Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

CLARE­MONT-NED­LANDS Cricket Club player Bradley Hope has been named in the Cricket Aus­tralia XI squad that will play in the Un­der-19 Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide next month.

Hope joins fel­low West Aus­tralian Matthew Spoors in the 14man squad that was cho­sen at the re­cent un­der-17 Na­tional Cham­pi­onships.

The squad will head to Ade­laide on Novem­ber 24 be­fore their first match on Novem­ber 30. Former Aus­tralian fast bowler Ryan Har­ris will coach the side, while Queens­lan­der Nathan McSweeney is cap­tain.

“The op­por­tu­nity I have to coach a side so young and get to know some up-and-com­ing crick­eters and to see them per­form will be ex­cit­ing for me. My role is to teach them a bit more about the game. I am hop­ing they ask plenty of ques­tions be­cause I will be ask­ing ques­tions of them,” Har­ris said.
