WA Premier Cricket 

Team Lists and Previews – Round 5

Saturday 20 & 27 October
2 Day Game – 11.40am Start

Bayswater-Morley (13th) v Willetton (3rd) at Hillcrest Lower:
D Gibbons-D Trigg
Bayswater-Morley: Liam O'Connor(c), Aaron Todd, Robert Guy, Mitchell Todd, Manuel Hunwick, Jonty Wilde, Ross Loiacono, Steve Tompsett, James Wainman, Jake Lewis, Joshua Fontana
Willetton: Cameron Bancroft(c), Iszak Milentis, Aaron Hardie, D'Arcy Short, Sean Brennan, Kallen Bond, James Godfrey, Alex Hepburn, Shayne Wornes, Brennan Wilson, Chris Lagana, Matthew Hanna, Nic Geisler, Simon Mackin, Abdur Chheena

Milestones: Jonty Wilde (BM) about to pass 100 wickets, Sean Brennan (W) about to pass 1000 runs.

Preview: Bayswater-Morley lost a thrilling match to Scarborough by one run in Round 4, while Willetton was washed out in its match against Melville. A massive score of 85 to Mitchell Todd last round could see Willetton’s vast array of bowlers target the big hitter, as limiting his influence will be key to the outcome of this match.

Claremont-Nedlands (1st) v South Perth (12th) at Cresswell Park:
N Johnstone-L Lindsay
Claremont-Nedlands: Nicholas Hobson(c), Jacob Whiteaker, Jackson Edmondstone, Bradley Hope, Tim David, Joel Paris, Daniel Turkich, Haydan Morton, Matthew Kelly, Christopher Simpson, Thomas May
South Perth: Chris Chellew(c), Hugh Brown, Nicholas Mitchell, Brandon Guest, Keaton Spencer-Wright, Braydon Meuleman, Brooke Guest, David Cleary, Darius D'Silva, Tom Banton, Hilton Cartwright, Tasman Harris

Milestones: -

Preview: Both sides were washed out in Round 4. The Tigers have wasted no time in returning to the top of the ladder in Season 2018-19, while South Perth haven’t quite reached the form of last season just yet. South Perth’s Alex Bevilaqua, Darius D’Silva and Chris Chellew will need to have a big impact with the ball if their side are to blunt the Tigers batting line up and steal an upset victory.

Gosnells (11th) v Rockingham-Mandurah (6th) at Sutherlands Park 1:
M Hall-A Khan
Gosnells: Matthew Leipold(c), Timothy Hale, Daniel Payne, Ben Green, David Roberts, Brodee Foster, David Thomason, Jeremy McFarlane, Jacob Panetta, Liam Duffield, Chris Prescott
Rockingham-Mandurah: Craig Simmons(c), Vincent Poller, Tyler Robertson, James Bracey, Dane Ugle, Damien Burrage, Aaron Burrage, Nathan Hutchison, Adam France, Leon Coombs, Joel Marion

Milestones: Chris Prescott (G) about to pass 100 wickets.

Preview: Both sides were washed out in Round 4. Rockingham-Mandurah has started the season in good touch, getting solid performances from a different group of players each round. Dane Ugle has been in fantastic form with the bat, so Matthew Leipold will need to devise a plan to limit his influence.

Joondalup (15th) v University (2nd) at Iluka Sports Complex 1:
J Paterson-D Skinn
Joondalup: Jaron Morgan(c), Garrick Morgan, Jake Zsilinszky, Clinton Hinchliffe, Josh Inglis, Tim Zsilinszky, Zak Birchall, Josh Anderson, Joe Inglis, Brayden Thompson, Harry Larmett
University: William Bosisto(c), Matthew Birrell, Viv Paver, Christopher Sabburg, Mitchell Drennan, Rex Strickland, Bailey Richards, Joshua Mason, Sean Stuart, Will Jacks, David Moody

Milestones: -

Preview: Both sides were washed out in Round 4. Joondalup are stranded at the bottom end of the ladder without a win this season, while University has been in fine form. The Centurions need to find support for the Morgan brothers if they are to post a defendable total and avoid another disappointing loss.

Midland-Guildford (16th) v Mount Lawley (9th) at Lilac Hill 1:
C Pelpola-A Micenko
Midland-Guildford: Ashley Mucciarone(c), Mark Rice, Sam Evans, Andrew McBrine, Keaton Critchell, Hudson Knight, Hayden Cobley, Austin Thomas, Zade Reynolds-Harris, Matthew Olsen, Zac Howard
Mount Lawley: Callum Taylor(c), James Newnham, Dylan Sharman, Jay Chislett, Liam Purdy, Corey Evans, Justin Kandiah, Ethan Petta, Andrew Bottega, Mohamed Ijaz, Gurkeerat Pabla

Milestones: -

Preview: Both sides were washed out in Round 4. Midland-Guildford has struggled in both components of the game so far this season, struggling to post a winning score and not being able to defend the scores it does make. While the Hawks haven’t been easy beats at all in recent times, a full team performance from Midland-Guildford could see it kickstart its season.

Perth (4th) v Scarborough (7th) at Fletcher Park East:
J Hewitt-M Sasic
Perth: Luke Jury(c), Jacob Snadden, Josh Nicholas, Jacob Van Galen, Sean Roberts, Tom Scollay, Alex Calmy, Jack Baker, Jordan Mast, Jonathan Wells, Joel Curtis, Kyle Gardiner
Scarborough: Nicholas Maiolo(c), Jacob Johnston, Jeremy Boyle, Liam Stevens, Luke McQuade, Liam Knight, Lochie Hardy, Lance Morris, Jacob Carr, Cody Rose, Samuel Moylan, Josh Philippe

Milestones: Dain Moreton (P) about to pass 2000 runs, Jacob Johnston (S) passed 1000 runs.

Preview: Perth fell to Subiaco Floreat by six wickets in Round 4, while Scarborough defeated Bayswater-Morley, in the only two matches that weren’t washed out. Scarborough looks to have turned its fortunes around so far this season, sitting seventh with a two and two record. New skipper Nicholas Maiolo has been in fine touch with the bat and the battle between him and Perth’s own run scoring machine Dain Moreton will be one to watch. 

Subiaco Floreat (5th) v Melville (10th) at Floreat Park Oval:
T Rann-F Davis
Subiaco Floreat: Christopher Hansberry(c), Aaron Lilly, Joshua Parker, Ashley Blake, Calum How, Jason Behrendorff, Geremy Fatouros, Hamish McKenzie, Lucas Martin, Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green, Andrew Holder
Melville: Sean Terry(c), Drew Porter, Thomas Kerr-Sheppard, Ryan Duffield, Mark Turner, Brad Turner, Blake Reed, Fraser Hay, Tom Smith, Andrew Needham, Usman Qadir

Milestones: Chris Hansberry (SF) about to pass 350 wickets.

Preview: Subiaco Floreat defeated Perth by six wickets in Round 4, while Melville’s match against Willetton was washed out. It is tough to get a read on these two sides after last week’s results, but a reshuffled batting line for the Storm looks to have given Drew Porter a new lease on life, with the batsman top scoring for his side in Rounds 1 and 2. Chris Hansberry will be making sure his bowlers quell the influence of Porter if the Lions are to emerge victorious.

Fremantle (8th) v Wanneroo (14th) at Stevens Reserve West:
J Buscall-M Kovalevs
Fremantle: Ashton Turner(c), Brayden Sutton, Ross Macauley, Daniel Kennedy, Sam Whiteman, Chris Davenport, Jhye Richardson, Jake Carder, Zach Ferris, Josh Chojnowski, Matthew Micale
Wanneroo: Christian Smith(c), Travis Birt, Robert Richards, Kyle Millar, Jack Cattrall, Mathew Dzodzos, Matthew Spoors, Stuart Thompson, Mitchell Mcgee, Christopher Quelch, Caiden Eaton

Milestones: Jake Carder (F) about to pass 2000 runs, Stuart Thompson (W) personal best score 54 on debut.

Preview: Both sides were washed out in Round 4. Although Wanneroo hasn’t won a match yet, they have been able to post some impressive totals and look to be on the right track after a less than ideal season in 2017-18. The Roos also look to have unearthed a gem in Stuart Thompson, who scored 54 on debut. Fremantle will need to stop the Roos’ excitable youth and score heavily themselves to put the pressure on Wanneroo’s young squad.
