A MATCH-winning performance for North Queensland Cricket Alliance has sealed Trent Sorohan's berth in the Queensland Country Cricket team.

Sorohan claimed a crucial 4-51 as North Queensland snatched a two-run win over South Queensland in the XXXX Cup in Brisbane late last month.

"We were in a bit of trouble before I got a few wickets," Sorohan said.

It is the second time in as many years that the 26-year-old bowler has been named in the Queensland Country team.

Sorohan made his debut for Queensland Country last year and impressed immediately, earning a place in the Australian Country line-up.

The Yaralla bowler said he was honoured to be given the chance to represent Queensland Country again.

"You're pretty much the top of your state outside of the Brisbane A-grade competition," he said.

Sorohan's selection is reward for a lifetime devoted to the sport.

He began playing indoor cricket as a five-year-old and started playing the outdoor game as a teenager.

"I enjoy playing and I enjoy the teamwork and mateship," he said.

"It's probably what keeps me playing."

Bundaberg will host the Australian Country Cricket Championships from January 3-10 and Sorohan is confident that Queensland Country can build on its performance in last year's championships.

"We lost three games by a total of 15 runs and came third," he said.

Queensland Country will launch its campaign with a two-day match starting on January 3.

Each team will play three two-day matches, two one-day matches and two T20 games.
