CRICKET is in full swing in the south-west and the runs are starting to flow for the region’s best batsmen.
There were a number of centuries – across Warrnambool and District, South West and Grassmere associations – on Saturday.
But it was a unique feat which got Dennington import Chris Cheslin smiling.
The English all-rounder broke a stump with a sublime piece of fielding to send his Wesley-CBC opponent packing.
Elsewhere, hundreds of budding basketballers put their skills on show at the Warrnambool Seaside Junior Basketball Classic.
The two-day event attracted 108 teams full of players hoping to one day emulate the feats of Warrnambool’s own Nathan Sobey who produced the NBL’s first triple double in three seasons on Friday night.
This coming week is sure to be busy with plenty happening in the south-west including an SRA Series round at Premier Speedway, Warrnambool Tri Club’s Couch to Coast, Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club’s Thunder Point 180 and the Mortlake Cup.
