In an intriguing game for the Bendigo Bank Match of the day, Sorrento squeezed past Moorooduc’s 216 in the last few overs of the day with 8 wickets down. 

Tight bowling and judicious field placement by Leigh Lambert saw Moorooduc run through the middle order. Opening bowler Andrew King ended up with 48 not out and took the Sharks to a win and fourth place.

Next week the Bendigo Bank Match of the Day will be top two District teams Baden Powell and Red Hill.

On Sunday at 2pm on 98.7 RPP FM, the T20 Grand Final will be brought to you live when Sorrento play Delacombe Park.

The T20 teams

Sorrento boasts aggressive batsmen including ex-Victorian player Nick Jewell, Leigh Poholke and the ‘running machine’ Bobby Wilson.

Also a very useful middle order includes Ben Tracey and the King brothers. The bowler sticks will be bolstered by the return of Andrew King and the promising young Bobby Parslow.

Delacombe will rely on the hard hitting Christides brothers, coach Guthrie and all rounder Shane Deal. Their bowling has relied on spin bowling from Jarrod Dobler, Anderson and Nick Christides plus leftie Andrew Stapleton.

Sorrento are fresh from the statewide T20 titles and probably start the game as warm favourites.
