Country Wests bowlers on song
AN inspired bowling display from Kyle Stallan and Braydon Graham helped Bundaberg under-19 to an easy win against South Burnett yesterday.
Stallan took the new ball with Mitch Waters and the pair instantly had the Burnett batting order in twos and threes.
Figures of 3-12 seemed impressive for Stallan, but Graham came to the party, claiming 4-10, while fellow Country Wests bowler Steve Nichols managed 2-22.
They rolled Burnett for 63, and knocked off the runs in six overs.
“Kyle really set the platform and bowled quite well with the new ball,” coach Rhys Grills said.
“All the bowlers did their jobs, really, and made it a simple task for the batsmen. “We have Gympie next up and hopefully we can keep the wins coming.”
It was a neat double for Graham, who grabbed three wickets in Country Wests' defeat of Brothers Blue.
In-form opener Travis Henke was in the runs again, belting the Brothers attack all around the park during his 136, while Phil Proctor (85) and Steve Nichols (56) also enjoyed time at the crease.
A five-wicket haul to skipper Mat Fleming, his first sizeable contribution of the season, helped make quick work of Brothers' run chase.
They will hope to carry the form into next week's two-day game against Brothers.
