WACA Premier Cricket: inability to take wickets proves costly for Midland-Guildford in loss to Melvilee

MIDLAND-Guildford was outclassed by an Adam Voges-led Melville side in Round Seven of Premier Cricket at Tompkins Park on Saturday.

The WA captain scored an unbeaten century in pursuit of Midland-Guildford’s 290 to guide Melville to a seven-wicket victory.

Jack Baker and Will Riley were the pick of the bowlers for the Monkey Towners with a wicket apiece.

Voges and Drew Porter’s 257-run fourth-wicket stand meant Melville chased down the total with the loss of only three wickets.

Once again, a lack of penetration from the bowlers proved costly for Midland-Guildford, who have only managed to take 28 wickets in six games.

The result condemned Midland-Guildford to its fifth consecutive defeat and 13th spot on the ladder.
