Mark shows his versatility

MARK Cupper's unbeaten 48-run score helped steer his Emerald Magpies under-15 side to victory over Emerald Brothers at the weekend.

Batting first, the Magpies set the standard with a solid 4/180 total before holding out an under-strength Brothers' outfit to 8/110.

The Magpies had strong support through the middle order as well, with Tom Conway and Kallum Dendle making 28 and 23 runs respectively.

Showing his talents are not restricted to willow, Cupper also impressed in the bowling figures, taking 3/5 from four overs bowled for the Magpies.

Binura Gunasinghe was one of Brothers' highest run-scorers for the day, nudging 24 runs in their second innings stand.

Clermont Bulls' under-12 team total of 3/173 was enough to keep Emerald Brothers at bay when they clashed at Marist College at the weekend.

Bulls' all-rounder Will Calanan found no trouble smashing 28 runs with the bat, before returning to take 2/2 with the ball. He also hit one of Clermont's three sixes for the match.
