After a string of impressive performances this season for Hibiscus Coast Cricket Club with the bat, Ramesh Lakmal was selected by Auckland Cricket for their A-side in the quadrangular Invitational Twenty20 Tournament, held in Taupo, February 26-28.
Ramesh made a top score of 59 over the three innings and put the second highest runs on the board for the A-side overall.
As well as being the top-ranked batsman in all three of the Auckland Cricket Championship formats that Coast play in, Ramesh also lies second on the bowling leader board, with 24 wickets over five matches at an average of just over 10 runs per wicket.
His teammates Timothy Morton-Jones, Jason Grobler, Brad Norris and Jack Taylor all feature on this competition’s batting, bowling and fielding leader board too.
These performances have helped Coast into second place on the points table, with one match remaining before the seeding rounds take place.
Hibiscus Coast Cricket Club Manager Gair McSkimming says Ramesh’s success shows there are pathways for all Coast cricketers.
