• Shazer Jang
Shazer was another of our newbies for this year. Only played the first half of the season and went missing for the last 5 or 6 games. The teams resident “blogger” and a team online favourite. Next year: more games!
• John Koleth
This young man is a very fine cricketer. Along with Louie MH, Johnny K is one of the favourites amongst the boys. He is always encouraging in the field and is the first player to ‘get a hand on a back’ when encouragement is needed. He was rewarded with the Team Player award by popular vote from the boys. He is a very good bowler and a super confident (sometimes too confident!) batsman. John’s bowling figures (12 wickets @ 17av) with a best of 4/9 against Blue in round 4 were spectacular. John’s batting was always a spectacle, and his two bests of 30 against Blue in round 4 and 22 against Gold in round 9 were just brilliant to watch. Well done John – great stuff.
• Rahul Nathan
Rahul’s bowling is coming along really well. He is tall and lean, and when he bowls his right arm mediums he has developed the capability of getting a wicket right when the team needs one (5 wickets @ 9.6av). The second best strike rate of all WPH bowlers in the competition with a wicket every 9.6 balls! It was a shame that he only played 5 matches and bowled 18 overs! Always next year, Rahul.
• Finley Nelson
Finley is a good bat and also a solid medium pace bowler. He is a very handy fielder as well and as such is one of our good all rounders. Had a handful of great knocks; a 50 against Hornsby Berowra in round 6 and a handy 24 against the Blues in round 11. Took 3 wickets for the year with a best of 1/11. Well done Fin, great work.
• Louis Madison-Hanlon
As mentioned previously, Louie is one of the teams’ favourite players. He is also one of our best all rounders
with some great bowling and batting throughout the season. Took 7 wickets for the season with an average of
22. Louie’s batting was superb, with some great knocks including 31 against Gold in round 1 for a total season tally of 130 @ 18.5av. Very well liked by all the boys and always chirping away on the field with encouragement to the players. Of course Louie’s best bowling for the year was not at club cricket, but I have to mention it
anyway because, well, it’s just incredible! Round 3 of the u14 Presidents Cup Louie took 9 wickets for 14 runs v. Newcastle in 9.1 overs with 4 maidens (yes you have read that correctly). Incredible stuff! We are just amazed that there were no hat tricks in there!! Congrats Louie and well done, what a season!
• Agni Sen
Agni is a second year player who is progressing well with his cricket. His batting and bowling are coming along well and his fielding is very handy. Agni’s bowling is coming along nicely, with 1/21 his best this season against Hornsby Berowra. Well done, Agni!!
• James Skuodas
James is a talented cricketer and has the potential to become a very good right hand fast bowler and a solid batsman. He took 8 wickets this season with a 31 average and a best of 2/36 against Normanhurst. His fielding is superb and easily the best in the team with his rocket throws in from the boundary that more than once dislodged the bails for a run out. Batted very well prior to Christmas with a best of 26 against Berowra Maroon.
• LiamWeiss
Liam had a good season with the bat and the ball and was also a solid contributor in the field. He definitely seems to enjoy his cricket. He top scored with a knock of 15 against Castle Hill that was very handy against some quality bowling. Always put a solid effort in the field and took 3 valuable catches for the season. Well done Liam.
Thank you to our coaches, Mick Boulous & Snehal Patel for taking the boys on the journey this season. Thank you also to the parent group who umpired, scored and barracked for the boys.
Congratulations boys, a great season and see you next year.
