Archant

James Rowswell was the man with the golden arm as Hales and Loddon A completed a quickfire demolition job at Winterton.

Rowswell recorded stunning figures of eight for 15 from 8.2 overs as H&L made light work of their opponents at Hambrook Oval.

After Sri Lankan recruit Usuru (eight overs 2 for 8) removed the openers, including renowned anchorman Brynley Clarke Rowswell took centre stage.

His medium-pace inswinging yorkers seemed laser guided as the next eight wickets tumbled — six of the victims clean bowled. The remarkable haul included a perfect hat-trick as the fourth, fifth and sixth wickets were bowled leg stump, middle stump and off stump.

H&Lcontrived to lose four wickets in pursuit of the meagre total of 25. Captain sensible James Buckingham guided his team to victory in the sixth over with an unbeaten 10. PJ Waylands Minibuses and Taxis Man of the Match: James Rowswell.
