Seabrook a star for Crabs

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

Lach­lan Seabrook started the Twenty20 cricket com­pe­ti­tion off with a bang, launch­ing an un­beaten 124 to put Pegs Creek Crabs on the right foot against Rec Club at the week­end.

Opt­ing to bat first, the Crabs lost Grant But­ler on the first ball.

Seabrook came in and, with skip­per Daniel Carse (50), built a 100run part­ner­ship. Carse de­parted with the score at 112, but Seabrook guided the home side to 5-217.

Fac­ing a daunt­ing tar­get, the Rec Club failed to fire as they were bun­dled out for 84 in­side 14 overs.

Sam O’Hare (4-8) found his length from the start, while But­ler snared three wick­ets.

At Mil­lars Well, tight bowl­ing and field­ing from Bayn­ton Lions kept Kar­ratha Kats to 74 from their 20 overs. Lo­k­endra Ranawat (3-11) sent three Kats play­ers back with­out trou­bling the scor­ers.

In re­sponse, the Lions bats­men slugged it out on a slow Mil­lars Well out­field to chase the tar­get down with one over to spare.

Dayanand Gawade led the charge with 26.

Wick­ham first drop Lach­lan Smith took a lik­ing to Windy Ridge, belt­ing 100 as he helped his side to 5-149 af­ter los­ing three early wick­ets. The Tav­ern­ers lost Adrian D’Cuhna early and strug­gled to form any part­ner­ships from there.

Ni­cholas Lewis starred with the ball, claim­ing a five-wicket haul in just three overs.
