From taking wickets at Wisbech to dismissing Sri Lanka - former March overseas star shines in tour game
A FORMER overseas player at March Town Cricket Club is celebrating one of the best performances of his career today after taking five wickets... against SRI LANKA.
Steve Seymour, who played for March in the 2008/09 seasons, helped his Australian state side Victoria II to a shock 23-run victory over the tourists, who are preparing for an international triangular series with Australia and India.
The pace bowler took 5-52 from his 10 overs – claiming the prize scalp of world-class wicket-keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara in the process.
Victoria had earlier struggled to 172-9 from their 50 overs, with Seymour contributing seven runs.
But the all-rounder soon turned the game on its head, blowing away the Sri Lankan top order as they crumbled to 149 all out.
