A vintage spell from former Australian fast bowler Doug Bollinger and a timely run out have combined to help Fairfield Liverpool to a 31-run win against Mosman – and move within one-point of the top six.

Declaring at their overnight total of 7-306, the Lions started strong with the ball picking up the key wicket of Daniel Hughes for 11.

However it was Param Uppal’s run out of centurion Patrick Pisel (100) that swung the game in the hosts favour after they reached 4-228. From there, Bollinger (5-61) took over taking the final four wickets to dismiss the visitors for 275.

The Lions made it two-from-two at the weekend with a commanding eight wicket win against Campbelltown-Camden in the Twenty20 Cup on Sunday.

In the absence of his brother, Harmon Sandhu took the new ball and picked up the key wicket of Daniel Hughes. He returned the figured of 1-37 off 13 overs.
