County All-Rounder Barnard Amongst The Wickets Down Under

Ed Barnard was amongst the wickets for Queanbeyan District on the opening day of their Australian Capital Territory first grade match with visiting Western District UC.

The Worcestershire all-rounder had showed his prowess with the bat last weekend in scoring 76 in the win over Tuggeranong Valley.

This time England Under-19 player Barnard took the new ball and was rewarded with three of the first four wickets to fall.

His efforts helped reduce Western District to 67-4 after they had elected to bat before they recovered to reach 248 all out.

Barnard finished with figures of 3-58 from 12 overs.

He may also be required to make another sizeable contribution with the bat if Queanbeyan are to reach their target next weekend.

They had scored 113-3 off 39 overs with Barnard coming to the wicket shortly before the close and yet to open his account.

Ross Whiteley was dismissed for a single as Prospect CC were beaten by Port Adelaide on the second day of a South Australian Cricket Association 'A' grade fixture.

Whiteley had scored 98 not out against Sturt last weekend and rain denied him a second hundred of the winter.

But this time the New Road all-rounder was second out with just five runs on the board and his side reached 160 all out in 84.2 overs.

It was a target Adelaide reached for the loss of four wickets in 62.5 overs.
