Steve Kourouche took 5-43 off 7.2 overs in 2nds on Saturday. It was his 117th grade match for the Club and the first time he has taken 5 wickets in an innings. He had previously taken 4 wickets in an innings twice, both in 5th Grade: 4-41 in 2012-13 and 4-81 in 2013-14. It was his second match in 2nd Grade, but the first time he had bowled in 2nds! Well done Steve – outstanding!!
