Top Picks

Corey Kelly surprisingly didn’t bat in the last game having scored 75 runs prior to that game. However, he picked up two wickets and also bowled a maiden in 5.2 overs he bowled. Dean Fry was decent in the last game scoring an unbeaten 40 and also picked up a wicket. Matt Hammond continues making an impact and scored 14 runs before picking up a wicket with the ball.

Christopher McEvoy is a decent batsman and an even better bowler. He picked up 3/18 in his 10-over spell in the last game against Tracy Village. Daniel Mylius hasn’t been consistent enough but a 30-run knock in the last outing must have given him confidence.

For the Darwin, Jacob Dickman has scored 97 runs so far in three matches he is played including 86 in the round 2 fixture. Luke Shelton is a very good all-rounder with 115 runs to his name in three outings and has also picked up six wickets. Luke Zanchetta is a decent and economical bowler and has picked up four wickets thus far. Connor Hawkins is also a brilliant bowler with five wickets to his name but he went wicketless in the last game.

Tom Briggs scored 38 runs in the last game batting at three and would look to make the most of his decent form now.  He has also picked up a couple of wickets. Willy Andrews opens the innings and scored 54 runs in the round 2 fixture but could only muster six runs in the round 3 game.
