Metchosin batsman Rohan Gowda did his best to keep his team’s innings active during Victoria and District Cricket Association play against the Islanders at the Metchosin pitch on Sunday.

The club’s team captain amassed 58 runs not out, including bashing a six-run blast out of the park boundary, but the locals’ total of 119 runs was overtaken by the Division 1 leading Islanders, who batted second.
