Juniors strut stuff at cricket carnivaltheir stuffat carnival
RISING Gladstone cricket juniors Nathan Rabnott, Shay Bosworth and Rowan Murray showed why they are highly rated during their impressive performances at the three-day Youth Week carnival in Brisbane.
The carnival provided a great opportunity for talented juniors from right across Queensland to play some top level cricket and the Gladstone trio were right in the midst of the action.
Batting in the top order for the North Queensland Country under 17 team, Calliope batsman Rabnott gave a major glimpse of his ability with a classy 73 against the Queensland under-16 development squad.
Unfortunately he posted low scores in the other two matches, but still averaged 27.
BITS batsman Bosworth was part of that Queensland under-16 squad and he illustrated why he was picked after a dependable top order performance.
After missing out on day one, Bosworth did not go into his shell, instead producing two solid starts of 37 and 35 with the bat to average 24 for the carnival.
Young paceman Murray (The Glen) was a strong performer in the under-15 state secondary schools squad.
Murray collected seven wickets in his three matches at a very good average of 19.43 and caught the eye of many with his raw pace.
All three youngsters return to their club cricket commitments and are expected to feature for the rest of the 2004/05 season.
