There were some standout performers with both bat and ball in round seven of the NSW Premier Cricket season.
With the bat it was Quinn Passlow who led the charge with an impressive 142 out of Campbelltown-Camden’s total of 241 in its Fifth Grade clash against Hawkesbury at Benson’s Lane. Even despite Passlow’s heroics, his side still fell short losing by 11-runs chasing 253 for victory. It was Passlow’s first century for the season.
Nic Badings scored 123 in Second grade for Northern District against Western Suburbs at Pratten Park. It was Badings second consecutive century after scoring 102 not out in Third Grade against Penrith last match. His innings of 123 helped Northern District to 8-354 declared as they recorded a first innings win by dismissing Western Suburbs for just 119.
Not to be forgotten about were the bowlers and in particular Randwick Petersham’s Fifth Grade bowler Nigil Singh. After posting just 164 with the bat, Randwick Petersham was able to collect first innings points by dismissing UNSW for a paltry 79. Singh was the destroyer with amazing figures of 7-36 from 21 overs with six maidens. He went on to collect a further two wickets in the second innings as they pushed for an outright victory. Singh has had a marvellous season in Fifth Grade this season collecting 31 wickets at an average of 11.6 and a strike rate of 26.
Mark Frei of the Sydney Cricket Club finished with quite remarkable figures as his side chased an outright victory against Manly-Warringah in Third Grade at LM Graham Reserve. Manly-Warringah was bundled out for 92 in its first Innings with Frei bowling two maiden from his two overs. Sydney pushed on to 7-263 declared and sent Manly-Warringah back in. They managed to survive the day with a score of 8-182 but not before Frei finished with miserly figures of 5-11 from 22 overs with 18 maidens! Truly a remarkable day with the ball and a very difficult player to score off.
