Pinjarra’s top order fired on all cylinders to lead the side to a win in the Peel Premier League Twenty20 grand final over Singleton on Saturday afternoon.
Only four batsmen were required to tally up a whopping 200 runs, with Jamie Lee and Kim Eddy putting in stirring performances to help the Tigers take the crown.
Opening the batting, Lee showed his class in the short form of the game whacking a brilliant 82 runs from just 50 deliveries to earn man of the match honours.
The star batsman found the boundary rope on 10 occasions, seven going for maximums.
He was supported in the Tiger’s initial stand by Craig Jones, who tallied his own 54 as the duo opened the game with a 132-run partnership before Lee was caught out.
Singleton seemed to be gaining whatever control they could on the Tigers’ run rate near the end of the innings, but Eddy arrived at the crease and blew it wide open once again.
The fourth-in-line showed no restraint as he unleashed a barrage of sixes, smashing five out of the park to finish 41 not out from a mere 15 deliveries.
His last-minute blast led Pinjarra to 2/200 by the end of their innings, a chase Singleton was not up for.
Danny Woollard sent the first ball racing to the boundary for four, but a wicket soon after sent Pinjarra into celebration mode.
Tim Hutchison accounted for 33 of Singleton’s runs, and Ian Bowes did his best to help with 26, but there was nothing the Irwinians could do to stop Pinjarra from taking out the 2017/18 Peel Premier League crown.
Joseph Duxbury shone with the ball in hand for the Tigers, taking three wickets as the side dismissed Singleton on 129 in the 17th over.
Patrick Gorman took three catches in the field.
Teams will now turn their attention back to the Peel Cricket Association’s regular 50-over season, which will play out its final round this weekend.
The top four is already set as they gear up for the last hit out before the post-season, with Waroona, Singleton, Mandurah and South Mandurah to play in the finals.
