The Moonee Valley contingent comprised our senior coach Vikash Chand, assistant coach Paresh Rathod, Under 16s player Joe Carroll, Arosha Perera and Vivek Rajababu.

Arosha – our Sri Lankan import in his second season at Moonee Valley – was also selected in the Willowfest team of the tournament. He scored 196 runs, with a top score of 86.

O’Malleys Panthers picked up $3000 as the prize for winning the top division – the third year in a row in which the team has taken out the honor.

Teams compete in three one-day 50-over games and two 30-over games over the four days of the carnival. 10/1/07
