Welcome to Denhams Road for the opening day’s play between Kooweerup and Pakenham – a rematch of last season’s decider.

The Demons have won the toss and elected to bat with Mark Cooper and Chris O’Hara opening against Chris Savage and Thom Jones.

 

1:10pm – Mark Cooper run out at the batsman’s end after a drive by Chris O’Hara to the rocket arm of Zac Chaplin. 1/1. Ben Spicer the new batsman.
