First XI (BCA 2nd Grade)
Ballan 30 lost Lucas 217

Bowling – Hayden Micallef 11-2-3-53, Kobe Heafield 12-3-2-34, Jack Jarvis 8.3-2-2-31, Eli Muir 7-0-2-12
Batting – Ryan Lister 20

After winning the toss and electing to bowl first, the Ballan team got off to a decent start with Kobe and Jack providing good lines and lengths to put the Lucas batsmen under pressure.

The middle overs saw Eli Muir, Brady Naeff and Ryan Lister all getting wickets with Hayden Micallef also picking up three wickets. Wickets fell often enough but some good batting from Lucas and lower order hitting meant they finished their innings after 54 overs with a score of 217.

With the bat, not much to comment on, as unfortunately Ballan put on an awful showing with the bat being all dismissed for 30.
