Hay­den D’Ad­dona 16 Dou­glas Mud­dies

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

When did you start play­ing cricket? I started play­ing when I was about 7 in the Have A Go pro­gram. I did that for a cou­ple of years and then went to the un­der 11s for the Mud­dies and have worked up the age groups to the se­niors. How did you get in­volved with cricket? I was asked to play for the Mud­dies be­cause they didn’t have enough num­bers. I played a sea­son and re­ally loved it, plus heaps of my friends were play­ing too. What is the best thing about the sport? For me it is scor­ing runs and just hav­ing fun on the field. En­joy­ing the game with friends and a win is al­ways good, it just tops off a good day. What is the worst? As a bat­ter when I am play­ing reps and I come up against some re­ally fast bowlers. It makes for some tough com­pe­ti­tion. Bat­ting, bowl­ing or field­ing? Bat­ting, all rounder. My favourite shot is a cut shot. Favourite bowl­ing tech­nique? Medium pace/leg spin. Cricket as­pi­ra­tions? I will prob­a­bly play cricket in clubs wher­ever I end up in life. Favourite team mate? Ethan and Kaiden. We have good fun and they are great play­ers, we have a laugh and the game is al­ways in­ter­est­ing. Why should peo­ple con­sider play­ing cricket? It is a great so­cial sport. And there is al­ways good com­pe­ti­tion and there is a high stan­dard of play­ers up here.
