Tough day for Bayswater-Morley against South Perth in Premier Cricket

BAYSWATER-Morley has already suffered a first-innings defeat against South Perth in an intense day at Richardson Park in their Premier Cricket clash on Saturday.

An amazing 22 wickets fell on the first day of the round 13 clash, which has all but ended Bayswater-Morley’s slim finals hopes.

The Bears started terrifically to have the Sky Blues 3-2 inside the first few overs before a middle-order partnership kept the home side alive.

Nathan Rimmington was superb upon his return, taking 6-48 as the hosts were bowled out for just 134.

Jonty Wilde (2-35 from 17 overs) continues a strong season.

Sam Birchall and Alex Bevilaqua then destroyed the Bears’ batting line-up as they were bowled out for 81.

Mitch Todd and Stephen Jennings were the only batsmen to pass 20, in a disappointing display.

South Perth finished 1-14 in the second innings, with Rimmington taking his seventh wicket for the day.
