Sutherland had a big win in the McDonald's Men's NSW Premier Cricket round 13 on Saturday at home.

Changed to a One Day match after the first round was washed out, Sutherland needed to make a statement after slipping down the Belvidere Cup ladder.

Hawkesbury won the toss and sent the home team in to bat- this was a mistake as openers Biviano and Williams launched into their attack with Biviano top-scoring with 81 off 96 deliveries.

It didn't get any easier for the Hawkesbury bowlers, with Tom Doyle finding his feet with a quick 70 off 70 before Sydney Sixers rep Ben Dwarshuis returned to cause some more punishment.

The score of 4/301 was always challenging and the visitors were skittled for 180 in the 40th over.

Biviano said if they could play that standard of cricket weekly, they would be higher on the ladder.

"It's promising; whilst we are a young team, we are aiming up, which is hopefully showing signs for a big season ahead next year."
