Dom­i­nant D’Arcy dig

Melville Times - - Looklocal -

MELVILLE is up against it af­ter con­ced­ing 322 runs on day 1 of its round 6 Premier Cricket clash with Willetton on Satur­day.

Af­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat, Willetton rarely missed a beat at Bur­ren­dah Re­serve.

D’Arcy Short an­chored the in­nings with 125 from 174 de­liv­er­ies, with more than half his runs scored in bound­aries.

Willetton’s num­ber 3 crunched 18 fours dur­ing his three-hour stay at the crease.

Kallen Bond and Will Rhodes con­tin­ued to frus­trate the Melville bowlers once Short was dis­missed, scor­ing 38 and 37 re­spec­tively late in the in­nings.

Melville’s Mark Turner was the pick of the bowlers with three wick­ets and a ter­rific run-out.

Among his haul of 3-53 was opener Iszak Mi­len­tis and lower-or­der bats­men Prad Gu­naratne and Bren­nan Wil­son.
