With the Junior (28th March at East Burwood) & Senior (20th April at Karralyka) Presentation Nights’ to complete our season we would like to thank each and everyone for their support during the 2017/18 summer.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
There was supposed to be a lot of cricket going on today (Saturday 24th March) with the BHRDCA and RDCA Grand Finals!
But with the matches probably being washed out today, it was good to catch up with so many local club members to mark another great season in both local cricket associations. — at East Burwood Reserve.
The BHRDCA would like to acknowledge the fantastic effort that Jason May and his fabulous team at East Burwood CC went to over the 3 days play for the Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Shield. The setup & packup ran smoothly under difficult conditions. The presidents lunch and afternoon tea’s were outstanding thanks to Patrice, Libby & Sue.
We congratulate you all
BHRDCA along with MySportLive have achieved record breaking viewing stats with Facebook alone reaching over 13,000 viewers. Well done to Hoops, Lui, Bobby, Spider, Crofty, Adam & Preso Peter Rosenthal. They provided great commentary to compliment the fantastic visual coverage.
Another great Presidents Lunch at the Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Grand Final. A great turn out from club representatives, sponsors and VIP’s.
Thanks to Michael Sukkar, Neil Angus & the many sponsors for their donations that helped raise $633 for Taralye – a school in Blackburn for hearing impaired children.

Below is the link to the Live Stream to the BHRDCA Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Shield for 2017/18.
This will be played on Sunday March 18 & Saturday March 24 at East Burwood Reserve between Forest Hill and Vermont CC’s.
This has been a great innovation and we are into our 4th year of doing this. With tremendous support from My Sport Live we bring local cricket around the world through the live stream.
With 7,866 views last year and an average viewing time of 14:36 mins there is great exposure for our sponsors, BHRDCA and local cricket generally.
If you cant get to the game, I hope you can follow it on the live stream which is considerably enhanced by our expert commentary team calling every ball bowled.

A article was sent to us thismoring to acknowledge a player at Burwood District CC. check this out, he was on fire!
Bede Allsopp takes 9 wickets in the day to help Burwood District secure an outright win against Nunawading.
Burwood District needed an outright win for chance to join the last four for E Grade semi-finals action.
BDCC set the pace with a score of 4/237 off 32 overs with Shiv Goundan hitting 101 not out.
Bede then took 4 wickets for 16 runs to skittle Nunawading all out for 117 in their 1st innings after 43 overs.
In order to finalise Ladders and arrangements for Semi Final matches, (including identifying opponents and likely venues), it would be appreciated by the BHRDCA CoM, if all Clubs are as prompt as possible with their MyCricket requirements (Team Sheets, Match Details, Line Dismissals & Fielding) at the conclusion of the weekends H & A Rounds in BHRDCA Senior & Junior Sections.
Qualification Forms will be sent out this week to all Senior Clubs with a request to return these asap with likely S/F squads named, inclusive of all details requested on the forms.

All Clubs, please note
Junior Semi Finals
All Junior Friday Semi Finals are played Wednesday 7th March (Reserve Day is Thursday 8th March) and Friday 9th March (No Reserve Day).
If you can start before 5.00 p.m. then that would be advantageous as sunset is getting earlier each day.
Please note that Wednesday 7th March is also the Semi Final night for the Inner East Girls Competition, so please ensure that if your club has players in both competitions that you contact your opposition and seek an alternative night that suits both clubs as we need to be flexible in the interest of cricket.

With two weeks remaining before the end of the H & A Season, it is important for all Clubs in Grades where Bye Rounds apply, that you understand the MyCricket Ladders will not reflect the applicable Match Ratio Ladders (per BHRDCA Rules). The ladders for these grades can be found on the BHRDCA Website > Club & Playing Resources > Match Ratio Ladder (Click on the most recent dated file for the current Match Ratio Ladders)
Semi Final combatants in the Senior & Junior Grades identified, will be derived from these Ladders and not from those produced via MyCricket.
