Perhaps it was the changeover from the two day to a one day format, there were a couple of unexpected results in both grades that have resulted in a tightening of the race for finals spots. After a week of wet weather, we lucked out again with a fine and barmy evening.

BHRDCA win the VMCU U/12 Girls Fatone Shield for 2015.

Sunday 18 January, Chelsworth Park


Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association (BHRDCA) U12 girls captain, Lara Shannon (Templestowe CC) won the toss and elected to bowl.


Some tight fielding and great bowling, saw Ferntree Gully & District Cricket Association (FGDCA) contained to 4/23 after 8 overs. FTG then fought back, and were 5/94 after 17 overs.


The 18th over, bowled by Caitlin Morando (Kerrimuir CC) produced 4 wickets,
including two run outs, and FTG finished at 9/130cc.


Lara with 3/7, and Caitlin with 2/6, were clearly excellent, but the efforts of Ashling O’Farrell (Blackburn South CC), 1/8 and Vaishnavi Munukutla (Nunawading CC), 1/17 were quite significant.


Sisters, Brooke and Kate Vickers (both Blackburn CC), bowled some of the very important overs at the end of FTG’s innings and helped to keep the score to an achievable target.


Our batting was always steady, and never fell behind the required run rate. Ali Elliot (Blackburn CC) opened with Lara, and they set about reeling in the largest total we have chased all carnival.


After 8 overs we were 0/49, with the third batting pair of Vaishnavi and Sierra Maharaj (Nunawading CC) coming in to bat for the important middle overs. They may have only added 7 runs together, but most importantly, neither was dismissed. A great effort by our youngest two players. Some terrific lower order batting, especially from Hailey Ferris (Heatherdale CC), saw us reach 4/146cc, and post a memorable win.


To top this off, Caitlin was awarded the player of the final by umpires, Liam MacGibbon and Harry Sherrard.


We applaud the spirited efforts of the FTG girls, who took it right up to us, in a see-sawing match, that easily could have gone either way.


Many thanks to Darren Montgomery and Sonia Kulkarni for coaching this great team of girls.

Our three U18 regional team partners, (Emus, Eagles and Scorpions) were unable to qualify for finals this past week. On Monday, the U16 and U14 teams begin their campaigns.

In the U15 Craig Shield, Box Hill have taken 2nd. Spot in their group by less than 0.05%, to move into finals. They play Brighton on Tuesday at Box Hill City Oval

Balwyn will play Yarraville at Balwyn park, having finished top of their group. Unfortunately, Kew have finished last in the same group, and will not play finals.

Our U18 team finished third with 3 wins and 2 losses. No opportunity to progress as there are no semi finals.

The U16 Beitzel turf team won two of five matches, losing the last match by only two runs to the overall top team.

The U16 Mackay, not only finished eighth to play a quarter final, they then beat the top side, and then had a fantastic semi final, losing to MPCA.

The U14 Allen team lost a very tight home quarter final, while the U14 Nolan team was washed out in their quarter final, and could not proceed as they were the away team

The U12 Mitchell team finished without a win, but managed to avoid last place by percentage.

The U12 Browne team, played two quarter finals, both washed out draws, going through to the semi as the home team. They lost a close semi to NMCA, to be our best performed boys team overall.

This leaves our U12 girls team to play their grand final today at Chelsworth park, Irvine road, Ivanhoe. The match starts at 10 am and should conclude at about 1.30pm.


It would be fantastic if we can get some BHRDCA support for these young ladies today, as I am sure our opponents from FTCDCA will have plenty of supporters too.

Hope to see you there…



Kind regards

On Sunday 4th January Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Assn welcomed in the new year in hosting a visiting touring school team from Timaru New Zealand at East Burwood Reserve.


Under overcast skies the visitors won the toss and elected to bat. Despite some lively pace from Box Hill’s Dean Wilding and Jed Dally the score rose steadily reaching a handy 34 before Wilding got one to nip back rattling opener Shaun Rooney’s stumps for 23.


The Kiwi top order again began to consolidate but the introduction of Matt Magee and Grant Weaver had immediate effect with Magee in particular having the batsmen in all sorts of trouble and the middle order collapse left the visitors in trouble at 6/76.


Any thoughts of a revival were quickly expelled by Sam Kimber and Ronan Prigg as they cleaned up the tail restricting Timaru to 111 all out. Magee 3/11 and Kimber 2/5 returned the best figures but all bowlers did a great job.


After an enormous afternoon tea Janit Ratnayake and Zach Tziskas began Box Hill’s run chase. Both openers got a start before falling victim to Timaru’s Josh Mehrtens who chimed in with a third victim trapping Ronan Prigg in front to have the home team struggling at 3/30.


This brought skipper Michael Baysinger and Justin Beach together and it was their quickfire 70 run partnership that put the game out of doubt Michael retiring on 49 and Justin on 25 steering Box Hill through to an excellent win.


Josh Mehertens for Timaru and Michael Baysinger for Box Hill were adjudged Players of the Match.

Scores not received: RMS KH v BT and DMS BD v Nunawading not received in time for Sunday papers.
BD was texted at 11.41pm, and KH scores were not on MyCricket until Sunday morning.
Only score not received by Sunday morning was B grade BN v MWH.
There were only two games washed out- C grade Vermont v BHNSK and ODB GWH v PO.
There was a late forfeit by EBH in F grade.

BHRDCA U/12 Girls are first team into a 2015 VMCU carnival Grand Final.


Having won all three of their round robin matches, our U12 girls team, was to play a semi final on 9/01/15. It was washed out, and while the other semi final was still in progress, across the other side of Melbourne, our team progressed to the final, as the higher finishing team.


Therefore we I think we can (cheekily) claim we had the first team into a grand final for the 2015 carnival.


While our inaugural girls representative team has had un-defeated progress to the grand final, our other seven teams have had mixed results.


The U/18 team has won 2, lost 1 and are 2nd on ladder with today’s match v ECA probably deciding who will progress to the grand final (no semi final in this grade).


The U/16 Beitzel turf team, has dropped its last two matches after starting with a win in a run fest (400 runs in the day off 90 overs), and are needing to win today and tomorrow to make the semi finals.


The U/16 Mackay team has struggled early and lost first three matches, but won a thriller by one run on Friday, to not only get off the bottom of the ladder, but give themselves a shot at a quarter final place.


The U/14 Allen team started with a narrow loss to arch rival ECA, but have turned it around with two wins, and a good chance of a home quarter final.


The U/14 Nolan team started in a blaze, winning the first two matches, but have come back to earth with a loss, but still in the top four, and a good chance of a home quarter final.


The U/12 Mitchell team has yet to register a win, but has been competitive in every match. A win today will see them back in the hunt.


The U/12 Browne team has won 2 , drawn 1, and lost 1, to be top 4. A win today should confirm a home quarter final on Tuesday.


This time last year we were trying to keep cool in the middle of days after days of 40 degrees plus weather, and no play. This week much cooler conditions and some rain about to annoy us all.


Today should be fine and warm as all the boys teams are in action. Get along to a match today if you can, and fly the BHRDCA flag!


U/18’s away v ECA at Donvale Reserve #1 turf wicket (Donvale cricket Club)
U/16 Beitzel, home v FTGDCA at Springfield park turf wicket (next to Kerrimuir CC)
U/16 Mackay, away v MPCA at Bruce park, Frankston
U/14 Allen, home v NWMCA at East Burwood #1
U/14 Nolan, home v WRJCA at East Burwood #2
U/12 Mitchell, home v NWMCA at Heatherdale #1
U/12 Browne, home v ECA at Heatherdale #2


We also had many of our U/15 boys are playing in the Craig Shield completion for a variety of Sub district clubs, which started last Tuesday.


Of those, several are at Kew CC, who has had a slow start; and a strong representation at Box Hill CC, who are so far un-defeated, including a great win against Oakleigh, yesterday at Springfield park.



Many players are involved in Emus, Eagles and Scorpions U/14 to U/18 regional teams.
Yesterday the u18 Emus and U18 Scorpions both lost, but the u18 eagles had a great win, with Lincoln Wong of Heathmont CC getting amongst the runs.


Good Luck to all teams!

Forecast today is for light intermittent rain, therefore the CoM have resolved that play will be determined on a case by case basis with umpires or captains call as appropriate.


All the best to teams.


Peter White

Please note: Association call on weather & play will be made by 10:30am Saturday via text message to Club Secretary and notification on the BHRDCA website.





Check out this super deal from Ash & the team at Storage King Mitcham! These guys are great supporters of the association, so if you or your club are looking for a storage solution give them a call!



U18 Arnold shield, BHRDCA v NWMCA, Round 3 to be played at City oval, Box Hill 8/01/2015.

BHRDCA wish to advise that due to the centre wicket at City Oval, Box Hill, being drenched today by rain, before the covers could be put in place (and washing out the u15 match in progress), it has been decided to make a call to move this match to a synthetic wicket instead. This is also due to the fact that city oval will remain uncovered overnight, and more rain is forecast.


So details of new venue are :

East Burwood Reserve south, Burwood highway, East Burwood. Map 62 B7.


BHRDCA will provide all player drinks and lunch for both teams and officials, as we would have done at city oval.


We apologies that this match cannot take place on a turf wicket..I know our team were really looking forward to playing on the best turf facilities in the City of Whitehorse.

BHRDCA U/12 girls posted their first win today! The team made 4/180 on reply to Western Region 9/68.


Scores will be adjusted for loss of wickets by adding 45 runs to our score and 29 runs to their score.


Congratulations girls. You all played as a team, and fielded and bowled brilliantly


Thank you to Darren and Sonia for great coaching. See you tomorrow same ground and start time to play Diamond Valley.

Monday Jan 5 sees our junior sides start their VMCU carnivals. This year we have a record number of sides including the u/18’s for the first time and a girls u/12 side also competing for the first time. There are two sides in each of the 12, 14, and 16 age groups with our u/16 Beitzel Shield side the defending champions having won this for the first time last season.

Attached are the games and grounds for those who want to watch the best of our juniors over the next 10+ days and our U/12 Fatone Shield team. The teams progress can also be followed on My Cricket using the Rep/Carnival teams tab.



Good luck to all the boys, girls and coaches representing the association and the umpires selected to officiate. Last year BHRDCA had 3 umpires stand in grand finals.

No report U12BS Blackburn North v Kerrimuir United.
No report for Sunday papers DM Park Orchards v Bulleen Templestowe. The report for RM had an incorrect score for Koonung Heights and Templestowe – not sure how that happened.
The U14B Friday game between Park Orchards Red and Park Orchards Black was played as a one day match on 20 December.
The F Grade match between St Davids and Forest Hill appears to have had a very early finish. Last week St D 7-74; FH 6-73. This week St D 79; FH 95

BHRDCA Veterans got the back-to-back winning result they sought on Sunday and took home the Colonels Cup for the champion association in the annual carnival v RDCA.


Over 60’s


This was an awesome display by the “old fella’s” who came up triumphant for the first time. Played on turf at Stradbroke Park, Ian Pell won the toss and put the opposition into the field. Stuart Stockdale (17) played the anchor role to perfection but it was Super Kings Rajan Selavanayagam (43*) and Vic Stars Sri Rajah (43*) who were the backbone of our final score of 169. Peter Mikovic (20) and skipper Ian Pell (27*) kept the score ticking along and we were confident of defending that total.


In reply Gary Paget played the same anchor role as Stuart did for us and with Ian “Spanner” Spencer (40*) in full flight with the RDCA 1/50 after 13 it was vital that we tightened our bowling. This was achieved by the evergreen wiley Canterbury bowler Peter Mirkovic, ably supported by fellow team mate John Kent who were stingy with the runs. Sri and Rajan backed up their batting heroics and the RDCA ran out of overs struggling at 7 / 115 – a great result.
Man of the Match was Rajan Selvanayagam.


Over 50’s


Played on the top field at Victoria Park, Franks fanatics were set to repeat last years winning ways and an early wicket seemed to back that cause. Gradually however Ken Trollope (40*) and Ray Phillips (29) got the Ringwood score ticking and despite some sensational form with the ball by Nth Balwyns Mark Worsnop whose 4 / 22 kept them down to a gettable 159.


Unfortunately our run chase never got under way and at 6 / 54 all thoughts of a win were quickly evaporating. Mont Alberts David Corrigan (33) was hitting the ball well and a quick 22 by Nth Alphington’s Dom O’Brien gave us some heart but the final scoreline of 133 was an agonising 27 runs short.

BHRDCA Man of the Match was Mark Worsnop.


Over 40’s


Also played at Victoria Park, it was up to the youngsters to carry the day. Skipper Brett Cunningham had no hesitation sending Ringwood into bat and the fiery opening attack of Mt Waverley’s James Morris and Deepdene Bears David Molloy set the agenda for their fellow bowlers. With great fielding backing all bowlers the run rate was slow the ton taking 28 overs to reach. This was a real team effort as Brett juggled his bowlers brilliantly and they all responded. The final scoreline of 7/129cc was well within our reach.


Kew’s Joe Ahmad (13) and Mt Waverley legend Steve Viccars (41*) were obviously looking for an early beer taking only 8 overs to bring up the 50. The loss of 3 quick wickets put us on the back foot as Ringwood bowlers began to claw their way back into the match, but the early onslaught proved too big a hurdle to overcome as Joe Powell (28*) and Greg Cotton (23*) put down their heads and sensible batting saw us home with 9 overs still in the bank and a great Back-to-Back result for the 40’s and put the Colonel’s Cup beyond doubt.
Man of the Match was Steve Viccars.


A big thank you to the umpires and to Deepdene Bears and Kew CC for their fantastic hospitality.
