Hurricanes Academy overcome Qalanders

25 October 2017

The Hobart Hurricanes Academy have accounted for the Lahore Qalanders by 39 runs in their opening match of the Quadrangular series in Sydney.

After Hurricanes skipper Simon Milenko won the toss and elected to bat, Tasmanian rookie Caleb Jewell wasted no time in flaying the Qalanders bowlers to all parts of Blacktown Sports Park, combining with Charlie Wakim (22) for an 89-run opening stand.

Jewell continued on his way, eventually dismissed for a fine 108 from just 69 deliveries including 13 boundaries and a six.

Sean Willis also provided strong support, hitting 32 from 26 balls to close out the innings. The Hurricanes Academy setting Lahore 174 to win.

The Qalanders never got going in response, with Aaron Summers, Nick Buchanan and Hamish Kingston all claiming wickets to reduce Lahore to 6-75 in its chase.

The visitors were eventually bowled out for 134, with Summers, Kingston, Milenko and Clive Rose all claiming two wickets each.

Academy coach Darren McNees was glowing in his praise of Jewell's innings.

"I was hoping that during this series a young player would make a statement and show us something exciting and Caleb Jewell did that today," he said.

"Caleb set up our innings with Charlie Wakin and Sean Willis providing good support. Scoring 173 was a great start to the tournament considering the fire power we still had in the shed.

"Our bowlers were excellent, taking early wickets and we continued to take wickets regularly. Cameron Boyce showed what a class bowler he is in this format with a maiden in the 14th over." 

The Hurricanes Academy play their next match against the Sydney Thunder Academy tomorrow at 3pm.
