AFTER a week playing cricket at the under-15 development carnival to decide the Schaeffer Trophy, Bundaberg's Bardy Thompson could have been excused if he put in a tired performance in the invitational match at the weekend.

Brady earned selection in the U15 merit team to play the Bundaberg invitational team and he was the reason the younger squad nearly pulled off an upset.

The U15 merit team made 93 and the older Bundaberg boys struggled at times but won the game with 7-97.

But it wasn't easy for the U16 team, they looked to be cruising to a win but Brady struck four wickets to nearly derail the chase.

Everything was going to plan for Bundaberg and when Michael Delaney joined Michael Newell at the crease Bundaberg was 2-46.

But then Brady took charge, he first deceived Newell with surprising bounce and he was caught at point.

Then three players thought they could charge down the wicket and smash him to the fence, but all were beaten by turn and stumped by wicketkeeper Matt Williams.
