Hepburn Looking To Show Worcs Seconds Form Down Under

Hepburn Looking To Show Worcs Seconds Form Down Under

Alex Hepburn will be looking to repeat the form shown for Worcestershire Seconds last summer when Willetton Dragons return to action on the opening day of the Western Australia Cricket Association first grade match with visiting Rockingham-Mandurah tomorrow.

Hepburn scored four hundreds for the Seconds in 2015 and also made several useful contributions with the ball.

He then showed his potential at senior level by picking up six wickets in two appearances in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Hepburn has registered scores of 0, 0, 7 not out and 5 in his four innings to date for Willetton but will be aiming for a sizeable contribution against Rockingham at the Burrendah Reserve after his side overcame Joondalup by five wickets in their latest match.

He returned 1-28 in six overs as Joondalup were dismissed for 119 in only 28.3 overs and was then dismissed for five just before his side completed victory.

Willetton have won two and lost two of their first four games and are lying eighth in the 16 team table from which the top four qualify for the semi-finals.

George Rhodes' side, North Canberra Gungahlin, are at home to Ginninderra in an Australian Capital Territory Premier Cricket first grade match.

The Northies lost their opening two games but defeated ANU last weekend and are occupying fifth spot in the eight team division.

Opponents Ginninderra have tasted defeat in their opening three matches.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore's club, Penrith Panthers, will be chasing 300 plus for the second successive match when day two of the Sydney Grade Cricket first grade match with home side Mosman resumes.

Mosman totalled 325-9 on day one but Penrith will take confidence from chasing down 379 to defeat Eastern Suburbs after Kohler-Cadmore, opening the innings, scored a half century.

Worcestershire Academy player Ollie Westbury will look to continue his good form when Hay Park visit Dalyellup Beach in the Bunbury and District Cricket Association first grade encounter.

Westbury has scored 69, 42 and 111 not out for Hay Park who lie in third spot in the seven team table.
