RMIT Cricket Club wins seventh premiership
RMIT Cricket Club celebrate their seventh premiership victory.
RMIT Cricket Club wins the premiership by six wickets in a four-day test, after making it through to the final undefeated.
The opposition, Taylors Lakes, boasted the league’s top two wicket takers, so it was a tough final match.
RMIT won the toss and finished the first day in the lead with Taylors Lakes reaching 7/110 before a torrential downpour stopped play for the day.
Some late hitting on the second day saw their score reach 212 before they were bowled out.
RMIT’s batting had been their strength all year but under pressure they crashed to 6/138. In the end they reached 247 all out due to some handy runs from batsman Tara Jana.
On day three Taylors Lakes were only able to reach 99 runs in their second innings before being bowled out. This left RMIT with just 70 runs to reach on day four, which they were able to do with the loss of only four wickets.
While it was a team effort and hard to single out a particular player, Tara Jana was judged man of the match on the back of his three first inning’s wickets and batting score of 74.
