Brothers continue in winning style

FIRST match back for the new year and still the only team undefeated in the Central Highlands senior cricket

competition.

Emerald Brothers held a five-wicket victory over Rolleston at the weekend, with Brothers' batsman Brad Jenkinson holding much of the victory together.

The consistent performer notched 34 runs with the bat and held the Rolleston batsmen at his mercy in the bowling despite not taking a wicket, finishing with 0/10 from five overs.

"He was a bit unlucky to get out the way he did," Emerald captain Chris O'Shea said.

"He played a shot he probably wouldn't usually go after and got caught."

While the all-rounder's final stroke of the day could have gone better to plan, O'Shea couldn't fault the right-arm quick's weekend bowling spell.

"He's extremely economical with the ball," he said.

"He does all the hard yards week in, week out and while he doesn't always take all the wickets, he's still a very handy asset."

O'Shea chipped with an unbeaten 29, and youngster Cameron Keene added 28 runs for Brothers also.

Beau Clarke, Quentin Lonegan and Harry Troski batted well for Rolleston.
