last over of the day thanks largely to a fine century from Kumar Sarna (above).
Sarna compiled 107 and was supported by opener Grant Westgarth (35) and keeper Locky Inglis (36) to steer the Hawks home. The Hawks won the toss and sent the home side in on a slow wicket at Greenvale Reserve.
