It was the cricketers who came out on top in the annual Pink Stumps T20 match between Ashfield Cricket Club and Sunbury Kangaroos Football Club on Sunday.

Having lost last year, Ashfield were keen to make an amends and level the ledger between the two sides at 2-2.

The day, which  raises money for the McGarth Foundation, was attended by more than 180 people.

It was disastrous start for Ashfield who crumbed to 6-17. A 90-run partnership between Corey Woolley and Craig Ballinger rescued Ashfield’s innings as they pushed the score to 135.

Matthew Leonard was the star with the ball for the Kangaroos taking four wickets.

The Kangaroos could only manage 110, handing Ashfield a 25-run win.

Kangaroos skipper Daniel Gregory was a lone hand with the bat making 31.

Matt Bulless and Brad Fleming took two wickets each for Ashfield.

The two clubs also held a celebrity T10 game including veterans, young members and women before the main match.
