Q: Week 11 – ‘The Opening Spell’

Coaches scoring centuries, undefeated teams and the talent of tomorrow!

First ball – Zero to hero!

St George-Sutherland Brewer Shield captain, Lucia Martin, was dismissed for a second-ball duck against Gordon at Killara Park. Her side would set a seemingly surmountable 85-run target for the Deers.

question
Q: On November 3, 2023, community cricketer Paul Compton reached a rare – maybe even unique - milestone in Australian cricket. Compton who plays for De La Salle Kingsgrove Cricket Club (DLSKCC) in Sydney’s Southern suburbs, took his 1000th wicket in Australian Club cricket.

Compton is 60 years old and this milestone has been a long time coming. He picked up the bat for his club as early as 10 and went through the entire club cricket pathway to start playing senior cricket around 1983. His 1000 wickets have come off the last 40 years of bowling right arm medium outswingers to his opponents.

Q: In the beautiful suburb of Hornsby Heights, Friday evenings at Montview Oval turn into a carnival-like atmosphere. There’s music, dancing and lots of cricket, played by girls who just can’t have enough fun.

Montview Oval is equipped to run two cricket matches next to each other, and come Friday this season, Stage 1 girl players (8-12 years-old) who have, until now, mostly played Cricket Blast, or haven’t played cricket at all, gather in the afternoon sun to play against each other’s teams.

This is a celebration of girls’ cricket all the way. The ball is pink, the kit is colourful, and no one needs to wear white unless they choose to. There’s music playing on a boom box and the girls are dancing with their bats, inventing cricketing moves and perfecting their legwork all in one. A few pink hoodie-wearing fielders are around the field, ready for a catch, or to stop that opening batter’s boundary attempt.

Q: Week 9 – ‘The Opening Spell’

A tale of young and old, a story of bat versus ball, a record-breaking partnership and kit reveal above it all!

First ball – Bulldogs bite first against Sharks!

Daniel Solway opened the batting for Bankstown in their first-grade battle against Sutherland at Glenn McGrath Oval. Some 257 deliveries later, Solway’s innings came to an end, having accumulated 149 runs (13 fours, 1 six). He became the second player to pass the 500-run mark for the season and reached 8,000 first-grade runs in the innings. Solway sits at 8,050 first-grade runs at an average of 44.23 and has now achieved 24 centuries in the top division of NSW Premier Cricket.

Q: Cricket NSW is celebrating Women and Girls Week from November 20-26, and the state’s Central Coast has more reason to feel joyous than just for a week.

It was eight years in the making, but Cricket NSW’s (CNSW) and Central Coast Cricket Association’s (CCCA) bid to have female only teams in every club at all community-based levels of the game has finally been a success.

Central Coast is fast turning out to be NSW’s female cricket hub. This year, during Women & Girls Week, Cricket NSW will celebrate stories of success for seven days, bringing forth extraordinary stories of ordinary women and girls who have thrived on and off the cricket field because of their love of the sport.

question
Q: The cricket family and wider community is saddened by the passing overnight of former Cricket NSW chairman and Life Member Dr Gorur ‘Harry’ Harinath OAM.

Dr Harinath came to Australia from Hyderabad in 1971 and began work at the Mercy Hospital in Tasmania with barely a dollar to his name, before forging a highly successful medical career and making a seismic contribution to cricket.

After a year in the Apple Isle, Harinath built a friendship with former Pakistani batsman Sadiq Mohammad and was recruited to play for his cricket team, thus beginning a five-decade long connection to the game in this country.

In 1977, Dr Harinath joined Balmain Cricket Club (now Sydney Cricket Club) as their team doctor at the invitation of then Australian Cricket Board chairman Fred Bennett. It wasn’t long before Dr Harinath's passion and administrative skills led to him to the club’s presidency - a role he held for more than 30 years.

First ball – Big Bash meets little bash!

Colloquially referred to as the ‘little bash’, NSW Premier Cricket’s Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup came to a spectacular conclusion at Coogee Oval over the weekend. Randwick Petersham chased Gordon’s total of 8/152 with eight balls to spare, thanks to a crisp display of hitting from Sydney Thunder’s Daniel Sams (42 from 30) and Alex Ross (43 from 33), as well as Brisbane Heat’s Jack Wood (25 from 19).

Q: Week 3 – ‘The Opening Spell’

Both the men's and women's NSW premier cricket competitions are now underway! That means more weekly highlights, milestones and wonderful imagery from the best grade cricket competition in the world.

First ball – Picking up where you left off!

Women’s NSW Premier Cricket First-Grade Player of the Year last season, Grace Dignam, has commenced the 2023-24 season in damaging fashion scoring 84 runs (71 balls) to propel her Northern District side to a season opening victory over Bankstown. Similarly, Sydney Cricket Club’s Eva Ragg top-scored (56) in her first, first-grade outing of the season to help set a match-winning total against the St George-Sutherland. Ragg’s spectacular start to the new season marks her first premier-cricket appearance at Drummoyne Oval since notching a grand-final century to claim the 2022-23 second-grade premiership for Sydney.

question
Q: Week 2 – ‘The Opening Spell’

History makers, wicket takers and record breakers. The men’s premier cricket season is back in full swing!

First ball – Simmons roars into record books!

Fairfield-Liverpool first-grader Jaydyn Simmons has hit his way into club and competition history, striking 134 (not out) runs from just 66 deliveries against a Blacktown bowling attack at Hurstville Oval. The knock, which included 13 fours and 7 sixes, made Simmons Fairfield-Liverpool’s first ever T20 centurion, and puts him at second on the list of all-time highest individual scores in a NSW premier cricket T20 fixture. Simmons’ total sits just five runs behind James Crosthwaite, who scored 139 (not out) for Manly Warringah against UNSW on November 11, 2016. The Fairfield Liverpool innings finished at 3-246, again second only to the 5-265 UNSW totalled against Eastern Suburbs on November 22, 2020.

In a series of moves designed to restore NSW to the top of domestic cricket, the Blues will look to the support of a group of former players with almost 1000 appearances for NSW and the state’s Big Bash clubs.

On the field, veteran former skipper Moises Henriques will be the all-format captain, ready to add to the 20 previous matches he led the Sheffield Shield side across seven different seasons. He has also captained the Blues One-Day team on 16 occasions.

question
Q: A brand new cricket competition for women will take off this summer with the launch of the inaugural Cricket NSW Twilight Women’s Cricket League.

The fun, eight-a-side competition will feature 90 minute matches, starting at 6pm on weekday evenings, and has been designed to cater for women who can’t commit to a full day’s cricket on the weekend and associated training sessions.

Teams can be made up of players of all standards, from those wanting a mid-week hit, to those wishing to return to the game after some time away, and those with no previous cricket experience.

The competitions, which will be run on smaller suburban grounds with synthetic pitches, will be operated by Cricket NSW, with all equipment, ground set up, umpires and scoring provided, meaning teams just need to turn up and play.

Is someone able to share what benefit the relationship will bring to Cricket in New South Wales?
Is there a financial benefit that will help grow community cricket throughout the state?

Thank you for the question.

The Washington Freedom partnership and also our partnership with Major League Cricket has a number of benefits.

• Enables us to diversify our revenue and generate income that can be reinvested back into the game in NSW.
• Provides playing opportunities for NSW based cricketers in the Minor Cricket League and Major Cricket League in the USA.
• Provides professional development opportunities for coaching, support staff and administration staff.
• We are directly involved in discussions with the “power brokers” of world cricket i.e. the IPL clubs to help us understand the future of cricket and assist us to retain relevancy in a quickly changing global cricket landscape.
• Provides opportunities for inbound USA and USA based teams to play against our teams in NSW.

question
Q: Vale Hedley 'Brian' Taber 29 April 1940 - 21 July 2023

Cricket NSW is deeply saddened by the passing yesterday of former Australian and NSW wicketkeeper Brian Taber. He was 83.

Born in Wagga Wagga and raised in Wollongong, Taber played his entire career with the Gordon club.

He made his first-class debut wearing cap number 526 for NSW in the 1964/65 season and went on to play 129 first-class matches prior to his retirement in 1973/74.

Taber also captained NSW on a number of occasions between 1968/69 and 1972/73.

While he scored one first-class ton and eight half centuries, it was Taber’s wicketkeeping aplomb that he was known for.

Safe and calm under pressure, Taber was considered one of Australia’s greatest ever ‘keepers. He made his Test debut behind the stumps for Australia (cap 240) against South Africa in Johannesburg on December 23, 1966, finishing the match with seven catches and a stumping.

In all, Taber represented Australia on 16 occasions between 1966 and 1970, snaring 56 catches and making four stumpings. He also scored 353 runs at a tick over 16.

Following the completion of his playing career, Taber continued his passionate association with cricket, holding several coaching and managerial roles. He managed the Australian Under 19 men’s team on several occasions and the winner of the Player of the Tournament award at the National U/19 Championships is now awarded the Brian Taber Medal.

Known as ‘Tabsy’ or ‘Herbie’, Taber coached NSW and was a Blues selector for 24 years through the 1990’s and 2000’s, many as the chairman of selectors.

Taber was made a Life Member of CNSW in 1979 and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2021.

Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon called Taber ‘one of the most popular NSW and Australian players ever’,

“We are devastated by the passing of Brian Taber and send our condolences to his family and friends,” Germon said.

“His contribution to Australian cricket was immense, as a player, coach, manager and selector.

“Tabsy was universally loved for both his skill as a wicketkeeper and his character as a person.

“He was such a nice, genuine guy and he will be greatly missed by all.”

Q: Jason Arnberger goes big with 319 for NSW 2ndXI against NSW Country in December 1995

Jason Arnberger was a Penrith junior and played Sydney Grade Cricket for Penrith so it was Arnie’s home ground when he scored 319 not out against NSW Country.

Jason made his debut for NSW during the 1994/95 and he moved to Victoria at the start of the 1997/98 season. He played his last first class game for Victoria against Queensland in March 2006.

In a first class career spanning 1994/95 to 2005/06 Jason Arnberger played 88 first class games and in 165 innings scored 6,049 runs at an average of 39.79.

He scored 13 first class centuries and 32 half centuries and took 58 catches.

Jason was awarded Victoria’s State Player of the year in 2005/06 and it was an unfortunate back injury that kept him out of the 2006/07 season and ultimately the end of his distinguished first class career.

Q: Jenny Gunn appointed assistant coach of NSW Breakers

The NSW Breakers have received a massive boost as they return to training with the appointment of English great Jenny Gunn MBE as an assistant coach for the upcoming season.

Gunn joins a Breakers performance staff that is led by head coach Gavan Twining and consists of assistant coach Grant Lambert, analyst Benji Hoppitt, strength and conditioning expert Sean Hardy and long-time physio Katie Ryan.

The 36-year-old will also work closely with Cricket NSW’s Pathway coaches Sarah Aley and Hannah Trethewy to help develop the next generation of Breakers.

Gunn played 259 matches for England across three formats between 2004 and her international retirement in October 2019, and is widely considered one of the greatest all-rounders of all-time. During the 2018 Women's T20I Tri Nations Series in India, the medium pacer and batter became the first cricketer, male or female, to play in 100 T20 International matches.

Gunn said she was looking forward to reconnecting with the Breakers and helping drive personal development amongst the playing group.

“I did some coaching career development with the Breakers before the pandemic and so I am familiar with most of the players in the system,” Gunn said.

“This is something that will certainly help with the transition into this role, and I’m excited to see how far the players have progressed over the last few years.

“I’m also keen to assist with their development throughout the season to help each of them reach their potential.”

Cricket NSW Head of Elite Female Cricket, Leah Poulton, said the triple world cup winner would bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role.

“We are very excited and grateful that we have been able to bring Jenny out to work with Cricket NSW and the Breakers,” Poulton said.

“She was one of the world’s best players throughout her career and has a great way of being able to communicate what she has learnt and experienced to the players.

“Jenny is also really good at identifying and developing young players and will help with the transition of players from the Pathway level to the elite senior level.”

The Breakers began pre-season training this week, while captain Alyssa Healy, Ash Gardner, Phoebe Litchfield, Maitlan Brown, Lauren Cheatle and Tahlia Wilson will return to the NSW set up after they return from international duties in the UK.

question
Q: Cricket fans can now be part an exciting intersection between history and the future at the home of Cricket NSW, Cricket Central.
The Cricket NSW Foundation has launched a Purchase a Picket campaign, giving fans, cricket clubs or businesses the opportunity to make a donation towards a plaque that will be applied to the picket fence that surrounds the main oval at Cricket Central.
In a salute to history, all former and current NSW Blues, Breakers, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers players will have a picket dedicated in their honour and people can donate for the plaque that will sit alongside their favourite player or even for their own picket.
One former Sydney Sixers, NSW and Australian great, Brett Lee, is right behind the initiative.
“We’re giving cricket fans, clubs and businesses the opportunity to donate to Cricket New South Wales’ Foundation, which will give them a plaque put on one of these cricket pickets here at Cricket Central to show their contribution towards the game,” Lee said.
“So, you could have your name alongside the greatest cricketers ever to play the game right here on the pickets at Cricket Central.
“I think legacy is so important, especially here at Cricket New South Wales because I think about growing up and having the opportunity to leave a mark on the game.
“(But) I think about these pickets and all those amazing past players and also present players and the young boys and girls who are to come down to Cricket Central to see all these names and one day, hopefully, they might be on a picket.”
There is also a CNSW Legends category, featuring present and past greats, with plaques alongside pickets for the likes of Bradman, Trumper, Davidson, Clark, Healy and Perry all on offer via a donation auction. Lee is also one of the 27 Legends to be honoured.
Donations are tax-deductible towards the Cricket NSW Foundation and funds raised are a nod to the future - supporting our efforts to enrich communities and improve lives through cricket by enabling access to the game in NSW.
