Top of the table B Grade took on West Torrens at Parkinson on Saturday. Winning the toss and electing to bowl, Kensington were made to work hard for the intial breakthrough with West Torrens getting to 0/25 before Michael Cappalutti got an edge to Sam Williams at second slip. The second wicket to Daniel Burns quickly followed before West Torrens steadied in the second hour. With 20 minutes to lunch and only two wickets down after being sent in West Torrens would of been the happier side but a double breakthrough to Nick Palmer and Tom Mackenzie, including a wicket on the last ball of the session to a wicked wrong un, saw honours fairly even at 4/90.
The middle session saw Kensington get on top with two wickets to Michael Cappalutti before an excellent partnership from West Torrens rescued the innings with the 7th wicket putting on 100. This took the score to 6/220 just after tea before Daniel Burns and Tom Mackenzie combined to knock over the last 4 wickets in a hurry, West Torrens all out for 237. Three wickets each to Michael Cappalutti, Daniel Burns and leg spinner Tom Mackenzie who has really taken to B grade comfortably.
With 14 overs left to bat Nick Palmer and Sean Mcullum opened, each playing positively and punishing anything loose despite the time of day, this brilliant hour of batting left the Browns in command at 0/60 overnight with a great oppourtunity to finish the job next Saturday.
