WACA Premier Cricket: Adam Voges returns to steer Melville to win over Midland-Guildford

RETURNING WA captain Adam Voges was the story of Premier Cricket’s round seven, leading Melville to victory over Midland-Guildford.

Voges and Drew Porter were a class above at Tompkins Park as the Storm cruised in their run chase to defeat the Monkey Towners by seven wickets.

In pursuit of 290, Melville looked in trouble early at 3/104 before the pair combined for an unbeaten 257-run fifth wicket stand to lead their side to 3/361.

Undoubtedly, Voges was the highlight of the day hammering 16 boundaries on his return to cricket from a concussion as he amassed 142 not out.

Porter was equally as impressive scoring 119 not out during his 136-ball knock.

The result lifts Melville up to ninth and ends their two-game losing run.

In the women’s A-Grade T20 on Sunday, Melville lost to South Perth by five wickets.

The Storm struggled for any fluency with the bat, managing just 83 runs which South Perth chased down with three overs to spare.
