His side scored a thrilling twow­icket win on Satur­day against Monash Tigers, who are cap­tained by Katan­dra prod­uct Daniel Sar­tori.

The Tigers made 9-183 bat­ting first, with Sar­tori mak­ing 17 open­ing the bat­ting, while Win­terIrv­ing was eco­nom­i­cal with fig­ures of 2-30.

Footscray got home in the 48th over for its third win of the sea­son, while the Tigers sit in 10th on the lad­der with two vic­to­ries.

On Sun­day, Win­ter-Irv­ing played a mas­sive role in the Pre­mier All-Stars team in their game with the Cricket Vic­to­ria Academy.

Win­ter-Irv­ing, who is more renowned as a bowler, smashed an un­beaten 61 to help the All Stars to 7-301 from 96 overs.

Mean­while, for­mer Old Stu­dents and Kar­ramo­mus player James Billing­ton top scored for Prahran in a four-wicket win against Cam­ber­well Mag­pies on Satur­day.

In sec­ond grade, Cen­tral Park-St Bren­dan’s pre­mier­ship star Tyler Larkin was dis­missed for 17 play­ing for Geelong, but his team still com­fort­ably de­feated Green­vale Kan­ga­roos.

Larkin has been a stand-in cap­tain of Geelong’s sec­ond grade team and has made a good start to the sea­son, av­er­ag­ing 44.8 from four games, with two half­cen­turies.
