In 13 matches last season Luke Ohrynowsky made 296 runs. After two games this season, the all-rounder has already racked up 199 runs after notching his first ton in first grade hitting 141 in Fairfield Liverpool’s total of 8-378 against Campbelltown-Camden at Rosedale Oval.
He combined with stand-in skipper Harmon Sandhu (108) – who also made career ton No.1 after scoring only 166 runs last – for a 240-run fourth wicket stand to break the previous highest fourth wicket stand of 191 (first grade) and 195 (all grades) for the Lions.
Missing three players to state duty – Doug Bollinger, Gurinder Sandhu and Param Uppal –and with three players making their debuts – Zach Johns, Damien Aviet and Peter Zybrands, the pair came together at 3-46 and guided the team into a position of strength with a partnership that lasted more than three hours. The Lions’ bowlers will look to complete consecutive wins to start the year with a strong performance with the ball on Saturday.
