Wicket protection

BRIGHT captain Dylan Bursill hopes his team will put more value on their wicket when they take on Benalla Bushrangers.

BRIGHT captain Dylan Bursill hopes his team will put more value on their wicket when they take on Benalla Bushrangers in Wangaratta and District cricket this weekend.

The Wanderers were bowled out for 170 in 41 overs on the first day of their latest two day match against Wangaratta Magpies, which ended in a draw after rain washed out play on Saturday.

Three of the team’s top four batsmen got off to starts in the clash, with Kieren Jamieson and Nick Howden both making half centuries while Bursill added 20 but the captain said the whole order needed to improve.

“We made a lot of runs in the time we batted but we just didn’t bat long enough so that is something we need to make sure we do,” Bursill said.

“Nick Howden batted really well and Kieren extremely well.

“Kieren has moved up the order from last year and took his time once he went in.

“He has always been capable so it was good for him to get a few runs but most of us probably need to look at how he went about things and try and bat in a similar way.
