The Manjimup-Bridgetown Times has selected the top performers from the Warren Blackwood Cricket Association this season and assembled a team of five batsmen, one all-rounder, one wicketkeeper and four bowlers, based on the statistics of all games played this season, including the finals. Openers: Hugh Mitchell (Bridgetown) and Peter Bamess (Pemberton). The top two batsmen in the competition will open the batting for the team. Both men had excellent seasons, with Bamess leading the competition in fours hit, while Mitchell hit 15 sixes this campaign to be the equal leader. Both made centuries and each managed four 50s this season. Batsmen: Asa Lamb (Northcliffe), Tristan Mead (Boyup Brook) and Darren Tassos (Bridgetown). Lamb hit as many fours as anyone else in the competition and is unlucky not to be picked as an opener after an excellent season for Northcliffe, which included an innings of 138 not out. Mead would be in consideration for the all-rounder spot but his season with the bat justifies his selection as a specialist batsmen for this team, making two centuries. His 197 not out was the highest score this season. Tassos had a solid season with the bat for Bridgetown, averaging 39.88 runs per innings in the middle order for his team. All-rounder: Daniel Ward (Manjimup) Having scored the fourth most runs in the competition this season and taken 16 wickets — the most of any top 10 batsman — Ward is an easy pick to fill the all rounder’s spot. His 16 wickets came at an economical 2.66 per over. Wicketkeeper: Tom Sherwell Sherwell was the leading wicketkeeper in the competition this season, taking the most catches and making the most stumpings. He was also handy with the bat this season for Bridgetown, averaging 25.22 with, a top score of 76. Bowlers: Dan Bayman, Simon Duncan, Kimberly Gardiner, Sam Tempra. Bayman was the leading wicket taker in the competition, taking 30 wickets and going at less than 3 runs per over. Bayman’s excellent season with the ball was complemented by his batting, averaging 17.21, with a top score of 43. A big part of Bridgetown’s success this season was their ability to put pressure on the opposition with the ball, so Duncan and Gardiner make the team not only for their wicket-taking ability, but also for their excellent economy with the ball, going for less than 3 runs per over each. Sam Tempra was Pemberton’s best bowler during the competition, taking 23 wickets at 3.92 and getting through 93.1 overs for his side. 12th man: Andrew Tuthill Tuthill is unlucky not to make the side as an all-rounder, averaging 25 with the bat and taking 12 wickets at a respectable 3.27 per over. He edges out Jozef Parkinson for the 12th man spot, due to his superior batting average and economy with the ball.
