The only way is up for Centurions
JOONDALUP IN BOX SEAT
JOONDALUP will be hoping a win against Bayswater-Morley this weekend kick-starts its ascent from the bottom of the WA Premier Cricket table.
The Centurions are in a promising position against the Bears at 1-58 chasing 172 in the twoday contest at Iluka.
WA rookie Clint Hinchliffe (26) and Andrew South (23) will take to the crease when play resumes.
Joondalup opener Garrick Morgan was dismissed for six.
A 91 from Bayswater-Morley first drop Jake Lewis was all that saved the visitors from embarrassment with the side returning five ducks on day one.
Josh Inglis (3-59) and Harry Larmett (3-27) were best of the bowlers.
Meanwhile, former Test quick Mitchell Johnson has not been ruled out of Wanneroo’s T20 clash against Subiaco Floreat at Floreat Park on Sunday. Coach Joel Charles said Johnson would make the call at training tonight.
The Roos are unbeaten at the top of the table from two games in the Premier T20 Group B.
Joondalup will look to win its second game when it faces Claremont at Iluka.
Former Australian Test bowler Mitchell Johnson may yet turn out for Wanneroo.
