EX ACT cricketers fare okay over the weekend.

By Thumper 24 October 2005 4

Given that I have written a few things about cricket recently, I’ve decided to keep tabs on ex Comet players around the country and update this as much as possible for the readership.

And so let us look at what happened over the last weekend.

Firstly we had the Tasmania versus QLD at the Gabba. QLD won the toss and sent the Apple islanders in to bat on a seaming deck and knocked them over for 211 in which Dave dawson topscored with a very well compiled 55. QLD snuck in to win by two wickets.

Meanwhile, at the picturesque Bankstown oval, home to the Wuagh Brothers and Jeff Thompson and Lennie Pascoe, South Australia posted a respectable 245 with Mark Higgs, ex comet and Queanbeyan player, scoring only 10. In reply NSW scored the winning runs off the penultimate ball of the match with Brad Haddin also disappointing, scoring only 13.

Other ex Canberra players such as Jack Smith and Darren McNees have yet to play a game in the top tier of Australian cricket this season.

But I figured he still must be there or there abouts if the others go down with injury or loss of form.

He’s been spoken about in glowing terms as a future leader and he still only pretty young.

Anyway, if he scores a squillion this season he’ll force his way back in.

Jack Smith lost his contract with the Redbacks this season, but is Captain of West Torrens in the SACA competition.

I have’nt played a game this season due to rain and injury.

Hopefully I’ll get on in a week or two….

As a matter of interest my last two digs were 10 and 18 not out on a very dodgy green Aranda deck last season.

C’mon Thumper, how about giving us YOUR score sometime?
