Third ball

5 for 8! Yes, you read that right! Sutherland’s Ronak Bedi wasted no time in the search for wickets at the weekend. The second-grade bowler left a trail of destruction against Hawkesbury with his 4.4 overs delivering five wickets for just 8-runs.

Fourth Ball

Having reached 399 wickets in Premier cricket last weekend, Penrith’s Josh Lalor wasted no time in chalking up his 400th with figures of 1 for 18 off six overs against Campbelltown-Camden. For the record, Hugh Chilvers holds the title for the most dismissals in the competition’s history with a remarkable 1,153.

Fifth ball

No challenge too tough! Gordon edged its way into the history books on Saturday as they chased down UTS North Sydney's total of 3-364. The result was the highest ever limited overs chase in NSW Premier Cricket’s first grade history. Opener Taj Brar (115) and Dylan Hunter (139) scored maiden centuries in the process.

Last ball

Unstoppable Macdonald! St George’s Blake Macdonald proved a hard man to dismiss at the weekend, with a combined 201 runs without dismissal across two matches. At the same time he passed a career milestone, scoring his 2000th first grade run.
