Matt fin­ishes on hon­our board

Canning Times - - SPORT -

WITH only 20 wick­ets on of­fer per team dur­ing a stan­dard two-day match, Matt Hanna’s re­cent Willetton Cricket Club record is an im­pres­sive feat.

The 25-year-old swing bowler fin­ished his side’s game against Mid­land Guild­ford with a club-best wicket haul of 13-85, bring­ing his sea­son to­tal to 26 wick­ets in just five rounds.

Hanna said he felt like the ball was com­ing out of his hand well in the past few weeks.

“Our bowl­ing at­tack is re­ally strong at the mo­ment. Ev­ery­one is do­ing their job and we are form­ing some nice part­ner­ships amongst the group,” he said.

“I’m pretty pa­tient, I think, and be­ing a swing bowler you kind of have to be, but I’d like to think I put the ball in the right ar­eas more of­ten than not.

“There has been a lot of re­ally good bowlers at Willetton over the years, so it’s nice to have my name along­side them on the hon­our board.”

The club record is the most re­cent ac­co­lade for Hanna, who was also named in the WA Premier Cricket team of the year for the 2016-17 sea­son.

Willetton plays Melville in round 6, with day one start­ing at 11.40am, Novem­ber 11 at Bur­ren­dah Re­serve.
