SA claims Under 17 National title

24 January 2014

South Australia has been crowned National Champions at the Cricket Australia Under 17 Male National Championships that concluded in Adelaide yesterday.

Needing a victory in their final match against the ACT, South Australia posted 280 batting first. The in-form Jake Winter top scored with 87 while Nikolas Kartas (52), Patrick Page Jnr (41) and Damon Kerr (37) provided good support.

In reply, the ACT suffered an early setback losing opener Henry Hunt, bowled by David Grant for just one. It was South Australia's Nicholas Fox however who stole the show, claiming 4/19 from 13 overs and tearing through the ACT top-order to set up the win for his side. Grant finished with 2/36 while Ayden McGregor–Baptista (2/21), Isaac Boylan (1/34) and Michael Cormack (1/48) were also amongst the wickets.

Opening batsman Jake Winter was named Player of the Championships having compiled 389 runs in five games for the home side at an average of 77.8, and was joined in the Team of the Championships by teammate and fast bowler David Grant. Grant finished with 10 wickets from five games with best figures of 4/45.

State Talent Manager Tim Nielsen credited the win to team a great team performance throughout the carnival.  

“It was a fantastic team effort, all the players contributed with both bat and ball which was great,” said Nielsen.

“Jake and David were brilliant and had excellent carnivals; those two really leading the way.

“All the guys fought tremendously hard in incredibly hot weather, to continue to concentrate in those conditions was a credit to the boys.

“Coach David Scholls and Team Manager Andrew Zesers provided brilliant support and gave the boys the best opportunity to play positive cricket."
