By Shaun Kelly

Darley’s First XI finals hopes in the Ballarat Cricket
Association are still alive, with the Lions holding the upper
hand in their two-day clash with Ballarat-Redan after the
first day’s play on Saturday.
After dismissing the Two Swords for 149, Darley survived 14
overs at the end of play to be 0/15 heading into an important
second day’s play next Saturday at Darley Park.
Ben Longhurst was the chief destroyer with the ball, taking
5/41 from 21 overs, with Anurudda Rajapaksha and Roshan
Anuruddha taking two wickets each.
