Saturday side through to the big dance

Maccabi AJAX’s Saturday XI are through to the Mercantile C South Grand Final after beating Gunbower United by two wickets in a tense Semi Final clash at Fawkner Park.

Needing 169 to win, No.10 batsman Ben Miller came to the crease at 8/153 with five overs to play and quickly put the game to bed, striking four boundaries in seven balls to guide his side to a thrilling victory.

Middle order batsman Joel Hamilton anchored the innings with a match-winning unbeaten knock of 56.

Classy opener Ryan Fisher hit six boundaries on his way to an important 35.

Joel spoke with J-Air's 'On the Ball' on Monday night. Listen back here. 

Earlier, skipper David Fayman backed up his cameo knock of 22 claiming 4/27 from his allotted nine overs, while youngster Corey Zielinski chipped in with 2/32.


The Jackas will play the winner of this weekend’s Preliminary Final between National and Gunbower.

The Grand Final will be played on March 25 at Cordner Oval, Fawkner Park from 11am.
