Welcome to Denhams Road for the opening day’s play between Kooweerup and Pakenham – a rematch of last season’s decider.

The Demons have won the toss and elected to bat with Mark Cooper and Chris O’Hara opening against Chris Savage and Thom Jones.

 

1:10pm – Mark Cooper run out at the batsman’s end after a drive by Chris O’Hara to the rocket arm of Zac Chaplin. 1/1. Ben Spicer the new batsman.

1:20 – Kooweerup still 1/1 in the face of some straight, full bowling by Savage and Jones.

1:50 – Savage has left the field after tweaking his calf, heading straight into the rooms – replaced on the field by 12th man Dillon Allen. Kooweerup is still 3/13 off 14 overs after Cammarano was spectacularly caught behind by Rob Elston off Tyrrell. Jess Mathers is the new batsman.

2:00 – Mathers is given caught slashing off Dom Paynter’s bowling. There was some conjecture as to whether it was a bump ball or not. Kooweerup is in deep trouble at 4/20 off 16 overs with Chris Bright (6) joining O’Hara.
