ED BARNARD was in good form with the ball for Scarborough in Australia but his team endured mixed fortunes over the past two games.

The Worcestershire all-rounder was part of the side beaten by Midland Guildford in the semi-finals of the Western Australia Cricket Association Premier T20.

Scarborough then bounced back with victory over University in a WACA first grade 50-over encounter.

In the T20 match, Barnard took the new ball and removed opener Keaton Critchell on his way to the excellent figures (4-19) – by far the most economical by a Scarborough bowler.

A century off 54 balls by Austin Thomas with five sixes and nine fours helped Midland Guildford reach 191 for six.

Barnard went in number three and was dismissed for three by Surrey all-rounder Scott Borthwick as Scarborough were bowled out for 150 in 18.3 overs.

Against University, Barnard struck with successive deliveries in dismissing Chris Sabburg and Viv Paver during his first spell of five overs, reducing his opponents to 11 for three in pursuit of a 217 target.

He also bowled the 24th and 26th overs and finished with 7-16. University could only manage 121 all out from 34.3 overs.

Earlier, Barnard had been run out for 11 batting at number four as Scarborough totalled 216 for eight.

Ben Twohig made a patient 23 for Southern Districts on the opening day of the South Australia Cricket Association Premier Cricket West End men’s first grade match with Port Adelaide.

The Worcestershire spinner went in at number four and was at the crease for 88 deliveries and 100 minutes.

He was fifth out at 156 as Scarborough reached 237 all out from 86.4 overs in their first innings with seven of their batsmen registering scores between 23 and 48.

Port Adelaide reached 27 for one from seven overs by stumps with Twohig bowling one over for one run. The match will be concluded next weekend.
