Mitchell Perry picked up a four-wicket haul as Richmond bowled out Greenvale for 195 on Day 1 at Central Reserve North on Saturday. Krishna Padmanabhan and Adam Amin played out the 3-over spell safely as Tigers were 0/8 at stumps.
Having won the toss, Dom Matarazzo put the Kangaroos in. It didn’t take much time for the Tigers to strike with Perry snaring the first breakthrough in Luke Sandy. Marcus Berryman cashed in on the opening and sent Aiden Zammit back to the hut too.
Sri Lankan international Kaushal Silva and Connor Hayes rebuilt for the away side by putting together a 40-run stand for the third wicket. Just when it seemed like the pair would build on their groundwork, Perry, who was reintroduced for his second spell, had Silva squared up and caught behind for 35. Shortly after lunch, he also dismissed the opposition skipper Michael Stretton cheaply.
At 4/82, Greenvale were in need a partnership. Connor Hayes then found support in Bernard Kelly. However, the 32-run stand was cut short by Jack Trevethan, who conceded just 15 runs in his 12 overs (six maidens), with Hayes’ departure for 29.
It was Mitchell Edwards’ innings, which took Greenvale to the 200-run mark. While he did most of the scoring, Kelly and Liam Fitzsimmons hung in there with him. Edwards was well on his way to a well deserved fifty but Andrew Humphries castled him for 48.
Greenvale failed to add any significant contributions after Edwards’ fall and folded for 195.
Summary: Greenvale 195 (Edwards 48, Silva 35, Hayes 29; Perry 4/42, Berryman 2/34, Trevethan 1/15)
Monash Tigers 0/8 (Padmanabhan 5, Amin 3)
