Kroehnert in command as Westlawn skittled for 74

CRCA CRICKET: Brothers' opening bowler Mitch Kroehnert had the ball on a string for Clocktower Hotel Brothers in GDSC Premier League at Ulmarra Showground on Saturday.

The representative seamer's 4 for 23 off 8 overs helped skittle Jacaranda Hotel Westlawn for 74 in its first innings, falling 266 runs shy of Brothers' dominant 7 for 340.

 

Chasing down 300 plus was always going to be a daunting task and from the moment opener Simon Wilson (1) returned to the sheds with only six runs it never looked likely.

Opener Kallen Lawrence (10) and recently recalled representative batsman Jason Rainbow (19) put up a fight with a 25-run stand but, alongside bowling partner Jack Weatherstone (2 for 30 off 8), the wickets soon flowed for Kroehnert with Westlawn struggling at 4 for 40.

Luke McLachlan (12) managed a few flashy boundaries off Troy McLaren (2 for 14 off 3) but it was not long before the veteran got his man and Westlawn experienced another collapse, losing 3 for 1.

Billy Weatherstone (2 for 0 off 1.2) made short work of the Westlawn tail before Brothers sent back into bat in search of an outright.

This time, however, a defiant Lawrence (64*) and Wilson (29) refused to lie down and combined for a 74-run opening stand.

McLachlan also took full advantage of a tiring bowling outfit to register his first half century of the season, hitting 10 boundaries and two sixes on his way to 62.

Stumps were called after McLachlan's wicket with Brothers taking a first innings victory.
