Academy Player Westbury On Song As Hay Park Complete T20 Double

Academy Player Westbury On Song As Hay Park Complete T20 Double

Worcestershire Academy player Ollie Westbury played a key role with bat and ball as Hay Park completed a T20 double in the Bunbury and District Cricket Association first grade.

Hay Park recorded back to back away wins over Eaton and Collie CC to maintain their 100 per cent record in the short format of the game.

It was a welcome return to winning ways for Westbury's side after they had lost their previous three games in the 50 over competition.

Westbury had scored 69 and taken 3-11 in Hay Park's previous T20 match with Leschenault in mid October and continued in the same vein.

Hay Park won the toss against Eaton and scored 153-5 off 20 overs after choosing to bat with Westbury scoring 25 off 18 balls with one six.

He then bowled four tidy overs for 27 runs as Eaton just fell short of their target, closing on 152-5 to lose by one run.

The match against Collie CC produced a far more comprehensive victory in a low-scoring affair.

Westbury top-scored with 35 as Hay Park were restricted to 115-9 in their 20 overs.

But it proved far too many for Collie who were bowled out for 71 in 17 overs with Westbury returning the excellent figures of 4-0-15-1.
