Cricket Albury-Wodonga has hammered CAW Country at Country Week’s under 14 level.

Country batted first at Kiewa, but was bowled out for 96.

Josh Wright top-scored with 23, while Bailey Williamson snared 2-5 from 5 overs.

“He just bowled really good lines, he just hits the spot every ball, and makes batsmen make mistakes,” CAW coach Mitch Ryan said.

Off-spinner Hamish O’Brien also bowled well, taking 2-21.

“It was really impressive bowling by CAW by their two spinners and their opening pace bowler,” Country coach Mick Galvin said.

“They had a left-arm off-spinner (O’Brien), who was nearly unplayable, and a pretty steady right-arm leggie.”

Openers Williamson and Michael Grohmann then peeled off the runs.

“They showed a lot of patience, waited for the loose ball, they rotated the strike and put pressure back on the bowler,” Ryan said.
