Both First XI and the Sunday A Grade win flags

The CCC first XI won their first premiership since 1996/97 this past weekend in the CSB Div 1. This was the 3rd attempt at the 2 day final and the win was completed in style bowling out Brighton District for 71 on day one and passing them prior to stumps on day one. We then returned the following day and batted really well to get to 5 for 157 before Brighton called stumps. Man of the match and club coach Vinay Tripathi with 2 wickets and 46 N/O. The support at the ground both days was tremendous. A great all round performance with the ball and bat, wickets and runs evenly shared across the team. Also thanks to McKinnon CC for hosting the match and doing a fine job.

The Sunday A grade also joined the party late on Sunday as they defeated the Melbourne Cobras in the A-Sunday GF for the 2nd year in a row to go back to back. Batting first at Koornang Park we made 194 off our 45 overs (G Takkiar 69) and then bundled the Cobra’s out for 100. Man of the match Anil Malik with 5/45 (for the second week in row) did the damage with the ball. Again this was also in front of a very large crowd of around 200 very happy supporters.

More reports from the matches to come.

Go Neggies!
