Archie Harrison enjoyed a weekend to remember, claiming five wickets for Northern Districts Cricket Club, before scoring a match-winning 52 not out for the Cricket llawarra representative side in the Creighton Cup semi-final. 

The young all-rounder continued his exceptional run of form in Australia, having already scored a one-day century for Northern Districts and lifting T20 silverware with the side.

Brooke Guest got South Perth’s Western Australia Cricket Association Premier T20 campaign off to a perfect start by smashing 83 from just 52 balls in their 19-run win over University, while Luis Reece starred for Gosnells, hitting 59 before taking 3-26 to defeat Melville.

Elsewhere down under, Mitch Wagstaff made 24 for Corowa in their defeat to Lavington, while in South Africa, Harry Came made eight as Claremont were beaten by Green Point Cricket Club, before the Derbyshire batter put in a crucial super-over performace to help his side to the Western Province T20 Cup the following day.

Spinner Mark Watt has been selected by Desert Vipers for the upcoming International League T20, which will take place in the United Arab Emirates across January and February. Watt has signed an all formats deal to return to Derbyshire for the 2023 season, after an impressive ICC Twenty20 World Cup with Scotland.

Fast bowler, Sam Conners, has joined up with the England Lions squad for their United Arab Emirates training camp, which will also see the young quick take on the England Men’s Test squad in a three-day fixture, starting on Wednesday 23 November.

Assistant Coach, Bowling Lead, Ajmal Shahzad will be working at the Abu Dhabi T10 with Delhi Bulls, starting on November 23, before travelling to Pakistan as part of the Multan Sultans’ coaching staff in the Pakistan Super League across February & March.
