|NSW wins Australian Under 15 All Schools||updated March 2, 2014|
All southern based players performed well and helped NSW to win the title at different times.
Charlie Dummers fielding was brilliant, and his batting was superb with 45 against SA, 0 NT, 44TAS, 10ACT, and 50 WA in the final.
Sam Skelly took 6 wickets and unfortunately had a couple dropped as well. Bowled with venom and was accurate.
Tom Engelbrecht was very strong in leg spin and took 4 wickets but caused a few run outs with the pressure he created.
And Matt Gilkes opened the batting with 54, 22, 52, 8 and 7 in the final. Kept extremely well and fielding was great with 9 catches.
The semi was a nail biter. Pitch was challenging and was staying low and then seaming everywhere as NSW could only manage141. ACT’S four overage kids were outstanding and they had the game won at 3 for 94 until the boys steadily chipped away at the wickets to bowl them out for 135 with 21 balls to spare.
The final also had moments. We were in trouble at 3 for 45 until Charlie and our captain Param Uppal put on 130 runs. NSW fought hard to reach 232. WA then seemed to be in control , until the boys kept taking wickets. Matt 2 catches and a run out, Tom 1 catch and they needed 4 to win off the last ball, but were run out. Final score 230. Sam bowled the penultimate overs and was superb.
The Australian side was named to Sri Lanka in May and was picked as follows. Matt Gilkes is the opening bat and the wicketkeeper, and Charlie Dummer has been named as a shadow player . Don’t want to wish bad luck on someone, but keep fingers crossed for Charlie .
