    Brackenhurst -
    Manager: Nath Patrick
    Captain: Ty Browne
    Brackenhurst is really another name for: Peter Hamlin



    Justin Hindle - LHB, LLS, Age 22
    56 matches, 40 innings - 10 catches
    1395 runs @ 35.77, S/R (76.52), HS (145)
    69 wickets @ 26.97, Eco (4.92), BB (5/61)
    The big-brother of Brackenhurst after Brett Read's departure, Hindle
    plays the role of quiet contributor aswell. His solid all-round skills
    are vibrant in the quieter games but seem shakey in big clashes.
    Perhaps his recent change from death bowling to first-change is
    exactly what he needs. Once took 8-for in a friendly.

    Leighton Steyn - RHB, WK, Age 24
    42 matches, 31 innings - 39 catches, 9 stumpings
    668 runs @ 35.16, S/R (98.96), HS (157)
    Mentor to Pete Bardle and knowledgable campaigner, Steyn's experience
    plays a helpful part in the development of the club. A very solid back-up
    with the gloves and hard hitter of a cricket ball.

    Dean Holmes - RHB, LS, Age 24
    55 matches - 17 catches
    81 wickets @ 24.06, Eco (4.21), BB (7/19)
    Deano and his quickish leg-spinners have made a revival in
    Season IX. He is always on the spot and difficult to put away for
    boundaries in the closing stages. Often his biggest enemy is himself,
    becoming visibly infuriated when things don't go his way. Has the
    most wickets, five-wicket hauls and best individual figures for the club.

    Peter Hamlin - RHB, RM, Age 20
    55 matches, 43 innings - 10 catches
    2012 runs @ 59.18, S/R (91.58), HS (159)
    Without a doubt the best player in the side, when people think
    Brackenhurst - they think Peter Hamlin. Men want to be him and women
    want to be with him. A remarkable player, particularly
    against spin, he barely fails no matter what the occasion. Playing the
    horizontal shots when they're not on is his main weakness, but when
    pulled off correctly they are a joy to behold. If Hammers
    departs without scoring many, the opposition will probably feel they
    have won the game. Hamlin has played some of the great all-time innings
    for Hurst and holds all sorts of batting records. Solid in the field, he is the
    hope and light of the club.

    Zia Burnip - RHB, OS, Age 19
    39 matches, 37 innings - 2 catches
    1759 runs @ 67.65, S/R (95.55), HS (163)
    More often than not the reason for Hurst's great start to their innings
    is Zia Burnip. Zia was often criticised for playing for his average
    instead of the team. Drawing comparisons to Jacques Kallis, Burnip has indeed
    found a more attacking approach with minimal risk which has made him
    exciting and beautiful to watch. His straight driving is absolutely stunning. Watch for the
    home crowd's call of Ziiiiiiiiiiiiia! when bowlers are running in to face-up to him.
    His form will be crucial to 'Hurst's chances in the Cup.

    Dwayne Smart - RHB, RF, Age 19
    30 matches - 1 catch
    60 wickets @ 16.43, Eco (3.94), BB (5/4)
    Now seemingly at the top of his game, Dwayne Smart is a red-
    hot, mature, accurate and devastating quick bowler. Leading 'Hurst's
    attack, he often if not always makes the first breakthrough. Smart gains
    great bounce with a Donald-esque action and will trouble even the best
    batsmen on whatever surface. An extremely disciplined young man, Dwayne
    is well-liked and well-known. Golden boy of coach Nath Patrick, he will
    be vital in the breakdown of opposition sides.

    Ty Browne - RHB, LM, Age 19
    39 matches, 26 innings - 6 catches
    750 runs @ 46.88, S/R (85.23), HS (115)
    Inspirational. That perhaps is the best way to describe Captain Browne.
    A ferocious attitude with his captaincy and bat saw Brackenhurst move
    in a winning direction to the force it is today. Setting unique fields
    and leading by example is what makes Browne a fantastic cricketer and
    character. In the past believed to be purely a lower-order slogger,
    Browne proved he had adapted his game enough to become the Club's
    number five. His worth to the club goes far deeper than pure statistics and
    fans and officials alike wil be hoping his positive influence on 'Hurst long
    continues.

    Seamus Copeland - RHB, RFM, Age 18
    12 matches - 3 catches
    11 wickets @ 56.91, Eco (6.32), BB (3/26)
    Much more of a First-Class bowler than in the shorter form, Seamus
    Copeland is far too predictable to be a force at the top level. He has
    definately been improving his game of late, but will need to improve
    further still to become the number one replacement for Smart or Mushtaq
    Littlejohn.

    Pete Bardle - RHB, WK, Age 18
    23 matches, 13 innings - 47 catches, 5 stumpings
    205 runs @ 17.08, S/R (100.99), HS (128)
    Pete Bardle's rise from the beginning of his career has been exceptional.
    Learning his trade from Steyn, Bardle's wicket-keeping is superb and
    only getting better. One of the more quiet blokes of Brackenhurst,
    he speaks volumes with his beautiful work behind the stumps. Needs to
    rise above his FTB status with the bat however.

    Arthur Greene - LH, LOS, Age 18
    17 matches - 0 catches
    26 wickets @ 16.85, Eco (4.13), BB (5/17)
    Under-rated by all and sundry, Arthur Greene will surely get you.
    Manager Nath Patrick had talked Greene up so much that by the time of
    his debut, Arthur has all the right to be nervous. But in a heavy loss
    for Brackenhurst, Greene shone, constantly asking questions and bagging
    both openers. Greene's flight is his main feature, and his control and
    variations offer batsmen no time to relax. Is still in the process
    of mastering his game and turning the ball more and more.

    Alex Swailes - LHB, LM, Age 18
    7 matches - 0 catches
    4 wickets @ 39.75, Eco (3.98), BB (2/50)
    Alex Swailes left-arm mediums are accurate and annoying. Puting him away
    is damn near impossible and although his 20/20 apperances have been
    to date unimpressive, Nath Patrick is sure that will be his main trade.

    Marvin Solanki - RHB, RFM, Age 17
    6 matches - 1 catch
    12 wickets @ 13.75, Eco (4.02), BB (6/19)
    "I hope he doesn't do well again today." This is a direct quote from
    Nath Patrick before a match in Season IX. After much questioning and
    debate, it was decided by management that Mushtaq Littlejohn would claim
    the remaining bowling position in the 'Hurst outfit and Marvin Solanki
    has made them regret it since. Without a doubt more-than-competent
    back-up for Smart or Littlejohn, Solanki's movement with the ball and energy
    in the field make for a wonderful competitior.

    Mushtaq Littlejohn - RHB, RFM, Age 17
    5 matches - 0 catches
    2 wickets @ 65.50, Eco (3.25), BB (1/24)
    Although perhaps more statistically unimpressive than Solanki, Mushtaq
    Littlejohn has the gig as second opening pace bowler in the
    Brackenhurst line-up. With an extremely similiar, smooth action to Marvin,
    Littlejohn needs to make a larger impression and soon. Took 5/24 in a
    friendly, easily outbowling Solanki and loosening the tension somewhat.
    In his limited OD appearances to date, Littlejohn has received orders to
    contain runs and that he has done respectably. If he can keep the runs
    down for 'Hurst in the upcoming Cup matches, Brackenhurst management
    will be thrilled.

    Graham Brazier - RHB, RM, Age 17
    6 matches, 2 innings - 2 catches
    77 runs without dismissal, S/R (140.00), HS (64*)
    Reserve batsmen for 'Hurst and a fine one at that. Graham Brazier is
    never far from selection and could easily sneak his way into the side if
    others are failing to impress. With wonderful onside play, Brazier is
    ideal for finishing an innings and is the man you want under a high ball,
    because he actually can not drop it.

    Jerome Dance - RHB, RFM, Age 17
    1 match, 0 innings - 0 catches
    yet to bat
    Yet to get a real chance at OD level, Dance is a more traditional
    batsman. Has lots of time to improve and is using his FC appearances
    to show his potential.

    Matthew Nott - RHB, RFM, Age 24
    26 matches, 20 innings - 6 catches
    495 runs @ 30.94, S/R (86.69), HS (121*)
    Every team would love a player like Matthew Nott. Uncomplaining and
    patient, Nott has the experience and temprament to help with large and
    tricky totals alike. Unsure of his position in the order, he gives his
    all every game and surely that is all you can ask for. Bullseye in
    the field, he could probably work a bit on building on his starts.

    Dave Nelson - LHB, LOS, Age 17
    1 match, 0 innings - 0 catches
    yet to bat
    yet to bowl
    Hindle's direct replacement, Dave Nelson is a decent all-round cricketer,
    but at this stage, nothing more. Made his name in some 20/20 contests
    with a crucial 5-for.

    Greg Fenton - RHB, RFM, Age 17
    0 matches - 0 catches
    yet to bowl
    Nath Patrick loves this kid. Taking 4 wickets on his friendly and 20/20
    debut respectively, he is an excellent wicket-taking option, fighting with Solanki
    for the main reserve bowling option.

    Karl Angus - RHB, RF, Age 17
    3 matches, 1 innings - 2 catches
    84 runs @ 84.00, S/R (93.33), HS (84)
    The new kid on Brackenhurst's batting block, Karl Angus is being
    hailed as the perfect solution for life post-Brett Read. With dazzling
    strokeplay and a large amount of improvisation, Angus' batting is as
    exciting as it is inconsistent. Without too much difficulty Angus
    should become a regular for 'Hurst's first XI, but the question is
    whether he will be ready for the big stage of the CW Cup so early on in
    his career. Many greater a man have broken down and cried.

    Duggan passes 10,000 one day runs.

    11.1 4 Strutter to Duggan
    Short and Duggan on it very quickly, pulling behind square and all along the ground for four.

    This was the moment. It moved Jason Duggan from 45* to 49, or more significantly from 9998 one day careers runs to 10002, just.

    JD sets sail

    Duggan was sold this morning for 11,730,000, ending a great era of Whenuapai cricket. His stats are for the club are as follows. He is probably the greatest player to ever grace the Cricketweb landscape, just.

    I expect nibbs will post him a bit later, but just to whet your appetite, off the top of my head... masterful batting, miraculous concentration, superb stamina. What a specimen. There are a few intangibles in this game, ie; heart, ability to inspire, but I assure you Jason Duggan was at least exceptional in all of them.

    just saw this in the local Causeway Courier, the local Whenuapai weekly newspaper. made me quite emotional

    "...sits atop the proverbial tree of all human achievement. He hovers over us as deities to be worshipped and adored, but never again to be emulated. We can learn from his infinite wisdom, but none of us can ever match him. He effortlessly combines power, speed, athleticism, big-dickedness, and jogging. HE HAS TO WIN..."
