CRCA CRICKET: While Luke Many starred with the ball in the second innings picking up 6 for 36 off 10 overs, it was truly a team effort as the Harwood attack rolled through Westlawn's batting line-up twice in one afternoon.

It was the perfect way to start another premiership defence according to captain Nathan Ensbey who could only watch on in the field as pace bowlers Hayden McMahon (3 for 15 off 7), Ken Richards (3 for 28 off 7) and Daley Durrant (1 for 8 off 6) kicked things off with the new ball in the first innings.

"Our boys did really well to start the innings," Ensbey said. "Hayden and Daley were getting some nice movement through the air and were just able to bowl the right lines to stop the run scoring."

The bowlers were well backed up in the field with Harwood not turfing a single chance in the first innings including five that went to a sticky-handed slips cordon.

"We took a few off the edge of the willow in the slips which was good to see," Ensbey said. "Catches are a key ingredient to any win especially if you are going to take 19 wickets in a day."

A few errors in shot selection helped undo Westlawn but with a target of 272 the pressure to chase quick runs soon mounted and the first innings was all over with just 83 runs on the board off 25.4 overs with Brad Inmon (26) and Luke McLachlan (23 the top scorers.

Unused in the first innings, Many was brought into the attack early in the second and he repaid his captain's faith by running through the Westlawn top order which was missing the experience of captain Pat Vidler.

"It is good to see Luke back into the wickets column," Ensbey said. "He struggled to jag many last year so it is good to see him start this season in top fashion."

Doug Harris was also not required in the first dig but chipped in with the off-spinner claiming 3 for 5 off 2.3 at the end of the innings.

Ensbey was pleased to see his bowlers bending their backs in the early stages of the season on what was not an optimal bowling track.

"It was another batting paradise out there at Harwood, I certainly know the wicket didn't contribute to the 19 wickets that fell out there in the middle."
