[CENTER][B]Ringwood vs Carlton at Melbourne Uni[/B][/CENTER][B][CENTER]Friday March 27 to Sunday March 29 2009(Reserve Day Monday March 30)[/CENTER][/B]

Both teams come into this game after contrasting semi final wins. Ringwood were 4/11 early before posting 277 against Prahran thanks to Tom Stray who made 127. Before they knocked over Prahran for 114 by taking 9/70 before lunch on Day 2 to give them a chance at back to back flags. While Carlton were forced to chase 380 to win off 90 overs against Fitzroy Doncaster and after struggling at 3/36 and 5/213, Evan Gulbis(165no) and Tim Welford(104no) added a club record 168 run unbeaten 6th wicket partnership to win the game and advance Carlton to their first 1st XI Grand Final for 24 years.

Incredibly this is the first meeting for these teams in the 2008/09 season. The teams last met in Round 15 of 2007/08 season (Feb 23,24 2008) at Ringwood. Ringwood 211(Stray 48,Gilmour 41,McTaggert 3/46,Welsford 3/48) lost to Carlton 241(Pilon 74,Buszard 44,Michael King 5/36).

Umpires: Bob Parry and Paul Reiffel (Emerg John Ward)

Teams are unchanged from last week.

Interestingly Ringwood are going in with the same 11 as last year's winning team. Should Ringwood win this will be the first time in premier cricket history where the same 11 has won the premiership in back to years.

The weather is looking good for the weekend.

For those following scores on the premier cricket website on the home page there will be an updated summary score box at the top right of the page. Also the Mycricket result page will also be updated about every 5 to 10 minutes during the match(Depending on progress of the game).

Really looking forward to it. It should be a great game of cricket starting at 11am tomorrow.

[B]Rams in command[/B]

The Rams were in a strong position against the Blues at stumps on the first day of the Premier Final at Melbourne Uni.

Carlton skipper Tim Welsford won the toss and batted, but the Blues lost Jake Hancock bowled by Drew McKay in the second over. It was Drew McKay's fourth over and the eighth of the day, however, in which he really inflicted most damage. With his second ball he had Michael Sheedy caught by Tom Stray at slip, with his fifth ball he bowled Nathan Pilon and, with his sixth, he trapped Evan Gulbis lbw.

Tim Buszard battled hard to try to resurrect the innings, occupying the crease for 229 minutes and 202 balls for his 62, but as wickets continued to fall at the other end, it was not until number eleven Chris Salm joined Buszard that the first significant partnership of the innings took place. Salm scored a valuable 30 not out and added 53 runs for the tenth wicket partnership, before leg-spinner Daniel King had Buszard caught behind by Joe Loorham cutting to end the innings for 159.

In reply, Ringwood went to stumps at 2/113, with David King (52no) and skipper Sean Flynn (18no) to resume tomorrow morning. After losing Daniel King early for a duck, Tom Stray helped David King take the score to 79 before nicking one to Nathan Pilon off Welsford for a polished 40.

[B]Rams close to winning flag[/B]

Ringwood are very close to winning back to back premierships after 2 days of Premier Cricket Grand Final at Melbourne Uni. Ringwood lasted until Tea before being bowled out for 264. David King made 87 and captain Sean Flynn made 50. Andrew Dickinson 3/45 and Tim Welsford 3/45 the best of the bowlers for the Blues.

Carlton had 36 overs to bat but struggled to 4/80 at the close still trailing by 25 runs. Tim Buszard made 24, Nathan Pilon will resume on 29 and Tim Ludeman on 4 in the morning. Matthew Gale was the best of the Rams bowlers with 3/16 from 12 overs.

A week is a long time in cricket for Carlton batsmen Evan Gulbis who made 163 not out in the semi final last week. This week he made a pair.

The match continues tomorrow from 11am.

Well done to the Rams on back to back premierships. The Cricket Victoria Awards night is on Tuesday Night at Crown Palladium. Here is the article from the Premier Cricket Website:

[B]Rams go back-to-back[/B]

Ringwood today won the VB Premier Final with a seven-wicket outright win over Carlton at Melbourne University. It was the first outright win in a Final since St Kilda defeated Essendon at the Albert Ground eight years ago.

Carlton resumed this morning on 4/80, but when Nathan Pilon was out to the second ball of the day and Tim Welsford followed in the next over, the match looked to be heading towards a finish by lunch. But Tim Ludeman (51) and Andrew Dickinson (54) combined for a 91-run seventh wicket stand, which saw the Blues through to 206, an overall lead of 101.

The early run out of Daniel King sent some tremors through Ringwood. David King (26) and Tom Stray (21no) looked untroubled until a second run out, David King backing up couldn't beat an Evan Gulbis deflection from short mid-off and it was 2/40. Sean Flynn (35) took the total to 84 before Nick Austin trapped him lbw, but there to be no fairy-tale finishes for the Blues as Stray and Brendan Walsh (17no) saw the Rams safely home.

It was Ringwood's second successive premiership after the breakthrough first win over the Cats last year. The Rams' Steve Gilmour was adjudged the John Scholes Medallist for his six wickets for the match, taking him to 46 wickets for the season - the most in the competition.
