Kroehnert praises youth as Souths win big under lights

NIGHT CRICKET: SOUTH Services have given themselves a mathematical chance of making the Cleavers Mechanical Night Cricket finals and in turn ruled Westlawn out after defeating them by 63 runs on Wednesday night.

South Services won the toss and went in to bat which proved to be a good idea from interim captain Tom Kroehnert until wickets began tumbling in the fifth over.

Souths went from 0/33 to 4/40 in the space of four overs after consistent bowling from experienced Westlawn pair Ian O'Toole and John Blanch proved unplayable.

"We started very well, but then we hit a rocky patch," Kroehnert said. "But we believe that if you stay positive, good things will happen.


"Our middle and lower order pulled through for us and got us to a very respectable total for our bowlers to aim at."

Kroehnert praised the efforts of his youthful bowling attack for picking up the brunt of the middle overs.

"I would really love to give Matt Dalton and Zac Wheatley a big plug, they opened the bowling and did a fantastic job for our side," he said.

"We saved Spies for the last 10 to have our experienced bowlers at the end and he came in and cleaned them up nicely."

Justin Rainbow scored a game high 52 in his return.
