Terry, Turner at top of game

Melville Times - - Sport -

MELVILLE Cricket Club has pro­duced a su­perb 288 runs on the first day of ac­tion on Satur­day, thanks to an im­pres­sive dis­play of bat­ting by top-or­der bats­men Sean Terry and Brad Turner at Ab­bett Park.

Af­ter win­ning the toss and elect­ing to bat, Melville jumped out of the blocks.

Al­though the loss of Blake Reed at 1-22 was not ideal, Terry and Turner de­cid­edly turned the match in the Storm’s favour.

The pair eked out a hard-fought 104-run sec­ond­wicket part­ner­ship be­fore Turner was dis­missed for 63 at 2-126.

Fraser Hay fell next and Terry fol­lowed soon af­ter, end­ing his in­nings with a well-de­served 73.

At 4-162, the loss of Terry proved to be calami­tous for Melville, as the Storm strug­gled for con­sis­tency through­out the last half of their in­nings.

Lance Mor­ris and Liam Stevens be­gan to get on top for Mid­land Guild­ford, as the pair helped rip through the tail.

Al­though there were no note­wor­thy part­ner­ships late in the in­nings, Melville still man­aged to end the day with a more than de­fend­able to­tal of 288.
