WACA Premier Cricket: Midland Guildford destroyed by Willetton’s Mitch Hanna

MIDLAND Guildford stares down the barrel of defeat in its two-day game against Willetton thanks to a magnificent spell from Mitch Hanna.

The decision to send Midland Guildford in to bat turned out to be a brilliant one for Willetton, even though it did not immediately pay off.

Sitting at 2-35, Hanna then went on a rampage.

No batsman was safe againstHanna as he battered his way through Midland Guildford’s beleaguered line up, finishing with an astonishing 6-41 off 21 overs, seven of which were maidens.

There was little to get excited about for the home side, as six batsmen failed to reach double figures on their way to the lowly total of 107 after 60 overs.

Willetton, full of confidence, started its innings with gusto, sitting in the enviable position of 2-70.

Captain Matthew Johnston and Aaron Hardie will continue at the crease on day two, sitting on 41 and four respectively.

Willetton will be hoping to dust off the contest on day two of its Lilac Hill clash with Midland Guildford on Saturday, November 4 at 11.40am.
