Ben Twohig picked up two more T20 wickets but he and Ben Cox’s side, Southern Districts, went down by 54 runs to East Torrens in today’s South Australia Cricket Association Premier Cricket match.

The Worcestershire spinner shared the new ball – with ex Sussex left armer Lewis Hatchett – and was rewarded with two wickets in the final over of the innings.

His victims included Jake Lehmann who batted excellently to make 96 off 61 balls with three sixes and nine fours.

Twohig ended with figures of 4-0-30-2 after bowling the first, sixth, 15th and 20th overs as East Torrens totalled 156-7.

He now has an overall analysis from four appearances in the T20 competition of 16-1-74-8.

Twohig also ran out opener Michael Cranmer (9) with a direct hit from backward point.

Southern Districts never threatened to reach their target and closed on 102-9.

Cox, who did not keep wicket in this particular game, made a breezy 16 off 12 deliveries with three boundaries.

Twohig hit one of only two sixes in the innings in reaching 13 off 18 balls before he was caught by Gloucestershire’s Ian Cockbain in the deep.

The County duo are also in action tomorrow against visiting Prospect CC in a SACA first grade 50 over match at the Bice Oval.

Josh Dell will be back out in the middle for the first time since Christmas in Mosman CC’s home New South Wales Premier Cricket first grade encounter with St. George at the Allan Border Oval.

Dell hit 98 in a second grade fixture against Parramatta immediately before the three week festive break.
