WACA Premier Cricket: Mitch Todd’s hundred helps Bayswater-Morley defeat Midland-Guildford

YOUNG batsman Mitch Todd put his name up in lights with a sparkling century for Bayswater-Morley in round six of the Premier Cricket season on Saturday.

Bayswater-Morley was far too strong for Midland-Guildford at Lilac Hill, with Todd’s fantastic hundred the difference between the two sides.

Todd is the competition’s in-form player with back-to-back hundreds over the past two weekends and sits second on the competition’s run scoring list.

The middle-order batsman hammered 121 from 85 balls, with 17 boundaries in a dominant display.

Chasing 161, the Bears declared at 4-247, before securing two second innings wickets to close the fixture.

Tim Smithies scored a half-century, while Jonty Wilde found some form with 1-17 from eight overs in the second innings.

Bayswater-Morley is now eighth ahead of next round’s clash with leaders Claremont-Nedlands at Hillcrest Reserve.
