Top order in cruise control
Pingelly-Noonebin’s tight bowling and the growing influence of their top order batsmen Tom Blechynden and Tyson Kirk easily got them over the line against KukerinDumbleyung.
Kukerin-Dumbleyung’s top order collapsed early at the hands of Jordan Hughes.
Matt Gilfellon was sent back to the changing rooms at the end of the third over, and by the end of the ninth over Hughes had dismissed Lee Smith (3) and Peter Joyce for a duck.
Kalan Joyce was the home side’s highest scorer with 51 runs, he pushed his side’s total to 8-107 before being dismissed in the last over by Brett Blechynden — who collected two wickets for the match.
Despite losing David Hull early (0), bowled by Kalan Joyce, Pingelly’s chase of 108 runs was never in doubt.
Kirk and Tom Blechynden backed-up strong performances from last week to collect their side’s points. Both were unbeaten on 54, with Tom Blechynden collecting his first half century of the season and the win after blasting a six on the last ball of the 30th over.
Pingelly-Noonebin finished on 1-113.
