4th Grade Report: v TTG Day 1 Today didn’t go the way of the 4th Grade from the start of the day. With rain soaking the pitch overnight, and more threatening, both captains were looking to bowl. Unfortunately, after a delayed start, we lost the toss (with more rain sprinkling). Jack Konnis and young Campbell [ Read More…]

West End Men's 1st Grade Round 9 day 1

Elliot Opie and Lucas Froude have engineered one of Kensington’s more significant innings recoveries, steering the Browns towards a defensible total from what had been a ruinous start.

Kensington fell just two wickets short of salvaging outright points at Parkinson Oval, helped by a sportingly swift Sturt declaration that opened up possibilities for both sides neither could ultimately attain.   In significantly more comfortable conditions than the previous day, the visitors took just 3.3 overs to claim the first-innings points without further loss [ Read More…]

Sturt are just 17 runs short of first-innings points after a scorching day that saw the visitors field in the toughest conditions, before a mid-afternoon wind change and slight easing, but that also saw five of our top seven contribute just four runs between them.

Kensington v Northern Districts Playing on the Saturday before Christmas, with several players unavailable, we took on our nemesis in Northern Districts.
