Double flags for BITS
JUST two hours after BITS reserves claimed a historic premiership against The Glen, BITS B-grade counterparts fought off a dogged Brothers to win its own decider.
Batting first on a hard Yaralla pitch, BITS made 150 after 50 overs with all-rounder Ky Hull making an unbeaten 28 while Rowan Murray chipped in with 22.
Brothers bowler Harpreet Singh was outstanding with a brilliant spell of 4-27 off his allotted 10 overs.
The game was for Brothers to win because while there was movement in the air, the ball played truly off the deck.
However the disciplined line and length from the BITS bowlers did not give the dangerous Brothers batsmen any length or width.
Brothers opener Rob Newman was the game's top scorer with a well-compiled 30 runs and next best for them was Manu Singh with 23.
All of the BITS bowlers took wickets.
Murray capped off a great match with 2-19 off six overs and he had plenty of mates. Lucas Hall and Dan Gelder snared 2-20 and 2-27 respectively.
BITS wicketkeeper Chris Dagistino took a ripping right-handed catch that sent Brendan Wyllie back to the pavilion for just two runs from 20 deliveries.
When Brothers slumped to 8-108, BITS smelt blood and went for the kill soon after.
