After a stellar first season with the Dolphins in our U16 A.W. Green Shield side, batsman Shaun Smith has topped it off by being named in the A.W. Green Shield Merit XII.
Regarded as the strongest junior club competition in the world, the AW Green Shield is NSW Premier Cricket’s U/16 competition and forms part of the Club Championship. Many NSW and Australian players have emerged from this competition in the past, including Pat Cummins, Steve Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Sean Abbott, Stephen O’Keefe and Kurtis Patterson.
Based on statistics from the preliminary rounds only, the AW Green Shield Merit XII comprises the top six batsmen in the competition, the top five bowlers and the leading wicketkeeper.
Shaun finished the season third on the batting charts totalling 360 at an average of 60 with a top score of 104.
Thoroughly well deserved, Shaun!
