It’s been more than a month since Werribee Centrals last tasted success in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association division 2.
The recent flat patch has not hindered the Centurions’ chances of figuring in this season’s finals though.
The Centurions will go into their final round two-day game against Kingsville at Skinner Reserve with their destiny in their own hands.
If the third-placed Centurions can win, they will feature in the finals. If they lose, they will need other results to go their way.
Should it qualify, Werribee Centrals will be eager to head into the finals on a winning note.
Only one win since the Christmas break is not the kind of form you want heading into a cut-throat semi-final.
Werribee Centrals were disappointing with the bat in a 35-run loss to Williamstown CYMS at Fearon Reserve last start. The Centurions were bowled out for 105 in 44.2 overs.
Rishan Kavinga (32) and Waqar Shah (20) were the only real resistance to CYs bowling.
The bowlers made life hard for the CYs batsmen, but the defence of such a small total left them in an unfavourable position.
In division 3, Seabrook’s hopes of a rare win were shattered after it was bowled out for 142 in its chase for Williamstown Imperials’ 156.
Walgama Eranga put his side into a position of strength with 85 but he received little assistance as the Saints lost all 10 wickets for just 71 after starting the chase on 0-71.
Point Cook’s game of musical chairs with Sunshine at the top of the division 3 ladder continued, but this time the music stopped and the Warriors found themselves back down into second place, four points behind.
The Warriors score of 165 was not enough against in-form Sunshine Heights, who passed the target eight down.
In division 4, Wyndham Vale cruised to a first innings victory over St Andrews, but could not obtain a much-desired outright result.
In division 5, Bellbridge was skittled for 111 in its search for Footscray ANA’s 9-218.
