Bulldogs sink star-studded Sharks

In an amazing turnaround, the Bulldogs beat the Sharks on Sunday even more convincingly than the Sharks defeated them on Saturday. The difference was that Sunday was the quarter final of the One Day limited overs competition. Also, Sutherland was boosted on Sunday by former Test Star Shane Watson and Big Bash supremo Ben Dwarshuis. Bankstown batted first on Sunday and that man Daniel Solway continued his amazing run of success with a blistering 125 not out. He once again stole the limelight as he plundered 11 fours and two giant sixes and methodically tore apart the Sharks attack. Solway unleashed powerful drives and superb leg glances as he raced to his century and beyond. Sutherland wilt

Bulldogs keep heat on Sharks

Despite oppressive heatwave conditions the Bankstown Sports Bulldogs performed valiantly to dismiss Sutherland for 281 at Memorial. It was a diabolical toss for skipper Michael Stretton to lose but his lionhearted bowlers stuck to their task with dogged determination.

He plundered 20 boundaries plus four superb sixes and the home side could not contain his savage onslaught. Solway hammered the hapless bowlers to all parts of Mark Taylor Oval. The master stroke maker unleashed sizzling drives, classy square cuts and powerful pull shots as he raced to a century and beyond. Smith was j

Bulldogs' Smith and Taylor tame Warriors

The Bankstown Sports Bulldogs surged to victory at Memorial Oval versus the Blacktown Warriors last Saturday. Ben Taylor and Brendan Smith overpowered the Warriors with superb performances. Bankstown took the field and restricted the visitors to just 243. Blacktown found Ben Taylor with his probing spinners extremely hard to handle in the hot conditions. The Warriors batsmen were all at sea against Taylor who beat the bat repeatedly in a sensational spell. The crafty young spinner claimed 4-20 in his masterly 10 overs and is having a great season. A late rally got the Warriors to a useful 243 but the Bulldogs soon got barking in reply. All-rounder Mitch Brown always seems to be in the acti
