THE Dundas Cup has a new home at Dunkeld after Grampians thrashed College in the Bendigo Bank HDCA A grade Grand Final over the weekend.
The match was due to be decided over three days but the Eagles had had enough after only two, and conceded the match at the fall of the last Grampians wicket late on day two.
THE first day of the match dawned overcast, but the wicket had been covered since the Thursday night and stayed under those covers for all of Friday as the rain poured, giving the district the much needed follow up weather so craved for by the farmers.
Once the preparations had been completed by the curator, it was obvious that whichever captain won the toss would bat first, and so it was as Hamish Bailey called correctly for College and he and Heath Schmidt strode to the wicket to begin the hunt for the Dundas Cup.
These two batsmen have been the best performed for College all season and they needed to once again give the side a solid start.
They were in no hurry either, as the score mounted slowly against some good new ball bowling from Shane Ewing and Carl Joyce.
