Premier Cricket: Greenvale Kangaroos in debut win

Daniel Salpietro and James Lidgett shared a century stand as Greenvale Kangaroos won for the first time in Victorian Premier Cricket at the weekend.

The newly merged entity made 4-249 to chase down Frankston Peninsula’s 4-246 at AH Butler Oval.

Matt Gapes (95) and Matt Chasemore (90no) gave Greenvale the run-around by putting on 172 for the third Frankston Peninsula wicket.

But Lidgett (75) and Salpietro (80no) then enjoyed a 128-run stand of their own for Greenvale’s third wicket, setting the foundation for victory.
