The Bacchus marsh Bulls continued their start-of-season winning streak in the Gisborne and District Cricket Association McIntyre Cup this Saturday against Lancefield, marking 4 for 4 in the season so far.

With 8-345 on the board after day one, the Bulls were always in the box seat to take the points.

Lancefield never looked likely and were bowled out for 150.

Bulls’ captain-coach Ben Robertson said it was another strong performance from the bowling attack.

“I think that our bowling is our strength,” he said.

“The score of 150 is the highest that had been scored against us. We know if we score over 200, in most games our bowlers will get the job done.”

Rhys Watson was the standout against the Tigers taking 6-55. Robertson said in the first four games there had been a real spread of standouts each game.

Watson and Madushanka Ekanayaka are both in the top 10 for wickets taken so far this season.

With the bat, Robertson is averaging 82 and James Lidgett averages 57.5 to both be in the top six run scorers.

Dennis O’Loughlin is also averaging 45.

“With both the batting and bowling we’re not relying on one person,” Robertson said. “There’s a spread of contributors.”
