Lynch helps Brothers back on track
BROTHERS are finally back in the winners’ circle after a Ryan Lynch-inspired bowling performance saw them home comfortably against South Services at Ellem Oval.
Brothers had lost their last three Premier League games and the win against South has boosted the side, according to their captain Brad Robertson. “We had a chat before the game and talked about how we needed to lift as a team. We have been down on confidence lately and needed to work for each other,” he said
South were bundled out for 110 and had no answer to the bowling of Lynch who took 5-22. Tom Kroehnert top scored with a gritty 27 and remained not out. Openers Brett Woods (17) and Matt Peterson (16) were next best.
In reply, Brothers reached 112 for the loss of three wickets, with Jarrad Lynch (27) and Mick Summers (31 not out) providing most of the runs.
Robertson had one word for Lynch’s bowling performance – sensational.
“Ryan hasn’t taken many wickets for a few weeks and it is good to see him back in form. It’s the best I’ve seen him bowl this year and I hope he keeps it going,” Robertson said.
“I think it’s the first time Ryan has taken five wickets in an innings and after the game he was looking for the match ball.”
Jason Thompson took two of the three Brothers wickets to fall.
