Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts sit top of ladder on two wins

The Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts are sitting on top of the Sydney Premiership ladder on the back of two dominant wins in the opening rounds of the NSW Premier Cricket Competition.

A solid preseason has paid dividends in the early rounds with the first grade side defeating both Mosman and the University of NSW cricket clubs in convincing fashion.

Ghosts skipper Jarrad Burke celebrated his 250th appearance for the club with a half century against Mosman, while all-rounder Luke Webb did the damage with the ball, claiming 4/42 in the one-day match played at Raby.

Round two against UNSW was reduced due to rain, with the first day's play completely abandoned at Daceyville.

Returning on Saturday, the Ghosts won the toss and sent the students in to bat. Ingleburn's Tanveer Sangha completely destroyed their order after Webb and Burke had removed the top order.

Sangha, who is currently in the Australian under-19 and Sydney Thunder squads, spun through the remaining batsmen, finishing with 6/33 from 17 overs. Chasing down the UNSW total of 119 proved little trouble for the Ghosts, who lost three wickets in 25 overs to enjoy an early mark.

Jaydyn Simmons and Aaron Yabsley both scored 35 runs with the students providing little defence.

Ghosts coach Graeme Smith was pleased to claim the back to back opening wins acknowledging that there is still a lot of cricket left in the summer. Graeme was also quick to praise the Ghosts 2nd grade team who are also unbeaten.

Ghosts host Sutherland at Raby this weekend.
