Top or­der in cruise con­trol

Narrogin Observer - - SPORTS - Michael Traill

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.
