Townsville Bulletin



A QUEENSLAND Country side that featured three of Townsville Cricket’s best rising stars was thrashed by their metropolit­an rivals in Ipswich on Thursday.

Former Wests cricketer Ethan Ramsbotham, who joined Ipswich in the Brisbane Premier League this season, captained the Queensland Country side.

Wanderers left-arm quick Jared Edmondson (0-25) struggled to gain the upper hand in his opening spell while Ryan Mccarron (0-46) also went wicketless as the city side posted a mammoth 7-228 from their 50 overs.

Ramsbotham laid a strong foundation for the country side, lacing two fours on his way to 26 from 36 balls opening the batting but it was not enough.

Country lost 5-19 in a midorder collapse before being bowled out for 108 with Edmondson (5) the last to fall.
