On a perfect night for cricket, the second instalment of the Dandenong District Cricket Association (DDCA) junior girls competition kicked off on Tuesday 29 October at Edwin Flack Reserve to great success.

The tournament – which will run over 11 weeks – has expanded greatly in the last year, with five teams now turning into eight, with Berwick Blue, Heinz Southern Districts, Berwick White, Silverton, Lynbrook Orange, Narre South Navy, Lynbrook Blue and Narre South all showing some terrific signs on the night.

Heinz Southern Districts (3/119) opened its account with a terrific win against Berwick Blue (3/67), Silverton (0/190) could be the team to beat after an impressive opening victory against Berwick White (68), with Kamya Mishra absolutely starring with 50 not out and 6/10 off four overs.

In the remaining games, Lynbrook Orange (0/109) defeated Narre South Navy (0/92), but the Narre South Gold (0/133) side managed to snare the points against Lynbrook Blue (0/78).
