DESPITE being two players short, Benalla arrived in Mansfield primed for whirlwind action, but in the end went home empty handed.

Competing at the Lords Reserve in the final round of Twenty/20 contests in Division A, Delatite’s much vaunted attack was put to the test to contain Benalla’s swashbucklers.

Sam Hazell opened with 12, James Dalton at number three hit 18, Josh Mellington smashed into and over the fence for 24 and Jake Pallpratt was similarly entertaining for 24 not out.

Further down the order Richard Martiniello contributed 11 not out.

Very nearly half the runs came in boundaries so it was certainly a spectacle worth coming to see.
