2021/22 Women’s Premier Cricket season review: Plenty Valley

WE have come to the end of yet another Victorian Women’s Premier Cricket season, full of highs and lows. Now the season has finished, let us take a look back at how the eight clubs fared across the whole season, and how things went since their mid-season report cards.

Today we look at Plenty Valley, who had a less than ideal campaign in 2021/22.

Things could not have gone much worse for the Bats this season, at least in terms of results.

They did not win a single game, and the only points they registered came from a washed out fixture back in Round 1.

Not only did they go winless, but they also conceded a bonus point in each outing.

But the Bats never gave up and continued to improve as the season wore on, putting on bigger totals in the last month.

Top Performers

Although there were not a whole lot of runs put on the board by Plenty Valley’s batters this year, let us take a look at who managed to hold their own with the stick.

Top of the tally is Jasmine Nevins. The top order batter made 260 runs across the season at an average of 28.89. She made one 50 this season, which was her highest score of 54.

Next up was Jessie Hulet, who notched up 152 runs across the season at an average of 13.82.

Aanliya Cheeran, Navleen Sandhu, Anusha Joshi and Ribhya Syan were the only other Plenty Valley batters to make more then 100 runs across their campaigns, which is representative of how tough the going was for the Bats this season.

Looking at the bowlers, despite the results each week, plenty of wickets were still taken by Plenty Valley’s attack.

Cheeran was the pick of Plenty Valley’s bowlers this season, and the only one to hit double figures in the wickets column. She finished the season with figures of 8/309 off her 85 overs, which included 10 maidens.

Syan took eight wickets for the season, as did Jane Riley, while Amelie Sibilin and Hulett both took four wickets.

Where to from here?

Well, the only way is up for the Bats. They have a lot to improve on in the off season to become a more competitive unit, and that kind of opportunity-based approach is what the off-season should be used for.
