2nd XI – D’Rozario, Parker’s 110-run stand sets up comfortable victory against Ringwood

Thanks to half-centuries by Jonathan D’Rozario and Will Parker, Richmond sealed a comfortable five-wicket victory against Ringwood at Central Reserve North on Sunday 10 November.


Skipper Greg Connor asked Ringwood to bat on a wicket which assisted the pace bowlers early on. Liam Fernando and Josh Carroll exploited the conditions to Tigers’ advantage as the away side lost four wickets before the end of first powerplay.


After the early setbacks, Angus Adamson and Nathan Lester recovered the Ringwood’s innings with a stubborn 36-run stand before the latter was castled by Tim Goodman. Dylan Tibballs hung in there with Adamson and played a handy innings of 34 to arrest the slide.


The introduction of Tobias Keast, however, dented Jordan Ludgater’s innings further as they failed to find any momentum in the ‘slog overs’. He claimed four wickets in his 10-over spell and conceded only 43 runs as Ringwood posted 9/189 in the first innings.


Krishna Padmanabhan and Yash Pednekar’s watchful approach at the start of the chase meant that Ringwood had to wait eight overs for their first breakthrough. Ringwood maintained the pressure as Tigers lost three more wickets by the end of 20th over, with the score reading 4/48.


D’Rozario and Parker began slowly, absorbing the pressure applied by Henderson, who bowled three maidens in a row. But as the pair found their tempo, the runs started to flow after they brought up their 50-run stand in the 30th over.


D’Rozario got to his milestone in the 35th over. A couple of overs later, the 100-run stand for the fifth wicket was completed as well.


Tyson Freeman provided a glimmer of hope for Ringwood with D’Rozario’s wicket but Parker and Connor, who hit the winning runs in the 45th over, kept Tigers in the driver’s seat.  


1st XI – Ringwood beat Tigers by seven wickets


Michael Topp, David King and Sam Beer scalped eight wickets in total as Richmond were bowled out for 116 against Ringwood at Russell Lucas Oval on Sunday, 10 November. The Patrick Ashton-led side chased down the total in 27 overs and with seven wickets in hand.


The Tigers got off to an iffy start after losing four wickets for 31. But Marcus Berryman and Andrew Humphries scored 36 and 23 respectively to provide some stability. However, once Berryman was dismissed Ringwood took control of the innings.


Opener Thomas Rogers anchored Ringwood’s innings with a 69-run knock off 80 deliveries. He found support in Jackson Freeman (23), who eventually took the home side over the line.

Adam Amin smashes 137 as Monash Tigers 2nd XI finish Day One on top

It was down to Camberwell Magpies’ opener Rishab Guddadamane and Jacob Murphy to see off a day that belonged to Monash Tigers as Adam Amin and Yash Pednekar clubbed a 192-run opening stand at Central Reserve North on Saturday 26 October.  

The Magpies started on a good note and kept asking questions with the new ball. Mark Dwyer bowled four maidens in his first seven-over spell while Jess Petherick induced an edge off Adam Amin in the fourth over. But it was put down at gully when the opener was on 3. Amin cashed in on the reprieve and took the attack to the opposition, completing his 50 off just 57 balls. While Amin played the role of the aggressor, 18-year old Yash Pednekar anchored the other end with clever rotation of strike and impeccable defence. When rain forced an early lunch, the Tigers were 0/82. 

Amin resumed his innings in similar fashion in the second session. There were no nerves as he closed in on the three-figure mark. He entered the 90s with a lovely straight drive over the bowler’s head and reached the milestone with a boundary through covers. Shortly later, Pednekar brought up his 50 as well. 

Leg spinner Daniel Scholz broke the 192-run opening stand for the Magpies when Amin was caught by Jacob Murphy at point for 137. Pednekar, too, was dismissed at 66 by Scholz. 

With a solid foundation, Andrew Humphries and Kyle Viccars stitched together a 54-run stand. It was Humphries who came out all guns blazing, scoring 11 boundaries and a six in his 50-ball 64-run knock. The Tigers put themselves in an enviable position at tea, with the score reading 2/270.

After the break, Shubham Bhargave stood up for Camberwell Magpies as he castled Viccars for 20. Camberwell built on the small opening as Bhargave sent Humphries and Will Parker back to the hut in quick succession. The off spinner picked up a five-wicket haul after the Tigers lost two more wickets (Aaron Cross and Jonathan D’Rozario) in one over. James Rosewarne chipped in with the wicket of Bailey Moon, as the Magpies reduced the home team from 3/280 to 8/295. 

Greg Connor and Josh Carroll, however, halted the slide with staunch defence. The pair eventually played out 97 balls for their 54-run ninth wicket stand before Connor declared the innings at 8/349, leaving an awkward 10 over spell for the Magpies’ openers. Josh Carroll drew first blood for Tigers, trapping Daniel Rawson LBW for 10 as Magpies finished the day at 1/32. 



Monash Tigers bowl out Camberwell Magpies for 254 

In the 1sts, Monash Tigers put together a collective bowling effort to bowl out Camberwell Magpies for 254 at Camberwell Sports Ground on Saturday. 

Marcus Berryman, Dom Matarazzo and Riley Mark took four, three and two wickets respectively. But the Tigers found resistance in Alec Smith, who scored made a valiant contribution of 93, batting at number 7. Matthew Whittaker, too, played a handy innings of 34.


Even-stevens after a rain-interrupted day

Opener Samuel Windisch remained unbeaten on 87 as Camberwell Magpies ended the day at 4/189 against Monash Tigers at Munro Avenue.

Ashley Becker picked up two wickets for the Tigers while Griffin McComb (53) and John Mackinnon (35) played around Windisch as the rain interrupted day finished evenly poised. 

Windsich will resume of the innings with Hamish Burrill, who is yet to score. 



Monash Tigers reduce Camberwell Magpies to 9/198 

At Central Reserve South, Monash Tigers skipper Tyler Walsh and Xavier McGrath set the tone for the home team picking up three wickets each as Camberwell Magpies finished the day at 9/198. 

The Tigers kept picking up wickets at regular intervals as Magpies struggled to put together partnerships. Dhruv Redhu top-scored for the away team with 58, while Adrian Vidajic made 41. 

Max Burn (1) and Anton Ponnamperuma (2) are the unbeaten batsmen for the Magpies. 

Rain plays spoilsport in Monash Tigers-Melbourne Ramblers clash

Jack Iverson scored 51 off 70 and the rest of the players batted around him as Monash Tigers’ academy team scored 6/168 in 45 overs against Melbourne Ramblers at Central Reserve South on Sunday.

The game, however, was cut short due to rain. Both the teams shared equal points with Ramblers’ score reading 1/23 in 6.4 overs.

William Arras Johnston O.A.M.

Bill Johnston came to Richmond from a small country town in Victoria’s Western District making his senior debut in 1939-40 as a result of capturing 48 wickets in the club’s second and third elevens.

The 190 cm bowler known as “Big” Bill spent 20 years at Richmond and left in 1959 with an incredible tally of 452 wickets from 132 senior games, the second highest tally of dismissals in the clubs history, and he played a major role in Richmond’s first Premiership win of 1946-47.

Bill’s long left arm delivered swing, seam, cut or spin to suit the conditions, and with such skill that Sir Donald Bradman rated him “Australia’s finest left- arm bowler”.

He would normally field in the outfield and had such a strong throw that during his time playing baseball for the Richmond Cricketers, threw a ball 375 feet 6.5 inches (approx. 115 Metres), a junior World Record.

During his time at Punt Road he was Club Champion twice, won the Bowling Award a record equalling 6 times and was a popular captain of the first eleven from 1955 to 1959.

Bill played 56 first class games for Victoria capturing 192 wickets in his 10 year career of 142 games, and took a total of 554 first class wickets. The scoreboard at the Punt Road ground carries his name along with that of his great Richmond, Victorian and Australian team mate Doug Ring.

With Australian teams he toured England in 1948 (Taking 103 wickets) and 1953. He performed with his normal skill for Australia in South Africa and the West Indies. In 40 Test matches for Australia he took 160 wickets and to this day remains as Richmond’s greatest International bowler.

During his time in the game Bill Johnston was recognised by team mates and opponents as one of the most happy and popular players in world cricket.

In 1954 Bill was granted Life Membership of the Richmond Cricket Club, he was selected in both the Victorian and Richmond Teams of the Century and inducted as an inaugural member of the Tigers’ Hall of Fame in 2009, and then in 2017 he was awarded the Club’s highest honour and now becomes the club’s second Immortal.
