Last over thriller in Robyn Hookes Shield match

THE DonateLife Everyday Heroes retained the Robyn Hookes Shield after another last-over victory against the Transplant Cricket Australia Lucky Stars on Sunday.

The 25-over-a-side-game at Canterbury Park was played to help raise awareness for organ donation, with the Everyday Heroes sneaking over the line by four runs.

The Everyday Heroes compiled 4-159 after being sent into bat.

Brett Scholes (25 n.o.), Dallas Gill (23 n.o.), Melbourne Stars' all-rounder Alex Keath (22 n.o.) and Damian Drum (21) led the scoring for the Everyday Heroes.

Daniel Smith proved a surprise packet with the ball for the Lucky Stars. Known as the wicket-keeper for the Sydney Sixers, Smith picked up 2-16 bowling his spinners.

The Everyday Heroes' score of 159 proved just enough as they restricted the Lucky Stars to 4-155 in their run-chase.

Steve Arthy (24), Smith (23 n.o.) and Peter Welsh (22 n.o.) batted well for the Lucky Stars in what was a game where the organ awareness message was far more important than the result.
