Sean Whitehead picks up all 10 wickets in a first-class innings

Published

News

The left-arm spinner, who played for South Africa at the 2016 Under-19 World Cup, took 10 for 36 in a Division 2 match of the 4-Day Franchise Series

He enjoyed a superb match overall, picking up 5 for 64 in the Easterns’ first innings and also contributing 66 and 45 as South Western Districts wrapped up a comprehensive 120-run win.

The 24-year-old Whitehead is an allrounder who bowls slow left-arm orthodox and bats right-handed. He was a member of the South Africa squad at the 2016 Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh, playing all six of his team’s matches and picking up six wickets at an average of 26.00.

Whitehead now has 39 wickets in 13 first-class games at an average of 25.64, to go with 481 runs at 37.00.

Whitehead’s figures of 10 for 36 are the second-best in the history of South African domestic cricket, behind the legspinner Bert Vogler’s 10 for 26 for Eastern Province against Griqualand West in Johannesburg all the way back in December 1906.

The last bowler to pick up all 10 wickets in a first-class innings in South African domestic cricket was the seamer Mario Olivier, who took 10 for 65 for Warriors against Eagles in December 2007.

Thirimanne opts out; Mathews, Chandimal part of 22-member squad that has four uncapped players

Lahiru Thirimanne has made himself unavailable for Sri Lanka’s upcoming two-Test series against West Indies starting on Sunday in Galle.
Minod Bhanuka and Chamika Karunaratne, both one-Test old, also made the cut. Bhanuka, the top-order batter, makes a return after missing the Bangladesh Tests at home in April, while allrounder Karunaratne, who debuted against Australia two years ago, returns on the back of impressive limited-overs performances, both at home against India in July and at the T20 World Cup.

The squad has four frontline spinners in Lakshan Sandakan, Ramesh Mendis, Praveen Jayawickrama and Lasith Embuldenia along with six pace options. Suranga Lakmal spearheads the seam attack that also has Lahiru Kumara, Asitha Fernando, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando and rookie Gunasekara.

Both the Tests – part of the new WTC cycle – will be played in Galle.

Squad: Dimuth Karunaratne, Oshada Fernando, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva, Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Minod Bhanuka, Roshen Silva, Ramesh Mendis, Kamil Mishara, Chamika Karunaratne, Lakshan Sandakan, Lasith Embuldeniya, Praveen Jayawickrama, Suminda Lakshan, Suranga Lakmal, Vishwa Fernando, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Asitha Fernando, Chamika Gunasekara

WBBL round-up – Alana King reigns supreme as Sydney Sixers finish bottom for first time

Perth Scorchers will host the WBBL final at Optus Stadium next Saturday

Melbourne Stars 1 for 181 (Villani 100*, Lanning 52) beat Adelaide Strikers 3 for 175 (Mack 89*, Penna 56*) by nine wickets

A brilliant century from Elyse Villani, brought up with the match-winning six, enable Melbourne Stars to finish their season on a high note with an impressive run-chase against finals-bound Adelaide Strikers.
Villani and Meg Lanning, with her second fifty of a relatively lean season, added 119 for the first wicket but Stars still needed more than 12 an over in the closing stages. However, Villani and Annabel Sutherland regularly found the boundary in a stand of 62 off 29 balls. Villani reached 94 with the boundary that leveled the scores then just managed to clear the long-off rope to bring up her maiden WBBL hundred.
Katie Mack, who has enjoyed a stunning run of form in the latter half of the tournament, and Madeline Penna were the other batting stars of a high-scoring encounter. They added an unbroken 118 in 12 overs for the fourth wicket after Strikes had slipped to 3 for 57 following two wickets in four balls for Sutherland. They scored 77 from the final six overs with Penna reaching a 31-ball fifty with a six.

During the run chase Jemma Barsby showed off her ambidextrous skills by switching between right-arm offspin and left-arm finger spin when bowling to Villani and Lanning.

Perth Scorchers 2 for 131 (Piparo 50*) beat Sydney Sixers 4 for 128 (Perry 39*, King 3-18) by eight wickets

Sydney Sixers took the wooden spoon for the first in the WBBL as Perth Scorchers rubberstamped their place in the grand final, which will be hosted at Optus Stadium on November 27, with a convincing victory.

In a good sign for their title dip next week, Scorchers’ middle-order again got the job done in the run chase as Chloe Piparo, with her maiden WBBL fifty off 39 balls, and Heather Graham added 74 for the third wicket.
Legspinner Alana King had been the star with the ball, knocking back a promising start from Sixers by removing Alyssa Healy and Shafali Verma with her first three deliveries. She then returned in the 15th over to claim Nicole Bolton and after two overs had 3 for 5. Angela Reakes gave the innings a bit of a late kick but the total never threatened to be enough.
