Ju­niors put skills to test

Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

IN JU­NIOR cricket ev­ery­one gets a go, but that doesn’t mean some of the young play­ers don’t have their favourite roles.

Mun­dub­bera’s un­der-10 bats­man Kade Beu­tel says he would like to just bat.

“I like it when I am bat­ting be­cause they can’t get me out,” he said.

On the other oval the mood is to­tally dif­fer­ent with the over-10s side in­tense with its de­fen­sive bat­ting and field set­ting.

Over-10 player Zara Bam­bling said she likes to play cricket rather than oth­ers sports be­cause she likes the friend­ship of oth­ers.

“Other mem­bers of my fam­ily play and it is a good game that is not too hard,” Zara said.

This great foun­da­tion in the tra­di­tional game of cricket lives on in Mun­dub­bera when Gayn­dah ju­niors come to play.
