Broken Hill lad Lachlan Tiziani is developing his cricket talents in the first under 14 state-wide cricket cup, now being held in suburban Adelaide.
Lachlan is from the North Broken Hill cricket club and is predominately a right hand medium pace bowler, and lower middle order batsman.
Despite his side remaining winless at the Country Cup carnival, Tiziani took seven wickets at a strong average of 20.40.
His best performance was on day two at Gordon Brown Oval, where he collected 4/41 from nine overs, including a maiden against a potent Fleurieu North side then made a handsome 219.
“The inaugural BankSA Under 14 Statewide Cup competition is being used to identify players for the South Australian under 15 state squad in the 2011/12 season,”said SACA Competitions Unit spokesman Ben Johnswood.
“The aim is to have the best playing against the best during these matches, with all the most talented country and metropolitan cricketers participating.
“The BankSA under 14 state wide cup includes teams from the 12 SACA grade clubs plus the two country representative teams, known as Country Red and Country Black.
“Players in these two country teams have been selected based on their performance during the Under 14 country cup carnival held in Adelaide during late November and early December.”
Tiziani is playing in the Country Red team, which has also includes players from from the South East, Fleurieu North, York Peninsula and Upper North districts.
