Nat Top Scores in Defeat for the Stars

Still no pattern to the results in this year’s edition of the Women’s Big Bash League as bottom-placed Renegades defeated Nat’s Stars in the Melbourne derby.

Former Stoke opponents in Big Bash and Ranji action

With SDCC missing the New Year due to being in hyper-sleep following his latest bout of cellulitis, his team of spies were on the look-out for things of interest around the world, and they didn’t disappoint.

The Prawn Lover spotted Sam Whiteman playing in the Big Bash League. Whiteman was a Weybridge player in 2010 when he lined up in their Trust League XI : http://sdacc.play-cricket.com/website/results/1327532 – yep he may have scored 91 that day, but he was becalmed by an emerging Alex Bond, then dismissed by a c T.Frost b Handel combination.
