Dumbleyung Kukerin Cricket Update

The Captain Kalan Joyce won the toss and chose to bat. He shook up the batting order and sent Matthew Gilfellon out to open with Dame Leo. For the second time in two weeks the opposition opened the bowling with a spinner but if it was to take advantage of a witness the witness was not shown, the openers getting the team off to a strong start. When Dame fell, Ashley Frame, also promoted up the order, came on and formed another good partnership. Kalan Joyce then came and looked as solid as ever leaving Kukerin-Dumbleyung well placed at drinks. When another wicket fell The Big Show, Scott Jefferis, entered and began an innings straight out of the MCC Coaches Manual, if the manual was read upside-down and backwards. Scott combined well with Kalan and then Pete Joyce to lift the run rate as the overs ticked along. Towards the end of the innings Lee Smith entered and gave the run rate an even bigger boost. Scott and Lee completed the innings not out and provided plenty of entertainment along the way with a range of shots all around the ground and both seemingly competing to out hit each. Kukerin-Dumbleyung finished the 45 overs on 5/247.
With Narrogin’s strong and aggressive lineup the captain warned everyone to be on their game as the total may not have been enough. Then, as a bookend to the start of the season, the Narrogin innings was seemingly over before it began. David Head struck first when the score was on five. Scott Gray then joined in taken his first and then his second with his next ball. David then got another before Scott Gray completed his hat-trick, celebrating in tremendous style. The rapid loss of wickets did not stop with David slicing through the line-up picking up four more. Conan Holder replaced Scott and after giving a little bit of time to David to get one more, Conan finished the innings off. Narrogin were all out for 29 from 13 overs.
With an early finish to the game, everyone quickly dispersed to continue their long weekends in other parts of the state, leaving Narrogin to lament their loss at the pub while a few strong performers got to drive away with a smile on their face.
Kukerin-Dumbleyung will face Harrismith at Harrismith in an elimination final to see who will play a Cuballing in the Grand Final.
S Jefferis 86* D Head 6/17 (6)
M Gilfellon 48 S Gray 3/11 (5)
L Smith 36* C Holder 1/1 (2)
On the remaining two days of the long weekend three players, Kalan Joyce, David Head and Conan Holder represented Upper Great Southern at the Country Cup. The Upper Great Southern came second in the competition. In a repeat of the Country Week results, Upper Great Southern lost to Peel in the Grand Final. Congratulations to the three players on their involvement and additional congratulations to David Head who came third on the Brad Hogg Medal, awarded for the player of the tournament.
