Lions On The Prowl with

Back-To-Back Wins
Darley Cricket Club
By Todd Whelan

Former West Indian international Danza Hyatt has starred

in his debut with the Darley Lions First XI, leading the club
to an emphatic eight-wicket win over (then) third placed
Golden Point at Darley Park last Saturday.
The Calypso King smashed an unbeaten 76 off just 56 balls,
including five fours and two huge sixes to earn the unofficial
man of the match title.
It wasn’t that long ago the 35-year old was mixing it with
the world’s best on tour with his native West Indies. Hyatt
played the last of his five career T-20 internationals against
Australia back in August 2012. Household names the ilk of
David Warner, Shane Watson, the Hussey brothers and Brett

the visitors were sent into bat and toiled their way to a com-
