On Sunday 14th February 2010 the PCOA Victoria cricket team took on the VBCA’s national championship winning team in the annual cricket match at Kooyong Reserve. This year we decided on the very popular 20/20 format. The PCOA’s Captain “Big Kev” won the toss and sent the VBCA into bat. With many of the team playing for the first time & wearing vision impaired glasses, we took to the field with an air of confidence, having won the trophy for the past 2 years.

The VBCA made 9 for 101 off their 20 overs with the PA Robinson retiring after making 20 runs (18 balls) and SA Peucker made 19 (10 balls). Best of the PCOA bowlers was Leon Doyle 1/13 off 3 overs, Russ Masterton 1/7 off 2 overs and Big Kev wrapped up the innings with 1/8 off 2 overs.

After a short break, the PCOA Vic team went out to bat. Father and son, Carl & Patrick Nunan respectively, got us off to a great start with a partnership of 14 before Carl was bowled trying to smack the metal rattles out of the ball. Patrick was the best of our bats with 18 not out, followed by Andrew Sutherland with 11 and Patrick Mulcahy with 10.

We finished with 8/87 off our 20 overs. Best of the VBCA bowling was S. Peucker 2/2 off his 2 overs.

So for the first time in the 3 year history, the VBCA won the Blind Ducks Perpetual Trophy. Well deserved Man of the Match was Scotty Peucker with his 20 runs, 2 wickets and great fielding.

We look forward to the challenge again in the 2010/11 season and have accepted the over by the Ferntree Gully Cricket Club to host the game.
