Delatite secures double wins

ONE HANDED: Lachie Christopher in the tough spot of silly mid on gets a hand to the ball, but not out says the umpire.

LIKE cricketers around Australia, both teams at the Lords Ground began the day’s play with a minute of silence for Phil Hughes.

Players wore black arm bands in honor and respect for a great man and a great cricketer.

The Delatite firsts once again proved their worth on the longer form of the game in the second day of their two day match against St Joseph’s.

After posting a very respectable score of 246 at the completion of the first day of the match, Delatite looked to keep the ball rolling, and they did just that.

Rumesh Ranasinghe once again proved extremely valuable with the ball, causing serious damage to an already struggling St Joseph’s batting line up.
