DENNIS Lillee says new pace sensation Josh Hazlewood can be an unplayable force during next year’s Ashes, after his debut against India.

    BAD light stopped play at the Gabba, but not before Steve Smith played a captain’s knock to help Australia work its way back into the contest.

    IT was the stuff of which dreams are made. Australian substitute fielder Marnus Labuschagne has taken an incredible short leg catch in the second Test.

    KEVIN Pietersen is set to earn up to $250,000 for his summer down under in the Big Bash — but is the star batsman worth the cash? Have your say!

    MELBOURNE have pulled off their biggest signing coup of the off-season, attracting rising young Bulldogs forward Dale Finucane after a release was agreed.

    Aug 02, 2010

    Warren Maynard, Melbourne Cricket Club greenkeeperThe club would like to congratulate Warren Maynard, greenkeeper of the MCC Bowls Section's greens at Swinburne Avenue and Glen Street as well as the MCC Croquet Section’s green also located at Glen Street, on being awarded the Victorian Greenkeepers Association’s (VGA), Greenkeeper of the Year. 

    After being nominated by his peers Warren was one of six finalists, with the award presented at the VGA’s Annual General Meeting on July 14. 

    The VGA aims to create an environment in which turf managers (specifically related to bowling clubs/greens) can network on turf management practices and issues. Warren is also the vice-president of the association. 

    To be eligible for the award, the recipient must be a member of the VGA, promote the industry and greenkeeping in general, support and offer advice to others, be highly respected amongst their peers and of course the award recognises the quality of the greens under their management. 

    The bowls and croquet sections are particularly grateful for the work Warren and apprentice Josh Ramsden put into the greens. 

    Congratulations, Warren!
