Young crick­eter bat­tles the heat

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT - Erica Mur­ree

BIGGEN­DEN’S Aaron Kelly was a mem­ber of the Wide Bay Un­der-13 boys’ cricket team.

And the team fin­ished run­ner­sup in the re­cent state car­ni­val in Char­ters Tow­ers.

Play­ing in 40+ de­gree heat each day in 100-over matches, Wide Bay scored three wins and two losses.

But Aaron’s mum, An­drea, said the team “really shouldn’t have lost at all”.

Although Kelly may not have starred with the bat, he played his part by field­ing well, bowl­ing eco­nom­i­cally and wick­et­keep­ing, mak­ing four stump­ings and four run outs.
