A 293 run stand between Isaiah Snell and Sam Truloff capped off a crushing victory over Redlands after a week 1 bowling masterclass from Paddy Dooley. Snell and Truloff put the Redlands bowlers to the sword after resuming on day 2 only 40 runs in arrears. After the pair polished off the victory they then showed great patience mixed in with aggressive stroke play. Truloff was the first to bring up triple figures for the 5th time this season and Snell quickly followed after lunch with a sweep shot off Marnus Labuschagne to register his 2nd ton of the season. He was then dismissed for 119 halfway through the second session. Truloff continued on to register a maiden double century just before the tea break and was out on the stroke of tea for a whopping 219. Wests declared at tea on 5 – 422 and had a crack at redlands with the ball to try and grab some bonus points. Wests took 5 wicket with youngster Joe Fry taking 3 wickets and Darcy Murphy taking a screamer of a catch at long off running around from long on. With the victory wests also claimed the Graeme Kersey Shield – a shield in honour of Graeme Kersey who played for both East (Now Redlands) and Wests in the 90’s who sadly passed away in a car accident in 1997.
