WACA Premier Cricket: Melville hopes to skittle in-form Wanneroo

MELVILLE will have its sights set on a spot in the WACA Premier Cricket top six when it squares off with Wanneroo Districts at Kingsway Sports Ground tomorrow.

The Storm enter the game confident after an emphatic eight-wicket victory over Willetton in round three and will again look to English opener Angus Robson to spearhead the batting attack alongside Luke Towers, Matthew Wiley and Tom Scollay, who top scored with 48 last time out.

Melville’s bowlers fired on all cylinders last Sunday to skittle Willetton for just 122 and will need a repeat performance against a Wanneroo side that has posted 440 runs in its two outings so far this season.

Daniel Lawrence looms as the biggest danger man in the Wanneroo line-up but the Roos bat deep and have already enjoyed meaningful contributions most of the way down the order.

Wanneroo’s Christopher Quelch is coming off a five-wicket haul in round three while both Lawrence and Robert Richards picked up four scalps each in round two.
