Each round the most outstanding players of the Inverarity and McKenzie Shield competitions are recognised as the Players of the Round. The Player of the Round is determined by a points system with all winners receiving a certificate at the Junior Awards Night.
The McKenzie Shield Player of the Round is Tanishk Chethan (Perth). As Gosnells won the toss and batted, Tanishk led the way with the ball picking up economical figures of 3/21 off 8 overs, which included 2 maidens. He also took a catch on the field to have the Hawks bowled out cheaply. In response, Tanishk was brilliant with the bat as he top-scored for his team, scoring 82 runs off 82 balls, including 11 fours and 1 six to help his team to a strong win. This superb effort from Tanishk earned him the Player of the Round award for all junior grades!
The Inverarity Shield Player of the Round is Charlie Cossom (Scarborough). As Scarborough elected to bat first after winning the toss, Charlie played a brisk cameo of 20 not out off 29 balls, to help his team to a strong total. In defending the target, Charlie was sensational on-field as he inflicted a run-out and took a catch, However, his excellent bowling proved to be the difference between the teams as he picked up amazing figures of 5 wickets for 6 runs off 7 overs, including 2 maidens. Well done Charlie!
