Nuna resurgence continues
The Nuna First XI resurgence continues after another good win, this time against Box Hill North SuperKings. We do recognise that our First XI are generally playing other club's 2nds and 3rds, but we are in B Grade as result of some very poor seasons and we hope to move back up the grades as soon as we can. Trent Batchelor, in only his third game for the club, scored a magnificent 206 and put on 270 odd for the second wicket with Nath Larkins who scored 99 (out playing an agricultural shot trying to push the score along and thinking he was '70 odd' We are unbeaten to date which is great. We just hope we can continue this form and repeat it when it counts in March.
Also of note is the success of the 20/20 side, also unbeaten after 2 rounds. Buddy Mendis scored a ton last week and we beat teams from quality clubs Kew and Heatherdale so more good news for the club. Game 1 highlight was the great all-round performance of U14 coach and Prahran player Darcy OConnor in his first (of many?) appearances in the purple and gold.
The 2nd XI is hanging in there and a game out of the 4, the 3rd XI losing too many and the 4th XI also in touch in 5th spot but the 1-day XI is going really well and in the 4.
The juniors are going really well as well with all competitive side (U14s and U12s) in contention, Many of our U14s have played senior cricket this year which is another terrific sign.
