Busselton T20 Allstars named

What a season we have had in the second-ever instalment of the Busselton T20 Corporate Cricket Competition.

With the Lemons defeating the Swingers in the grand finale, it is now time to reveal the individual award winners from the season, and the 2018-19 All Stars team.

Based on runs and wickets, the All-Star team has a great mix of batsmen and bowlers, with some impressive averages amongst the team!

Opening the batting, the Bin Chooks' Chris Brook will partner the Match Fixers' Kent Perkins.

Brook led the scoring for the competition this year with 365 runs at an average of 73, while with the ball, took nine wickets.

Perkins scored 313 at 44.7 and took 15 wickets at a bowling average of 11.8.

Number three, Son’s of Pitches' Dan Wilde, has scored 302 runs at an average of 43 and dismissed 10 players with his bowling this year.

His team-mate, Craig Basell scored 291 runs with an average of 58.2 and will come in at number four, and with only taking one wicket for the season, is definitely there for his batting.

One of the biggest improvers this season was the Heavy Rollers' Paul Keen.

The Rollers captain amassed 289 runs at 36, while taking 10 wickets at an average of 22.5, will see this Roller came to the crease at number five.

The Son’s of Pitches have their third and final All Star, with Brayden Surrell to come in at six.

With 279 runs at 34.9, and taking six wickets at an average of 24.3, the All Stars team is starting to look pretty strong.

This season’s premiers, the Lemons, have their first entry with Paul Christenson to come in at number seven having hit 265 runs at an average of close to 30 runs per innings. He was handy with the ball again this season, taking 12 wickets at 16.2.

Our wicket keeper comes in now. The runners-up this season, the Swingers, have Aiden Fraser in to bat at number eight - with 257 runs at 64, he is a very handy lower order batsman.

If required, he can bowl too; 10 wickets at 12.5 shows that this season.

Fraser’s team captain and All Stars vice-captain, Tye Denton, is next to come in - 212 runs for your number 9nine batsman, while taking 13 wickets this year, shows the depth this team has; with both bat and ball.

Now we welcome your captain.

Jarrod Simpson, from the premiers, the Lemons, will stride to the crease at number 10. He took the most wickets this season with 16 at an average of 8.9 but also scored 195 runs at 32.5.

Our number 11 batsman is the Bin Chooks' Nathan Larsen with 14 wickets at 13.4, while 186 runs at just over 20 is a good fit.

His Bin Chooks team-mate, Bryte Townsend, rounds out our team at number 12. His wicket haul this year was 13 wickets at 15.1, while his 70 runs came at an average of 17.5.

A special mention must go to Ash Leaney, for hitting the most sixes this season, with 20 to his name.

Once again, it was a pleasure to see everyone playing and with an extra three teams from the first season, it is great to see everyone behind the competition.

We have over 120 players that have not played regular regulated outdoor cricket before and we hope these numbers will continue to grow going forward.

Thank you to all players, families, the Vasse community and also our sponsors - Bunbury Busselton Towing, Trade Hire, Southern Workwear and Ammunition and GWN7.

Thank you and see you all next season!
