Back-to-back for Combine in Grampians T20

Swifts-Great Western retained Grampians Cricket Association’s Henry Gunstone T20 Cup, defeating Buangor-Tatyoon on Sunday at Stawell’s Central Park.

Finishing first and second respectively in preliminary rounds, the Combine and Hawks fronted up on a near-perfect ground in great cricket weather for the cup decider.

Batting first, the Combine scored 8-101 with contributions from Brady Miller, 26, Matt Heffer, 22, and Jack Cann, 18, with Liam Baker and Michael Harricks the best of the bowlers with two wickets each.

In reply, the Hawks lost regular wickets at the top and could not establish any partnerships, to finish on 6-64. Rick Peters, Heffer and Tom Fitzgerald each took two wickets.

The day before, matches went as expected, with Youth Club accounting for Chalambar, the Hawks downing Pomonal and the Combine cruising to victory over Halls Gap. 

In double-header games, it was the Hawks over the Clubbers and Chalambar accounting for Pomonal.

This Saturday, Grampians cricket games return to one-day 40-overs-a-side format, with the main match being at Central Park where Swifts-Great Western hosts Buangor-Tatyoon.

Ironically, this will be the third time the sides have met in the past three weeks.

The results so far stand at a win apiece, so each team will be keen to post a win to establish the one and two position on the ladder.

Equally important for other teams’ prospects are matches between Chalambar and Pomonal at Ararat’s Alexandra Oval and Halls Gap playing Youth Club at Halls Gap.

With the change in format, batsmen will have the opportunity for longer innings and teams larger scores.

This week: One-day 40-over-a-side games, Swifts-Great Western v Buangor-Tatyoon at Central Park, Halls Gap v Youth Club, Chalambar v Pomonal at Ararat’s Alexandra Oval.

Last week: Henry Gunstone T20 Cup final, Swifts-Great Western 8-101 d Buangor-Tatyoon 8-64.

Ladder: Swifts-Great Western 18 points, Buangor-Tatyoon 15, Youth Club 6, Halls Gap 6, Chalambar 6, Pomonal 0.
