Weekend warriors from the Perth Cricket Association (PCA), the Western Australian Suburban Turf Cricket Association (WASTCA) and the South Metropolitan Cricket Association (SMCA) battled it out on the hallowed turf of the WACA in the Veterans final and the Seniors final.

PCA won their sixth straight Cricket West Veterans Cup by seven wickets against WASTCA

After winning the toss and electing to bat the WASTCA were restricted to just 7-119 from their 20 overs thanks largely to an outstanding performance from man of the match Mitch Hardy who ripped through WASTCA’s top order taking 4-7 from his four overs.

The WASTCA’s Travis Rawlins was best with the bat, making 60 runs off 49 deliveries.

The PCA cruised to victory, chasing down the target of 120 in the 17th over.

WASTCA won the toss again in the next clash and had no hesitation in electing to bat.

Former Sri Lankan international Suresh Perera whacked 63 from just 28 deliveries to lead his team to a very competitive total of 5-162 from their 20 overs.

The SMCA fought hard in their run chase but ultimately fell short by 28 runs, gifting the WASTCA their fourth Cricket West Seniors Cup on the trot.

WASTCA’s Thomas Kujawski beat home Perera for Player of the Match award after running through the SMCA top-order to record figures of 3-18 from four overs.

Cricket West Chairman Tim Park said the finals day was a huge success.

“We’ve had a tight competition all year, and it was great that the final could be played at the WACA,” Park said.

“We were able to attract the very best players from their associations because of the opportunity to play at the WACA so the standard of cricket was very high.

“We’re hoping to do it all again next year and we thank the WACA and all its employees for the great opportunity to play at the home of WA cricket.”
