The eighth annual Black Stump cricket day was held last Sunday (12/2) with Kinglake stepping up to hosting duties after Flowerdale pulled out at the last minute.
The Kinglake Cricket Club stepped up to hosting duties. Marysville, Strathewen and Kinglake – all towns severely affected by Black Saturday – faced eight overs each in the Super 8 cricket format with Strathewen winning the final by 10 runs.
On a day that was held for the spirit of all, with the funds raised being split equally between all participating cricket clubs. It was a sea of green and gold, being the club colours of all participating teams, with some non-cricketers, such as Mick Chrystie also participating.
Strathewen retain the Black Stump trophy after also winning last year.
Marysville 3-55 (4 overs)
