Looking back one could not forget the unbelievable excitement and debate surrounding the Vodafone Ashes Series and the sensational results that followed. For the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues the season will be remembered for the grit shown by the players to reach two of the three domestic Finals all in the face of an injury toll and representative commitments that would have crippled most sides. The Lend Lease Breakers celebrated a record equalling sixth consecutive National 50 over title came heartbreakingly close to securing a Twenty20 crown while seven of our players experienced the thrill of winning back the Ashes. NSW also provided two Australian Test captains with Michael Clarke leading his country in the New Year s Test at the SCG and Alex Blackwell in charge of the Southern Stars in their one-off Test against the English. These are just a few examples of the highs and lows that can be experienced in a summer of cricket. To say the 2010 11 International Cricket Program was eagerly anticipated would be an understatement The crowds certainly matched the hype with the Sydney Test match attracting 179 004 spectators over the five days including close to 20 000 spectators on the final day where the match finished prior to lunch. While we love to see Australia win the results of last summer prove that the contest in Test cricket is alive and well. I am confident that crowds for future Test series will remain just as strong with tough matches against India and South Africa expected in the coming summers. At a domestic level it was pleasing to witness the tenacity displayed by the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues to reach two Finals and come within a whisker of reaching a third. NSW cricket faced the sternest of tests of depth this summer. The team s injury toll especially to the fast bowlers was horrendous while the elevation of players to the Australian team also had an effect. But to their credit the players persevered. They were the pace setters in the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield for the majority of the summer before finishing runners-up to Tasmania. The NSW spirit certainly shone through in that Final with Trent Copeland bowling a record 79 overs in the match while 17-year-old Patrick Cummins sent down 65 overs himself. They were herculean efforts by both men. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues also reached the Final of the KFC Big Bash. At one stage a staggering 16 players were unavailable for selection through either injury or Australian team selection but to the credit of the team they stuck firmly to the task at hand to win some crucial games at the tail end of the competition. By reaching the Final against South Australia the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues also qualified for the 2011 Champions League Twenty20 tournament. The advent of the city-based Big Bash League in 2011 12 means this will be the last time NSW competes as a State in this format and I look forward to the team returning to India at full strength and reclaiming the mantle of domestic T20 World Champions The team s success can be put down to several factors. The leadership was outstanding with Stuart Clark captain for much of the season and Simon Katich assuming the mantle for the last few games after returning from injury. Moises Henriques also led the side at different stages and I am sure being at the helm when his young side defeated Victoria in a crucial Big Bash match will be one of the highlights of his summer. The success of younger members of our squad has also been pleasing to witness. David Warner scored his maiden First Class century to prove he has the ability to excel in the longer formats while Stephen O Keefe s results in all three competitions made him a worthy winner of the Steve Waugh Medal. The Lend Lease Breakers continued their fine record by winning the National 50 over Final for a record equalling sixth time and finishing runners-up in the Twenty20 competition by the narrowest of margins. Both Finals against Victoria were a wonderful exhibition of cricket. In the Twenty20 decider NSW came within four runs of chasing down Victoria s 5-161 with Leah Poulton scoring a brilliant 76 from 45 balls. One week later the Breakers prevailed in the 50 over Final by 49 runs on the Duckworth Lewis Method. When the rain came one ball into the 35th over they were 2-193 and well on their way to chasing down Victoria s 263. Poulton was again outstanding hitting 51 from as many balls and it was no surprise to see her take out the Belinda Clark Medal at the end of the season. While the achievements of the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues and Lend Lease Breakers are the most public of our results Cricket NSW is also proud of our achievements in our many other programs. The Women s Second XI won a fifth consecutive Cricket Australia Cup and the U 18 Female team took out their National Championship by remaining undefeated. NSW also won both the men s and women s divisions at the Imparja Cup the National competition for Indigenous players. 2010 11 was the first season of the newly created State Cricket Department which brought our senior elite teams underpinning Youth programs and programs like the Imparja Cup under the same banner. This was a strategic decision designed to streamline our athlete pathway and most effectively utilise our coaching and support resources and I believe it will help bring more success in the future. Part of our focus for the last 12 months has also been planning for the changing face of cricket in Australia. Amongst this is the advent of the Big Bash League an eight team city-based competition which shall replace the interstate Twenty20 competition. This competition represents a significant investment by Cricket Australia and the States one which we believe will not only reap financial rewards to underpin our programs but also attract new younger audiences to the game. NSW will initially be represented by two teams the Sydney Sixers playing out of the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Sydney Thunder at ANZ Stadium with hopes to base additional teams in other areas of the State in the foreseeable future. 4 CRICKET NEW SOUTH WALES We have also begun preparations for the first ever Twenty20 International to be played at ANZ Stadium with Australia scheduled to play India on the night of 1 February 2012. Cricket NSW is hoping to attract 80 000 fans to the game and smash the record for the highest attendance at an International cricket match in NSW (currently 58 446 Australia v England in 1928 29). I have no doubt that it will be a fantastic atmosphere and a thrilling game 2010 11 was the first year of our new Venue Hire Agreements with both ANZ Stadium and the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust. Whilst it was a long and exhaustive negotiation process I firmly believe that the end result is an excellent outcome for the future of cricket in NSW with the additional revenue generated to be re-invested at all levels from the grass roots up. On behalf of Cricket NSW thank you to Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust Chief Executive Jamie Barkley and ANZ Stadium Chief Executive Daryl Kerry and their teams for the work they do in helping us host major matches during the summer. Putting together a game off field is a gruelling task and the effort is greatly appreciated. Cricket NSW continues to be brilliantly supported by our many sponsors and partners. 2011 12 will be the 10th year of our sponsorship by the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA). This is one of the longest partnerships in State cricket and one which we are extremely proud of given its charter to promote safe driving to young people. Last summer we welcomed Lend Lease as the major sponsor of the NSW Breakers. Lend Lease is passionate about helping people create a balanced life through work and recreation and we look forward to working closely with them over the coming years. 2010 11 also saw Weet-Bix become the major sponsor of our grass roots Twenty20 competition. This competition was expanded last summer to see teams firstly competing within their own regions for the Brett Lee Trophy with the Regional Champions going on the Semi Finals and the successful teams playing for the Weet-Bix Cup in the Final at the SCG. This competition proves the popularity of Twenty20 cricket amongst younger players and we see it as a wonderful way to keeps kids enthused by the game and active. Thank you to Weet-Bix for the part they play in assisting with this. We have acknowledged all of our sponsors and partners later in this Annual Report but let me just add my own personal thanks to everyone for their generosity. Financially Cricket NSW remains in a healthy state. As has been the case over the last few seasons the global economic climate had a significant effect on our bottom line especially with a smaller return than expected from overseas travel groups for the Ashes Series. However we have benefitted from the new Hire Agreements with the SCG Trust and ANZ Stadium and excellent results were achieved from Corporate Hospitality and Signage Programs while the value of several of our sponsorships also increased during the summer. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge several long serving members of the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues and Lend Lease Breakers. The end of the 2010 11 season saw the departure of Matthew Mott as Head Coach of the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues. Matthew has been with Cricket NSW for the last seven years working both as an Assistant and Head Coach and aiding in the development of many outstanding players. We wish Matthew and his family all the best in his new coaching role with Glamorgan CCC in the English County Competition. Nathan Bracken Dominic Thornely and Kate Blackwell also announced their retirements from the game. All three have had successful careers for NSW and I trust they will look back on their time representing the State with great fondness. In closing I would like to make mention of Cricket NSW being named Organisation of the Year at the 2010 NSW Sports Federation Awards. This is a wonderful accolade for our staff which acknowledges the work we do to promote the game at both the elite and grass roots levels. My thanks and congratulations to Chief Executive David Gilbert and his team for the outstanding work they have done over the last 12 months and we look forward to another exciting summer in 2011 12. Thank you also to my fellow Board Directors Mark Taylor Marshall Rosen Patricia Forsythe David Dilley Greg Monaghan Mike Silver Doug Cole and Richard Cook for their ongoing commitment to the Association. Finally thank you to all of the volunteers and players at the heart of our game for helping to make cricket Australia s Favourite Sport.

ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 5 FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE It has been an exciting year for Cricket NSW with the emergence of many highly talented youngsters in the men s and women s teams plus the drama of an Ashes summer. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were consistent across all forms of the game reaching the Final of the KFC Big Bash and Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield and coming third in the Ryobi One Day Cup. However being well beaten in two Finals only underlined that it was a season of missed opportunities. Making the Final of the KFC Big Bash ensured qualification for the Champions League in India in September 2011 which offered some consolation. With Simon Katich on National duty and then succumbing to injury Stuart Clark led the team for the majority of the season and did an excellent job marshalling a NSW team ravaged by injury. At season end he decided to step back from full-time playing duties and has accepted the role as the inaugural General Manager of the Sydney Sixers Twenty20 team in the new Big Bash League. He will however play in the Champions League in what will be his swansong for NSW. Stuart is to be congratulated on a superb career for NSW and Australia one which boasts 94 wickets from 24 Test matches and 228 wickets from 69 First Class matches for NSW. The most pleasing aspect of the past season was the rise of many of our young players to Australian representation. Stephen O Keefe Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith toured the United Kingdom with the Australian Test squad during the winter of 2010 for matches against Pakistan. Smith had the enormous thrill of making his Test debut at Lord s whilst O Keefe debuted in a Twenty20 International at Edgbaston. The wait for Khawaja to don the baggy green took a little longer and few will forget the excitement surrounding his Test debut at the SCG in January against England. With his proud family present Usman became Australia s 419th Test player in what promises to be a long and distinguished career at the top level. Promising fast bowler Mitchell Starc also impressed in his One-Day International debut against India at Visakhapatnam in October only to be cruelly denied further opportunities during the summer due to a seasonending side injury. Phillip Hughes returned to the Test side for the final three matches of the Ashes Series and will have learnt much from the experience as evidenced by his run-scoring spree in the last month of the season. At State level teenagers Nic Maddinson Patrick Cummins Nic Bills Sean Abbott Tim Armstrong and Luke Doran all made their debuts for the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues. Maddinson and Cummins in particular excelled and announced themselves in emphatic style. Maddinson at just 18 years and 294 days became the youngest debutant to score a First Class hundred for NSW with his 113 against South Australia in the opening Shield match of the summer. Fast bowler Cummins literally burst onto the domestic scene with eye-catching performances in the KFC Big Bash to finish as that competition s equal leading wicket taker. Such was the impact he made Cummins was subsequently awarded a Cricket Australia Contract for the 2011 12 season. Stephen O Keefe deservedly won the Steve Waugh Medal as the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues Player of the Year. He was a model of consistency across the three competitions and was the runaway winner of this prestigious award. Steve s never-say-die attitude is an outstanding example to his teammates because whatever the situation he always believes there is a game to be won. The Lend Lease Breakers extended their superb record by winning a 13th Women s National Cricket League (WNCL) 50 over title in the last 15 seasons. This was also their sixth title in a row equalling the competition record set by NSW between 1996 and 2002. The Breakers were undefeated in their seven matches (one wash out) comfortably defeating Victoria by 49 runs in the Final on the Duckworth Lewis Method. Leah Poulton and Alex Blackwell led the way with the bat scoring 262 and 276 runs respectively while Ellyse Perry was the leading bowler with 13 wickets at the miserly average of 9.23. Unfortunately the team just fell short in the Twenty20 competition being beaten by Victoria by four runs in an enthralling Final at the Adelaide Oval. Leah Poulton won her second Belinda Clark Medal as the Lend Lease Breakers Player of the Year. Her aggressive run-scoring at the top of the order was the foundation for much of the team s success over the course of the summer. The Lend Lease Breakers continued to provide the majority of the Australian team. Alex Blackwell Sarah Coyte Alyssa Healy Sharon Millanta Ellyse Perry Leah Poulton Erin Osborne and Lisa Sthalekar were all selected for National duty during the season with Nicola Carey Lisa Griffith Claire Koski Angela Reakes Kara Sutherland and Keeghan Tucker named in the 2010 11 Australian U 21 squad again confirming NSW s dominance of women s cricket in Australia. NSW also hosted a one-off Women s Ashes Test against England at Bankstown Oval in late January. Alyssa Healy and Sarah Coyte made their Test debuts in a closely fought match which saw Australia regain the Ashes and restore some much needed national pride after their male counterparts had been humbled by the old enemy . The Australian captain for this Test was Alex Blackwell who was bestowed the honour for the first time just weeks after Michael Clarke was appointed to lead his country in the Fifth Ashes Test at the SCG. The SCG Test match was a memorable occasion with nearly 180 000 spectators attending over the five days. With Clarke at the helm for the first time Australia went into the match needing a win to salvage a drawn series. Alas the English steam-rolled the home team to record their first 6 CRICKET NEW SOUTH WALES Ashes Series win in Australia in 25 years. England was clearly the better team throughout the series and thoroughly deserved their success. A comprehensive review of the Australian team s performance has since been undertaken and the findings of the review are eagerly awaited. The 2010 11 season saw Cricket NSW farewell three players who retired from the game after distinguished careers. Nathan Bracken a skilful left-arm swing bowler represented Australia in five Tests and 116 One Day Internationals. He played 63 First Class matches for NSW with a standout performance of 7-4 against South Australia in 2004 05 as well as 68 One Day matches. Dominic Thornely played 64 First Class and 77 One Day matches for NSW and was a member of two Sheffield Shield winning teams. He will be best remembered for his 261 not out in 2004 05 with his 11 sixes breaking the Shield record for the most sixes hit in an innings. Kate Blackwell represented Australia in four Tests and 41 One Day Internationals as a right hand batter and also enjoyed much success at State level with the Breakers playing in 76 WNCL matches and winning six titles. To all three players Cricket NSW thanks you for your dedication and commitment to the baggy blue and wishes you all the best for the future. In the National Second XI and underage competitions NSW experienced mixed results. The female teams excelled winning the Second XI and U 18 titles and finishing runners-up in the U 15 division. The male U 17 and U 19 teams finished seventh and fifth respectively whilst the Futures League team finished fifth in the Three Day competition and runners-up in the Twenty20. A review of the performances of the male teams has since been undertaken and swift improvement is expected in 2011 12. To round off a hectic representative season the NSW Country team finished third at the Australian Country Championships while the NSW Indigenous teams won both the male and female divisions at the Imparja Cup. The vitally important area of game development saw recruitment initiatives such as Beach Cricket Gala Days to the Heroes were Kids Once campaign that fronted highway billboards buses and newspapers around the State. Over 120 000 school children were visited across NSW with 307 in2CRICKET Centres established. At a time when time-poor parents are carefully weighing up sporting options for their children modified game formats have proved very successful in attracting more youngsters to try their hand at cricket. The advent of Twenty20 has been critical to this influx of participants and an increasing number of junior associations and schools now use this format as a component of their season. The Weet Bix Twenty20 Cup played by U 12 U 14 and U 16 teams is booming. Having commenced in 2006 07 with 20 teams 105 teams registered for the 2010 11 season a staggering 525% increase in just four years In the Sydney Grade competition Randwick Petersham secured the Club Championship on the last day of the season after winning all five grades in the final round. Their success however did not extend to the First Grade Final as they went down to Sydney University who also won the Limited Overs Final. Sydney University batsman Scott Henry was named Player of the Match in both Finals. Umpiring and scoring numbers in NSW continue to rise with membership of the NSW Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association up 17% over the last five years. Gerard Abood has established himself on the National Umpires Panel and higher honours look likely in the near future. Michael Kumutat made his debut at domestic One Day level whilst former First Grade player Greg Davidson represented NSW at the U 19 Male National Championships in Brisbane. Congratulations also to ICC Elite Panel member Simon Taufel who became the first Australian umpire to officiate in a World Cup Final when India met Sri Lanka last April. 2010 11 saw Cricket NSW s excellent facility at Blacktown Olympic Park host its maiden First Class and male International fixtures. In October the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues played Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 match in front of nearly 6000 fans and a Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield match against Queensland was played in December. Further representative fixtures are planned in the years ahead to build on the venue s growing profile and reputation with the people of western Sydney. The 2010 11 season was the last time State teams competed in a national Twenty20 competition. The newly formed KFC T20 Big Bash League commences in December 2011 and will initially comprise of eight city-based teams including the Sydney Sixers playing out of the SCG and the Sydney Thunder based at ANZ Stadium. This is not only a bold and innovative move by Cricket Australia to build on the success and appeal of Twenty20 but also represents a strong strategic focus to better engage kids aged 5 to 15. With vibrant team colours contemporary monikers and logos the Big Bash League promises to be a summer sensation and I urge all fans to support the Sixers and the Thunder in this most exciting new concept. Financially a year-end surplus of 888 890 has been recorded. This is a pleasing outcome particularly as cricket is not immune to the uncertainty that continues to plague the financial markets. As well the depressed state of the United Kingdom s economy certainly contributed to fewer English fans attending the Ashes Series than on previous occasions. My grateful thanks go to the RTA for their continued and outstanding support of Cricket NSW. This year was the ninth season of what is one of the longest partnerships in Australian domestic sport. The RTA s sponsorship sees many of our players visit schools across NSW delivering the On the Road program an educational program for students about the consequences of speeding. Over 200 schools have been visited over the past nine years delivering the important message of the danger of speed on our roads. An exciting new partnership we are thrilled to have Lend Lease as the Major Sponsor of the NSW Breakers. One of the major benefits to the players has been the assistance of Lend Lease in developing careers outside of sport and we extend our thanks for their valued support. Cricket NSW is also most fortunate to receive additional sponsorship support without which we would be unable to resource the programs that keeps NSW at the forefront of Australian cricket. This year we welcomed Gujarat NRE Weet-Bix Summit Leasing and City Ford as sponsors and we look forward to working closely with each of these companies in the years ahead. Finally my thanks to Chairman Dr Harry Harinath OAM and the NSW Cricket Board for its continued support and the staff of Cricket NSW for their effort and commitment. Thanks too to the many thousands of volunteers throughout NSW who devote their time for the betterment of cricket it is greatly valued and appreciated. David Gilbert Chief Executive ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 7 2010 11 S TEVE WAUGH M EDAL DINN ER THE STEVE WAUGH MEDAL STEPHEN O KEEFE Winning the Steve Waugh Medal capped off an amazing 2010 11 for Stephen O Keefe. A consistent performer all summer O Keefe took 22 wickets in the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield at an average of 20.31. He excelled with the bat in the Ryobi Cup making 219 runs at 43.80. His form in the KFC Big Bash was also impressive claiming Man of the Match honours in the opening game against South Australia before injury hampered the remainder of his tournament. Rounding out a summer of accolades O Keefe captained the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues in a tour match against Sri Lanka represented Australia A in a four day match against England and was chosen in the Australian team for the Twenty20 series also against the English. O Keefe was an emphatic winner of the Steve Waugh Medal finishing with 250 votes 99 clear of second placed Nathan Hauritz. THE BELINDA CLARK MEDAL LEAH POULTON Leah Poulton claimed the second Belinda Clark Medal of her career after an outstanding summer.

This was a time when the left-arm quick had the ball on a string foiling batsmen with a combination of swing movement off the pitch and subtle changes in pace. Originally from Springwood Bracken came on to the scene at a time when Australia was desperate for a left-arm swing bowler. He played his first Limited Overs game for Australia during the 2001 tour of England becoming a mainstay of the National side in that format over the next eight years including two successful World Cup campaigns. His career for the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues saw 58 First Class games 67 One Day games and eight Twenty20 matches. He was a member of three Sheffield Shield winning teams and took an amazing 7-4 against South Australia at the SCG. In 2009 Bracken was forced to withdraw from the Champions Trophy with a knee injury. This also ruled him out of the NSW team for the Champions League and much of the 2009 10 summer. He did however play a handful of matches at the end of that season and was Man of the Match in his last appearance for NSW. BRACKEN Nathan Wade. Born September 12 1977 Penrith (NSW). Right-hand batsman - Left-arm fast-medium KATE BLACKWELL (NSW 2002 2010 AUSTRALIA 2004 2008) Kate Blackwell epitomised the modern female cricketer athletic innovative and aggressive. Spending most of her career in the middle order she was known for scoring her runs quickly either by placing the ball for quick singles or bashing boundaries at will. Blackwell seemed tailor made to play Twenty20 cricket with her creative stroke-play often leaving bowlers bewildered. In fact she played a big part in Australia s first ever win in that format making 43 from 38 balls against the English while sharing in an 147 run stand with Karen Rolton. While flair was a major part of her game Blackwell also possessed the tenacity to get her team through tough situations. She was outstanding in helping the Breakers to the 2006 07 National title finishing as the tournament s leading run scorer with 362 at 45.25 while her back-to-the-wall 30 not out from 28 balls for Australia against England in a Twenty20 at the MCG was a prime example of her ability to turn a game. Kate Blackwell s international career ended suddenly when she was dropped for the 2009 ICC World Cup in Sydney after a lean series against India. She played one more season with NSW before announcing her retirement choosing instead to pursue her career as a physiotherapist. The news of her retirement surprised her team mates. At the time of her decision she was just weeks away from completing pre-season training and had just returned from England where she averaged over 90 in County cricket. BLACKWELL Katherine Anne.

That bumper season included an amazing 261 not out against Western Australia at the SCG where he dominated a 219 run last wicket stand with Stuart MacGill who contributed just 27 Thornely also played for Australia A. Thornely was an important cog in the NSW middle order. In a young side he provided experience dependability and a touch of class. He captained the team for much of the 2008 09 summer which included victory in the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash. He was also a member of the squad which won the inaugural Champions League in 2009. Thornely was omitted from the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues squad at the start of the 2010 11 summer. However his outstanding form in Grade cricket culminating in his winning of the O Reilly Medal as Player of the Year saw him recalled for the KFC Big Bash due to a glut of injuries. He played three matches including the Preliminary Final and Final. THORNELy Dominic John. Born October 1 1978 Albury (NSW).

Despite a horrendous injury toll and large National team representation NSW contested both the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield and KFC Big Bash Finals with the latter also qualifying NSW for the Champions League. To then go within one run of qualifying for the Ryobi One Day Cup Final speaks volumes for our playing depth and underpinning Youth Programs. A remarkable 14 NSW players represented Australia across the three formats in 2010 11. Add to that long term injuries to pace bowlers Mark Cameron Nathan Bracken Burt Cockley Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc which put enormous strain on our resources. Twenty six players wore the Baggy Blue Cap in 2010 11 with four players Nic Maddinson Shane Watson Pat Cummins and Nicholas Bills making their debuts. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues dominated the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield competition for a large part of the summer finishing second on 38 points after 10 rounds 12 points clear of the third place team. The side showed great character in going down to Tasmania in an excellent Final. Our performances in the Ryobi One Day Cup were disappointing. Once again we had to call on a large number of players (25) but with only one century all season Usman Khawaja s 121 vs South Australia it is not hard to see where we fell short. Despite losing the KFC Big Bash Final to South Australia our 2010 11 Twenty20 campaign achieved the goal of securing a highly sought after place at the 2011 Champions League. The fickle nature of Twenty20 cricket means it is difficult to play consistently game after game. This was certainly the case with three wins and three losses from the six round matches. In the process though we were able to provide teenagers Pat Cummins Luke Doran Sean Abbott and Tim Armstrong with the invaluable experience of playing in front of big crowds in pressure matches. There were some wonderful individual highlights throughout the year. Trent Copeland s amazing durability and consistency was a major reason for the team s success in the Shield competition. His 451 overs for the season was over 100 more than any other bowler in the country and 270 more than any other NSW bowler. His ascendancy from Club cricket in the space of 18 months has been a pleasure to witness. He is a captain and coach s dream. Usman Khawaja s double century against South Australia was another example of his ability to make batting look easy. He also proved his versatility as a player with his breakthrough Limited Overs century. Brett Lee was without question our standout Limited Overs bowler. His last over efforts against Western Australia at the WACA and South Australia at North Sydney Oval won us two matches. His enthusiasm was infectious and it was fantastic to have him back playing for NSW. It was very pleasing to see the improvements David Warner made to his game to make his mark in First Class cricket. He now plays with the discipline to bat through tough periods and a technique to score runs consistently on all surfaces against all bowling types. Another highlight was the development of Stephen O Keefe from fringe player to integral member of our group in all formats. No one in the squad works harder on their game and his success this season was richly deserved. The manner in which Pat Cummins and Nic Maddinson handled their elevation into First Class cricket belied their tender years. It is so exciting The 2010 11 RTA SpeedBlitz Blues to see two young players so composed talented and totally unaffected by their success. Patrick knocked over some of the most accomplished players with genuine pace and late swing. His efforts in bowling 65 overs in the Shield Final only his third First Class match was an amazing performance for a 17-year-old. Nic s magnificent century on debut at Adelaide Oval in the opening match of the year remains one of the summer s favourite moments. Ben Rohrer s consistency and versatility was invaluable. Ben played some crucial innings during the season across all formats scoring six half centuries to help set up several victories. There is no better team man. Then there was the all-round performance of Nathan Hauritz. His five wicket haul at the WACA followed by back-to-back centuries against South Australia and Queensland were wonderful examples of how to respond to adversity having been dropped from the Test team. We were very fortunate once again to have some outstanding leadership around the group and our thanks go to Stuart Clark and Simon Katich for their selfless contributions. Thanks also to Moises Henriques Nathan Hauritz and Stephen O Keefe for performing the captaincy role admirably at various times during the season. Our thanks and best wishes also go to Matthew Mott for his wonderful contribution in his four years at the helm of the squad. All players and support staff have benefited from his passion knowledge and friendship and join me in wishing him and his family well with Glamorgan CCC. Another big thank you goes to our hard working support staff.

After winning the toss and deciding to bat first on the renowned Adelaide Oval surface NSW piled on an imposing 6-529 declared with Nic Maddinson (113) becoming the youngest-ever New South Welshman to score a century on First Class debut at the tender age of 18 years and 294 days. He was superbly backed up by Usman Khawaja who completed his maiden First Class double century with a superb 214 from 294 balls. In reply to this imposing total South Australia were dismissed first time around for 255. Trent Copeland picked up from where he left off the previous season with three wickets while Moises Henriques contributed 4-53 from 14.3 overs. Following on the Redbacks fared little better and were bowled out for 279. Stephen O Keefe claimed four wickets to give him seven for the match while skipper Stuart Clark was at his usual miserly best with 3-26 from 14 overs. Jaques and Maddinson knocked off the required six runs for the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues to record a comprehensive victory and one that gave them the belief that they could go all the way in this competition.

Deciding to bat first on the famed green wicket NSW posted a respectable 262 in conditions that favoured seam bowling. A patient 60 from Usman Khawaja and an equally important 69 from Ben Rohrer formed the backbone of the innings which then allowed the bowlers to create havoc as they dismissed the home side for just 75 in 29.5 overs A resurgent Mark Cameron was the main destroyer with the remarkable figures of 6-22 from 11 overs while the recalled Scott Coyte added to his 48 runs with the bat by snaring two wickets. Asked to bat again Queensland s batsmen suffered a similar fate to their first innings this time bowled out for 96. Cameron was in prolific form again as he picked up a further five wickets to return the match figures of 11-52. He was superbly backed up by Trent Copeland who contributed four wickets in conditions that were tailor-made for him while Scott Coyte claimed a hat-trick to complete a strong match.

Victoria batted first to post 378 after centuries to David Hussey and Andrew McDonald. In reply NSW managed 263 and were indebted to Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke who scored a superb 113. The next best contribution being Phil Jaques with 28. In response NSW reduced the visitors to 4-45 before McDonald stepped in again to add a second hundred despite Mark Cameron picking up six wickets for the match to add to his eleven from the previous game. These performances resulted in selection for the Australia A side that took on England in a four-day fixture in Hobart. Set a difficult target of 391 to win in a day against a strong bowling unit NSW never really threatened finishing on a creditable 6-254 with Brad Haddin holding things together with an unbeaten 61. A worrying sign was Michael Clarke struggling to bat at number eight with a back injury that only just recovered in time for the first Ashes Test.

ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 19 2010 11 WEET-B IX SHEFFIELD SHIELD ROUND 4 RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES VS TASMANIA Sydney Cricket Ground 17 19 November 2010 In a match that was billed as the unofficial final trial for the first Ashes Test both teams fielded full strength teams. Within minutes of arriving at the ground spectators knew that the ball was likely to dominate as extravagant seam movement on a green wicket under overcast skies saw all batters struggle. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues decided to take the plunge and bat first and never recovered from being 6-73 to be bowled out for just 97 with Phil Jaques top scoring with 28. Quick wickets in response were the order of the day and Tasmania soon found themselves in trouble at 8-86. Ricky Ponting (7) was already gone however some late hitting from Luke Butterworth (39) allowed a final score of 125. Trent Copeland revelled in the conditions to record 6-51. Still 28 runs in arrears the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were hoping to set an imposing last innings target but despite steady contributions they lost their last five wickets for 33 runs to leave Tasmania chasing 163 in the fourth innings. Up stepped Shane Watson. In only his second appearance for his new State he recorded the superb figures of 5-39 from 14 overs to reduce the visitors to 9-136 still requiring a further 28 for victory. In a case of d j vu however Luke Butterworth swung mightily to see his side home by one wicket finishing on 44 not out. With all eyes on the selection battle between spinners Xavier Doherty and Nathan Hauritz it was the seam bowlers that dominated with Hauritz only bowling one over in the match and being unable to press his case for Test selection.

After a par batting performance in the first innings in which they posted a respectable 291 NSW came alive with the ball to bowl out the home side for 205 with Bollinger and Copeland picking up three wickets each. It was also great to see Nathan Hauritz bounce back from being left out of the Australian side by taking two valuable wickets on a ground not normally suited to spinners. The game was now set up for NSW to offer a challenging fourth innings target and they did this through the work of Usman Khawaja (50) Steven Smith (70) and Peter Nevill (48 not out) who contributed towards a final total of 278 all out. Set 365 to win Western Australia reached 3-129 before falling apart to lose their last seven wickets for 36 runs with Hauritz again the destroyer taking 5-39 from 27 overs. His seven wickets for the match and ability to put the adversity behind him were a credit to his strength of character. In an interesting aside Mark Cameron was called into the team mid-way through the match to replace Doug Bollinger who was required for Test duties and responded by taking three second innings wickets.

The first innings for both teams was vital to the outcome of the match. NSW struck first by dismissing the visitors for 188 with Steven Smith and Moises Henriques taking four wickets each. In reply the home side was able to take control of the game through a remarkable innings by Nathan Hauritz. The off spinner took guard at the end of day one and continued batting all the way through day two to pass the highest score by a NSW nightwatchman (Steve Rixon 124 against Victoria in 1981 82) as well as the highest ever score by a nightwatchman in Shield cricket (Ray Jordon 134 for Victoria against South Australia in 1963 64). Enter Steve Smith who added a further four wickets to give him his best ever match analysis in First Class cricket (8-169) aided by a resurgent Hauritz who contributed a further three wickets to easily claim the Man-of-the-Match award. Khawaja (35 not out) and Smith (46 not out) completed proceedings to see NSW sit at the top of the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield table. He was well supported by Peter Nevill (108 not out) who compiled his second First Class hundred batting at number eight. This turn of events knocked the air out of the Redbacks who slumped to 4-102 in their second innings before a superb partnership of 196 between Ferguson (131) and Christian (106) looked like setting the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues a tough chase on the last day.

The effort of Hauritz (110 not out) to produce back-to-back hundreds was complemented by a century from Nic Maddinson (137) which helped NSW post a powerful 9-458 declared. On a slow surface wickets were hard to come by. However the NSW effort was unrelenting and resulted in the visitors being bowled out for 213 with Doug Bollinger and Stephen O Keefe picking up three wickets each. With the need to create a run chase in the final innings the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues pushed ahead with half centuries to Usman Khawaja (78 not out) and Moises Henriques (53 not out) leaving Queensland a challenging target of 414 on the final day. With the bounce becoming unpredictable NSW were forced to work hard but finally forced victory in the final hour with wickets being shared evenly. A win by 133 runs was a fair reflection of the match and gave the side good impetus going into the KFC Big Bash season.

After a welcome return to form by Phillip Hughes (69) all eyes turned to his opening partner David Warner in his first Shield appearance of the season. Warner was superb as he curbed his aggressive style to bring himself to the verge of a maiden First Class century before holing out to cover on 99 much to his disappointment and also his team-mates. Equally impressive was Phil Jaques (129) who held the innings together with a measured century that included 17 fours and a six. In response Trent Copeland was his usual accurate self picking up four wickets and he was well supported by Beau Casson in his first appearance of the season for NSW. Casson combined both accuracy and turn to return the superb figures of 4-56 from 14 overs as Victoria were dismissed for 263. Setting a target was now the focus for the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues and in the process of doing so history was made as Phil Jaques (125) became the 16th player to score two hundreds in a First Class game for NSW and the first since Greg Mail in 2003 04. He was also the first New South Welshman to achieve the feat at the MCG. With 450 to chase on the final day and skipper Stuart Clark unable to bowl due to a foot injury Victoria were able to hold on finishing at 4-252. Trent Copeland again proved himself to be an iron man with six wickets for the match from a combined fifty five overs.

After a mountain of runs in the previous game the NSW batters were not unduly worried about being asked to bat first in this important game. At 9-59 they were shell shocked and only some late hitting from Peter Nevill (24) and Scott Coyte (17) saw them reach a miserable 74 all out. It would need a miracle to turn things around and at 2-253 Tasmania were dominating before Trent Copeland (3-112) and Coyte (3-82) took the last eight wickets for 100 runs. The home side was all out for 353 a lead of 279. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues fought hard in the second innings but none of the batsman could push on to a big score to challenge the lead. Jaques (41) and O Keefe (46) led the scoring but the Tasmanian pace attack proved too consistent as NSW were bowled out for 209. It was a match debutant quick Pat Cummins would rather forget with the result leaving the team needing to win their last match and have Tasmania lose if they were to host the Final.

The game saw North Sydney paceman Nic Bills make his debut and he was soon in the action picking up a wicket in his first over. The visitors were bowled out for 382 with centuries to Marcus North (158) and Shaun Marsh (111) with Trent Copeland carrying on his marathon efforts of the summer with 41 overs in the innings for a return of 2-110. In reply NSW needed to score big runs and get them quickly. Enter David Warner who scored his maiden First Class hundred 114 from 169 balls. After the disappointment of missing out in Melbourne with 99 he was an elated figure as he celebrated a superb innings. NSW now looked to take the game to the visitors in order to be able to chase a last innings total and they were again indebted to Copeland (4-61) and O Keefe (4-65) as they bowled out the Warriors for 190 to leave a last innings target of 251 on the final day. With Warner going early Hughes (115) proved to be the match winner as he showed he was back to his best form. Despite a middle order collapse Ben Rohrer finished off the job with a clinical 70 not out to see his team home by seven wickets. Tasmania s win meant that the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues would venture to Hobart for the Final the following week.

David Warner acknowledges his maiden First Class century ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 25 2010 11 WEET-B IX SHEFFIELD SHIELD FINAL - TASMANIA VS RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES Bellerive Oval 17 21 March 2011 The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues travelled to Hobart for the Final of the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield knowing that the five days needed to produce one thing victory. The lead-up to the match meant that the team was well prepared and upon seeing a moist Bellerive wicket the selectors decided to go with an extra batsman meaning that paceman Nic Bills was made 12th man. Tasmania took the lead by winning the toss and asking NSW to bat. Their theory was simple - allow their four man pace-attack to have first use of the wicket and bowl the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues out for a low score. But this didn t quite work out as they hoped. David Warner (47) and Phillip Hughes (138) put on 88 for the first wicket and despite a couple of cheap dismissals the 185 run partnership between skipper Simon Katich and Hughes had NSW in total command at 3-306. However the loss of Katich (96) late on the first day meant that the team needed to consolidate the following morning. They didn t quite manage to do this despite an excellent unbeaten 64 from Ben Rohrer and ended up with a score of 440 all out. In response Tasmania were desperate to show that they could handle the pressure of a Final and it was a former New South Welshman who led the way. Ed Cowan s marathon 133 spread over seven hours provided the cornerstone to an innings that really cemented itself when Luke Butterworth added a sparkling 88 batting at number seven. With the wicket flattening out the 178.2 overs it took the home side to reach its final total of 453 took an enormous toll on the bowlers. The opening pair of Trent Copeland and Patrick Cummins bowled a combined total of 104.2 overs between them. At just 17 Cummins had previously been limited to spells of six overs in grade cricket so this was a rude awakening to the toils of fast bowling at this level and he responded magnificently. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues now had to chase the game and looked to bat positively in their second innings to set Tasmania a challenging target.The game was now all about time rather than runs. Hughes (93) was cruelly denied a second hundred in the match while Jaques (94) also fell short of the milestone as Katich bravely declared with a lead of only 203 runs with 30 minutes to play on day four. It was make or break time and unforgivably three missed chances in that short period came and went and NSW went to stumps knowing they needed a herculean effort on the final day. The miracle never happened as solid batting by the Tigers saw them reach the target in mid-afternoon with Mark Cosgrove (44 not out) hitting the winning runs to see the home side triumph by seven wickets. It had been a tough battle and Copeland s combined match figures of 5-177 from 79.2 overs were a testimony to the iron-man qualities he had shown all season.

The new format was interesting with one point being awarded for leading after the first 20 overs and a further four being available for the final result. This resulted in some lower than usual scores in the early rounds as teams worked out new par totals. This was evident in this first encounter as South Australia scored a modest 4-96 from their first twenty overs only to see NSW fall short with a reply of 4-89. The match then became an arm wrestle as the Redbacks reached a workman-like 9-232 from their allotted overs with NSW skipper Stuart Clark the most successful bowler with 4-51 from his 10 overs. Unfortunately the NSW middle order was not up to the task. Debutant Nic Maddinson provided the only real highlight with 54 from 51 balls as the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were dismissed for 199 losing by 33 runs. It was a disappointing start to a new competition but provided the team with a learning experience in the new format. ROUND 2 RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES VS WESTERN AUSTRALIA Hurstville Oval 17 October 2010 Returning to the picturesque Hurstville Oval where David Warner hit a career-best 165 not out two seasons previously the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues welcomed back an array of Australian players in front of a sizeable suburban crowd. With Parramatta all-rounder Sean Abbott on debut NSW were grateful to returning speedster Brett Lee who picked up two valuable wickets in helping restrict the visitors to a below-par 6-224 on this batsmanfriendly ground. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues looked in total control when Brad Haddin thumped his way to 70 from 75 balls before a mid-innings collapse saw the game start to slip away. Enter Man of the Match Stephen O Keefe who smashed an undefeated 70 from 50 balls with five fours and four sixes. He and Peter Forrest (35 not out) saw NSW home by five wickets with 2.4 overs to spare. A solid win against an understrength WA team boded well for an all-out assault in this competition.

After NSW had taken the first session point with controlled batting between Brad Haddin and Phil Jaques they were then subjected to some power hitting from Ed Cowan (131 not out) and Travis Birt (87 from 62 balls). Bizarrely Cowan was given not out caught behind when on 74 despite TV replays clearly showing the ball had carried to keeper Haddin. The two added 172 for the fifth wicket and the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues suddenly saw a 15 run lead at the end of the first period turn into a chase of 195 from the final 25 overs for victory This proved way too many as the early departure of Haddin (56) meant that the middle order needed to score quickly with little time to play themselves in. Jaques (95) was the key but when he departed trying to lift the rate NSW lost their last seven wickets for thirty runs to lose the match by 72 runs. The lack of lower order runs was a worry as was the inability of the bowlers to stem the flow of boundaries towards the end of the innings. However the team knew that there was a long way to go in the competition. ROUND 4 QUEENSLAND V RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES The Gabba 29 October 2010 The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues recovered their form to inflict a crushing win over Queensland with a dominant bowling performance at the Gabba. NSW went into the game with a number of changes including a debut being given to Manly-Warringah batsman Tim Cruickshank. They had the home team in trouble when they reduced them to 6-105 shortly after the innings break. While skipper Stuart Clark picked up the Man of the Match award for his frugal spell of 2-31 from nine overs it was all-rounder Scott Coyte who made the most impact picking up 3-31. That would have included a hat-trick if Peter Nevill had been able to hang on to a leg-side chance from Cameron Boyce. With the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues only requiring 68 from the final 25 overs with seven wickets in hand they cantered to victory on the back of Nic Maddinson (38 not out) and Peter Forrest (20 not out). The downside of the performance was a hand injury sustained by skipper Clark which required him to return to Sydney.

On a wicket that looked full of runs NSW progressed smoothly after losing David Warner early for one. Steady contributions from Hughes (47) Maddinson (37) and Steven Smith (51) helped the visitors reach a respectable 2-88 after 20 overs only to see the home side reach 3-103. Runs flowed after the break with a cameo of 44 from 28 balls by Stephen O Keefe the icing on the cake as NSW reached a formidable total of 9-259. O Keefe smashed a four and four sixes in his brief time at the crease. The Warriors chase was to rest solely on the shoulders of opener Shaun Marsh. Requiring 13 runs from 17 balls with three wickets left the game looked over. But when Marsh was caught next ball off the bowling of Clark for a superb 132 from 135 balls the chase faltered and NSW crept home by the narrow margin. Brett Lee continued his superb form in this competition taking the Man of the Match award with the superb figures of 5-47 from 10.4 overs. ROUND 6 TASMANIA VS RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES Burnie 4 December 2010 The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues made it three wins in a row as they defeated Tasmania in the picturesque but cold surroundings of Burnie. The key to the match came in the first section when Tasmania were limited to 2-66 from their 20 overs after some superb bowling from Brett Lee and Stuart Clark. NSW took first innings points when Warner (44) and Hughes put on 73 in the first fifteen overs and then limited the home side to a final total of 8-189 with Moises Henriques strangling the opposition batsmen in the second period with 1-34 from 10 overs. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues cruised to victory in emphatic style with Hughes seeing the side home with a stylish unbeaten 80. It was a welcome return to form for the left-handed opener who was to figure in the Ashes Series in the coming weeks. The match also saw another polished spell from Nathan Hauritz who had quickly moved on from his exclusion from the Australian side to remind everyone of his talent.

The ground is famous for big scores and sixes aplenty and this match did not disappoint with Usman Khawaja (121) scoring a beautifully paced century that included 12 fours and four sixes. He was well backed up by David Warner (40) and Nic Maddinson (65) as NSW raced to 1-110 from their first session enough to secure the bonus point. Their final total of 6-317 look unassailable but a superb innings from Michael Klinger (101) was complemented by an astonishing assault by former New South Welshman Daniel Christian. He smashed all the bowlers around the ground for 85 from 40 balls including six sixes. Nathan Hauritz held his nerve to bowl Christian but Klinger continued the onslaught and the game looked over for the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues as the visitors whittled down the target to nine runs from 14 balls with four wickets in hand. Enter Brett Lee. With eight runs needed from the final six balls he miraculously bowled a series of sizzling yorkers to limit the Redbacks to four runs from the over to see NSW home by three runs. Doug Bollinger was equally as impressive picking up 3-59 as the home side walked away knowing that this was one that almost got away.

Fielding a strong side containing seven players with International experience NSW were unable to make use of the excellent batting conditions. Having limped to 4-89 after 20 overs NSW were indebted to a forceful 93 run eighth wicket partnership between Stephen O Keefe (48) and Nathan Hauritz (51). Both played some big shots towards the end in the hope of accelerating enough to give their side a defendable total. With Victoria left to chase 114 from 25 overs with nine wickets in hand it was going to require a major collapse if the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were to salvage the match. But after Matthew Wade (105) scored a century it was only a matter of time to see how quickly Victoria reached the target which they did with 11 overs to spare. The NSW bowlers tried hard but it was a flat performance from a team that had played seven Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield games and eight Ryobi One Day Cup matches in three months. They needed of a break.

The match started poorly. David Warner was bowled first ball with the home side never really recovering. A series of soft dismissals saw NSW reach 5-59 at the break and although the Bulls were not much further ahead (2-78) the momentum had been lost. Hopes that the lower order could rescue the situation were dashed with only Sean Abbott s 20 from 15 balls providing any resistance as NSW were bowled out for a lowly 125 with 28 balls of their innings remaining. Queensland cantered home by six wickets with the skipper James Hopes (41) leading the way. With seven overs to spare it had been a decisive win by the visitors and the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were left to rue a performance that was out of character in relation to the rest of their season. Results in the final round of matches would now decide whether they would make the Final. ROUND 10 VICTORIA VS RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES Melbourne Cricket Ground 23 February 2011 The equation was simple. Win this match to make the Final or lose and miss out. That was what faced the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues as they took the field against Victoria on a warm Wednesday night at the MCG. Things didn t start well with Wade and Finch putting on 114 in 16 overs as all the bowlers felt the heat of the strokeplay. In reply Hughes and Jaques attacked but still conceded a 21 run deficit at the innings break to leave the match delicately balanced moving into the second phase. The second half was equally painful for NSW as 167 runs were added with Wade (101) and Finch (68) laying the platform followed by Quiney (43) who provided the power hitting at the end. It was tough work for all the bowlers but Henriques was the most successful with 2-44 from his eight overs. Needing 178 from 25 overs with nine wickets in hand the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues knew that their season was on the line. They needed a major contribution from someone but after Hughes (64) Jaques (35) and Henriques (29) all departed the game looked over at 8-244 in the 42nd over. Enter Stephen O Keefe who had other ideas and played a gem of an innings that involved some great hitting and improvisation. A scoop shot off Nannes for a boundary took NSW to the brink of victory with a mere two runs required from three balls. But in attempting to finish the match in one blow O Keefe was caught and bowled to leave the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues on the end of an agonising one run loss. The disappointment of missing out on the Final was felt by all but the heroics of O Keefe were a testament to how far the talented all-rounder had progressed over the season.

NSW made first use of an excellent Adelaide pitch posting 71 runs in the first seven overs before Daniel Smith (45) fell after an explosive start which saw him take on a fired-up Shaun Tait in a war of words. The run rate then slowed as several more wickets fell including Nic Maddinson for a golden duck. It was left to David Warner to hold back on his attacking instincts producing a mature innings of 73 not out from 58 balls as the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues finished on a par score of 5-168. The Redbacks start would be vital and Stephen O Keefe was superb picking up the first three wickets with some subtle changes of pace. Stuart Clark (3-28) chipped in with two wickets to reduce the home side to 5-51. However the imposing figure of Kieron Pollard was still at the crease. He suddenly looked like winning the game single-handedly when he charged to 53 from 24 balls before there was a bizarre repeat of the 2009 Champions League Final in India. Nathan Hauritz tossed the ball up only to see Pollard launch it towards the fans at long on. Standing in the way was Moises Henriques who abruptly ended the onslaught with one of the catches of the season From here the South Australian challenge petered out and the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were able to bowl the home side out for 147 winning by 21 runs.

TV Umpire SD Fry ROUND 2 RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES VS WESTERN AUSTRALIA ANZ Stadium 9 January 2011 The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were put to the sword by the Warriors Chris Gayle and Shaun Marsh in a pulsating start to the match. Gayle (61 from 30 balls) and Marsh (85 from 45 balls) smashed 101 from the first eight overs. All of the bowlers suffered at their hands with 32 coming from one Scott Coyte over. When they departed skipper Stuart Clark was able to put a brake on the scoring to some extent with the last 21 balls of the innings only going for 23 runs. Clark returned the most economical figures of 2-27 from four overs while Nic Maddinson suffered a hand injury that would be later diagnosed as a broken thumb keeping him out for six weeks. The home side got off to a poor start before David Warner opened up hitting 51 from 33 balls. When he fell with the score at 3-90 in the 11th over NSW still held hopes of victory but after Hughes departed for 25 the heavens opened. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues were left stranded on 4-104 after 11.5 overs still 20 runs short of victory on the Duckworth-Lewis Method. With no further play possible it was a disappointing end to the night although NSW supporters realised that the chances of a win were remote.

The match started with an outstanding debut by pace bowler Pat Cummins. The 17-year-old from Penrith was a surprise call up but showed nerves of steel as he bowled with pace (145km hr) and accuracy recording the superb figures of 3-29 from four overs. He was well backed up by all the other bowlers as the visitors posted a respectable 6-152 from their 20 overs. In reply Warner (38) and Khawaja (33) were cruising at 0-69 at the start of the ninth over before a mini collapse left them at 5-119 after 17.4 overs. Enter Ben Rohrer who realising the need to accelerate placed the ball in gaps to keep the target within grasp. The Tigers looked safe with 18 runs required from the last over but Rohrer played the shot of the tournament off the first ball stepping outside off stump and ramping a near-perfect yorker over fine leg for six giving the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues a chance. Surviving a run out and a dropped catch Rohrer came to the last ball requiring a boundary to win. It was a full toss but he could not find the rope as NSW went down in a thriller. With two losses on the trot the team realised that there could be no more slip-ups. NEW SOUTH WALES v TA S M A N I A At ANZ Stadium Sydney Olympic Park January 19 2011. Night game.

At 5-69 in the ninth over the season looked on the line before a crucial 61 run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Stephen O Keefe took NSW some way towards a defendable total. Khawaja was outstanding in posting 65 from 43 balls showing his adaptability to this format by scoring all around the ground. O Keefe (50) was equally impressive as he provided the finishing touches to the innings including a big six off Dirk Nannes in the final over to take the visitors to a respectable 7-168. The Bushrangers looked in the box seat at 1-100 in the 12th over. However the return of O Keefe provided the much needed spark as he dismissed Finch (53) and Hodge (22) in the space of three balls to give NSW renewed hope. The rest of the bowling was superb. Debutant all-rounder Sean Abbott produced a great spell (2-25) under pressure while Pat Cummins again responded magnificently to bowling at the death . Another debutant Tim Armstrong gave a great effort in the field and allowed captain Moises Henriques to marshal his bowlers diligently and efficiently to shut the Bushrangers out of the match. The final winning margin of 17 runs was just reward for the character shown by the young team. V I C TO R I A v N E W S O U T H WA L E S At Melbourne Cricket Ground Melbourne January 22 2011.

The Gabba bore the ravages of the flooding but the ground was in tremendous condition considering the amount of water and the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues had no hesitation in batting. Stuart Clark was back from injury as skipper and watched as his men struggled to make much progress with the bat with boundaries a rarity. David Warner epitomised the battle as the normally fluent opener struggled to 29 from 27 balls. It was left to Ben Rohrer to rescue the innings as he helped NSW take 38 from the final three overs to reach a respectable 7-140. Unleashing his characteristic ramp shot in the final over Rohrer ended up on 47 not out from 25 balls in an innings that included three fours and two sixes. He was well supported by Moises Henriques (34 from 27). In reply Queensland got off to a horror start as they slumped to 6-61. Skipper Clark was superb in conceding only 13 runs from his four overs while Cummins was equally impressive in picking up 3-24 with most of the runs coming off flying edges. The star of the show however was Sean Abbott who returned the excellent figures of 3-15 from three overs as the Bulls chase ended at 9-123.

New South Wales 2 pts ROUND 6 RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES VS QUEENSLAND ANZ Stadium 29 January 2011 Knowing a win would see them host the Preliminary Final the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues put in a terrible performance against Queensland whom they had beaten just five days earlier. The tone for the match was set from the first ball when Khawaja was bowled by James Hopes for a duck. From here NSW struggled with David Warner (4) going cheaply and no other player threatening to post a big score. Phil Jaques (22 from 19) provided the early impetus and it was then left to returning all-rounder Dominic Thornely to hold the innings together. Thornely who had been recalled from Grade cricket chipped the ball around sensibly to score 34 from 29 balls as NSW struggled to a below par score of 120 all out after 19.3 overs. That score would take some defending but the bowlers were hammered from the start. Hopes and Michael Lumb put on 76 in 7.4 overs before Lumb (40 from 26) was dismissed by Henriques. Hopes continued to attack and finished unbeaten on 62 from 38 balls as the visitors cruised to victory by eight wickets with over six overs to spare. All the bowlers suffered on a night to forget with the defeat meaning a trip to Hobart to face Tasmania in the do-or-die Preliminary Final with the winner earning a place at the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.

With rain circling the ground right up to the toss Tasmania made a bold decision to bat first and were immediately under pressure as NSW exploited the tension caused by the importance of the game. Brilliant opening spells by Stuart Clark (1-17) and Patrick Cummins (4-16) reduced the visitors to 4-25 as every ball looked like it might take a wicket. Cummins swung the ball at great pace and looked every inch a future Australian bowler while Clark rarely left a length as the Tigers froze in front of a large home crowd. They eventually succumbed for just 103 with three overs to spare. The key now would be to attack with the bat and who better in this situation than David Warner He started with a whirlwind of strokes including a six from Ben Hilfenhaus that went out of the ground over mid-wicket. He was well backed up by Daniel Smith (16) and the opening 50 came up in 4.1 overs. When Smith departed Warner accelerated and blew Tasmania apart. When the target was reached with nine wickets and 7.1 overs to spare he had scorched to 79 not out from 49 balls with eight fours and three sixes. It was just the sort of no fear innings that NSW required to get them home. FINAL SOUTH AUSTRALIA VS RTA SPEEDBLITZ BLUES Adelaide Oval 5 February 2011 In a match where they had their chances the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues went down by eight wickets to the Redbacks in front of a capacity crowd in Adelaide. The atmosphere in the ground was electric and the noise was deafening as David Warner and Daniel Smith walked out to open the batting. South Australia s tactic of leg-spinner Rashid taking the new ball backfired however as Warner cut him for two fours before blasting him for six. At 0-33 after 20 balls the omens were good before Warner (21) was bowled trying to hit Richardson over mid-wicket. From here the innings ebbed and flowed. Both Smith (43 from 35) and Moises Henriques (41 from 34) looked ready to dominate before they got out and as new batsman came in and had to settle the projected score of around 180 kept coming down. Only 14 runs came from the final 16 balls as the home side put the clamp on the NSW lower order resulting in a respectable but not unassailable 8-153 from their 20 overs. The RTA SpeedBlitz Blues bowling attack had been prolific throughout the competition and much was expected from them now. Klinger (30 from 18) showed aggression early but when Blizzard (6) came and went quickly the home side looked like faltering at 2-55. However this was the closest NSW came to victory. Harris (48 not out) and Borgas (62 not out) put on a century stand to take the Redbacks to victory by eight wickets with 15 balls to spare.Their batting was of the highest quality and NSW were unable to find the inspiration to break the partnership. Although stumbling at the final hurdle the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues had plenty to be proud of with the discovery of some quality youngsters during the competition as well as qualification for the Champions League.

Twenty20 became the dominant format with each State playing 12 games with just six 50 over matches. We were delighted to welcome Lend Lease as a major sponsor opening up a wide range of services to the players including education and employment opportunities. We are indeed fortunate to have their support. Australian Vice-Captain Alex Blackwell replaced Lisa Sthalekar as NSW Captain with a view to the future. Lisa had an outstanding record leading the Breakers to the last five consecutive WNCL 50 over titles and although disappointed she threw herself behind Alex and had one of her finest seasons with the bat and ball. Kate Blackwell also retired before a ball was bowled. She was completely comfortable with her decision and can be proud of her achievements after an outstanding career for both NSW and Australia. The Lend Lease Breakers qualified for both the 50 over and Twenty20 Finals after finishing on top of both tables. The place in the 50 over decider was not confirmed until the last round with the ACT and Victoria pushing us all the way. With one washout another loss in this competition could have proven costly on a congested table. Qualification for the Twenty20 Final was wrapped up in the penultimate round and the team finished the regular season with 10 wins from 12 games. Victoria finished strongly to pip South Australia for second spot earning the chance to defend their title. The Twenty20 Final was a run-fest at the Adelaide Oval with Victoria posting an imposing 164. The Breakers remained ahead of the target run-rate for most of the innings but were unable to maintain the momentum in the last few overs to finish an agonising four runs short. Leah Poulton s 76 from 45 balls was an outstanding display of aggressive batting in what was an excellent televised promotion of the women s game. The 50 over Final at the SCG a week later again saw Victoria score heavily to post 262 the highest ever team score in a Final. This time the Breakers were able to maintain a solid tempo throughout their innings thanks to Leah Poulton Alex Blackwell Lisa Sthalekar and Sarah Coyte. They were 2-191 when heavy rain ended the match 48 runs clear on the Duckworth Lewis Method meaning a 13th National title had been secured. The team played positive cricket throughout the season with experienced players dominating. They were clinical ruthless at times displaying to all the depth of talent within the squad. Opener Leah Poulton demolished all bowling attacks smashing 663 runs in both competitions and taking out the Belinda Clark Medal as Player of the Year. Alex Blackwell led by example. Her 158 against the Tasmanian Roar was the highest individual innings by a NSW player in the 50 over competition while her quick-fire 99 not out off 61 balls against ACT was the highest score by a player in the Twenty20 competition. Lisa Sthalekar was another to excel with both bat and ball during the season and her 357 runs and 23 wickets in both competitions were an outstanding return. Ellyse Perry Sharon Millanta and Sarah Coyte also made valuable contributions during the summer. NSW s depth was tested more in 2010 11 than at any time in the past with 20 players representing the Breakers. Seven players made their debut this summer including five in the round against South Australia that proved vital to the team retaining top position on the competition tables. A number of these debutants performed with distinction with the Australian players away on national duty and certainly enhanced their chances for future selection. The 2010 11 Lend Lease Breakers The Lend Lease Breakers were well represented in the Southern Stars squad during 2010 11. Alex Blackwell captained Australia in One Day and Twenty matches against England and New Zealand as well as the Ashes Test against England played at Bankstown Oval won by Australia. Other players to represent include Sarah Coyte Alyssa Healy Erin Osborne Ellyse Perry Leah Poulton and Lisa Sthalekar. Sharon Millanta was rewarded for years of toil by being named in the squad to tour England in June 2011. Ellyse Perry missed that tour after being selected in the Matildas squad to compete at the 2011 Women s Football World Cup in Germany. Ellyse now has the distinction of representing Australia at two World Cups in different sports and on behalf of all involved in the Lend Lease Breakers Program I congratulate her on this outstanding achievement My first season with the Lend Lease Breakers was very rewarding and a great learning experience that will assist me in the season ahead. I wish to thank State Cricket Department Manager David Thompson for his support and assistance provided throughout the season. I also wish to thank our Support Staff for their professionalism and dedication to the Program and players including Physiotherapist Kate Leslie Strength and Conditioning Coach Matt Dwyer Specialist Coaches Corey Richards Michael Maclennan Ben Sawyer and Christina Matthews and guest coaches Stuart MacGill and Nathan Bracken. Thanks also to Gary Crowfoot and the NSW Regional Directors of Coaching who were invited to assist with various training and match-day activities. Special thanks go to the NSW Selection Panel for their time and effort in selecting teams assisting at training sessions and with team management when requested. Team Manager Martha Webb did another outstanding job organising the girls and helping me along in my first year and on behalf of all involved with the team I wish Martha all the very best for the birth of her second child during the off-season. Finally on behalf of all involved in the Lend Lease Breakers Program I would like to thank Chief Executive David Gilbert and the NSW Cricket Board for their ongoing support. The resources available to the squad are the envy of other States and underpin the success achieved on the field.

ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 49 2010 11 WOMEN S N ATIONAL CRICKET L EAGUE 50 OVER ROUND 1 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS TASMANIAN ROAR North Sydney Oval 16 October 2010 This was the first appearance by Tasmania in the WNCL 50 over competition and they received a tough initiation from the Lend Lease Breakers who handed the newcomers a 235 run thumping. The Breakers piled on a massive 5-395 the highest team total in the history of the WNCL which surpassed the old mark by 86 runs Alex Blackwell top scored with 157 from 111 balls the best ever individual score by a NSW player in the WNCL and the second highest overall. She and Leah Poulton put on 170 for the first wicket with Poulton out for 86 from 70 while Lisa Sthalekar hit a stylish 75 from 61. Tasmania tried hard but was bowled out for 160 in the 37th over giving NSW two bonus points. The Roar s lower order of Erin Burns (51) Emma Thompson (17) and Bronwyn Page (19) were particularly stoic however they lacked the firepower to challenge. Ellyse Perry was the best of the NSW bowlers returning 4-10 from 7.4 overs while Nicole Goodwin Lisa Sthalekar Lisa Griffith Angela Reakes and Sarah Coyte took a wicket each. ROUND 2 QUEENSLAND FIRE VS LEND LEASE BREAKERS Allan Border Field 30 October 2010 The Lend Lease Breakers won this match by three wickets and secured an important bonus point. Queensland won the toss and elected to bat first. The young line-up showed great application against their more fancied opponents posting 8-183 from 50 overs. Beth Mooney top scored with 50 while Fran Whittaker (35 from 69) Danielle Hollis (27 from 51) and Georgia Harris (23 from 38) made important contributions. In reply the Breakers made 7-187 from 30.5 overs. Batting at number three for the 50 over matches Alyssa Healy was named Player of the Match for her 59 from 49 balls. Lisa Sthalekar was the second top score with 43 from 41 while openers Alex Blackwell (20 from 25) and Leah Poulton (30 from 30) ensured a good start. At 3-170 the Lend Lease Breakers looked to be cruising however they lost their next four wickets for just 12 runs. It was a minor hiccup though with Sarah Coyte and Ellyse Perry seeing the side home.

Teams arrived at the ground early morning to find the covers on and the rain falling steadily. The morning was spent in the change rooms before a break in the weather saw play underway at 2pm and the match reduced to 40 overs per side. Batting first the Lend Lease Breakers made a cautious start moving to 0-44 before Leah Poulton lost her wicket for 22. A few runs later and on the same individual score Alex Blackwell was caught behind. The Spitit climbed further on top when Alyssa Healy was trapped lbw for three. The destroyer through all this was young quick Annie Maloney who had 3-18 from her five overs when the rain came again. After another short wait it was decided that no more play would be possible and the points shared. It was more bad luck for the Spirit whose 2010 11 campaigns in both the 50 over and Twenty20 competitions would be plagued by rain almost causing them to miss the Finals in both. ROUND 4 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS WESTERN FURy Sydney Cricket Ground 27 November 2010 This was the first appearance at the SCG for the Lend Lease Breakers since the 2008 09 WNCL Final and for Sarah Coyte Claire Koski Kara Sutherland and Angela Reakes their first match at the famous ground. With Western Australia batting first the Breakers produced a disciplined performance in the field to dismiss their opponents for 157 in 40.1 overs. Sharon Millanta bowled with great control and guile for her 3-26 from seven overs while Ellyse Perry (2-32) and Lisa Sthalekar (2-16) also impressed. Unfortunately though Sthalekar was forced from the field in her ninth over after splitting the webbing in her bowling hand. Alex Blackwell was missing the game through illness so Alyssa Healy opened the batting with Leah Poulton with both players taking full advantage of the new ball.They raced to 0-44 before Healy fell lbw for 20.Then with the score on 65 Rene Farrell held on to a return catch to dismiss Poulton for 30. With Sthalekar unable to bat the opportunity presented for some of the lower order batters to have time in the middle with the game on the line. Sarah Aley seized her chance by making 28 from 36 balls while Ellyse Perry s 31 not out from 51 deliveries was vital in getting the team over the line by four wickets.

Even with seven players out on national duty losing was not an option Fielding first the Breakers made early headway thanks to the experienced combination of Sharon Millanta and Nicole Goodwin. However South Australia rallied through an 85 run third wicket stand between Angela Moritz (53) and Lauren Ebsary (46) before a lower order cameo by Karen Rolton (36) saw them to 8-192 at the innings end. NSW made a steady start to their chase with openers Kath Koschel and Kate Waetford putting on 79 runs. Waetford was the first out for 36 while Koschel went on to post a Player of the Match 57. The loss of three wickets didn t slow down the Breakers chase as Sarah Aley (21) and Hannah Trollip (18) continued to chip away. However both found themselves back in the pavilion with just under 50 runs to get and South Australia had a sniff. However any chance the home team had of securing the points was whisked away by a brilliant sixth wicket partnership between former Southern Star Michelle Goszko and a rising star 17-year-old Nicola Carey. ROUND 6 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS ACT METEORS Drummoyne Oval 30 January 2011 A brilliant performance by Ellyse Perry saw the Lend Lease Breakers prevail by seven wickets with 146 balls to spare. After missing the previous day s Twenty20 clash because of a soccer match Perry ripped through the ACT batting line-up taking career best figures of 5-11 from nine overs.They were also the best ever figures by a NSW bowler in the WNCL surpassing Sarah Andrews 5-16 against Victoria in 2005 06. ACT who could have hosted the WNCL Final with a win were all out for 103 in 39.1 overs. The Lend Lease Breakers chase wasn t without drama though losing 3-31 before an unbeaten 74 run stand between Leah Poulton and Sarah Coyte brought up victory one ball into the 26th over. Poulton played the perfect innings for the situation showing a ton of patience in her 43 from 77 balls. Coyte was also in exquisite touch using her feet beautifully to the spinners in her 35 not out from 39 balls. The win ensured the Lend Lease Breakers a place in their 15th consecutive WNCL 50 over Final which they would also host at the SCG after finishing on top of the ladder with five wins and a washout.Their opponents would be arch rivals Victoria who did exceptionally well to sneak into second position despite a number of wash outs during the season.

Playing on the same pitch that Australia and England both scored over 300 runs in a ODI just a week earlier this clash between fierce rivals was always going to be a high scoring affair. Alex Blackwell won the toss and elected to field first a tactic that had worked well for NSW against the Vics in the past. Her decision seemed to be vindicated when Sharon Millanta picked up Elyse Villani then Ellyse Perry trapped the dangerous Meg Lanning. Millanta claimed her second wicket by removing Jess Cameron reducing Victoria to 3-49. However this is where the Spirit s resurgence began first with a 56 run fourth wicket stand between captain Rachael Haynes and Sarah Elliott then a 63 run fifth wicket partnership by Haynes and Emma Inglis. By now Victoria had all the momentum. Inspired by the skipper s match turning 68 from 76 the lower order fired with Inglis (47 from 44) Renee Melton (20 from 29) and Clea Smith (25 from 23) helping get the score up to 263 the highest ever score in the history of the WNCL Finals. If the Breakers were daunted by the chase at hand they certainly didn t show it. Leah Poulton picked up where she left off in the Twenty20 Final hitting 51 from as many balls as the home team raced to 1-84. Poulton s dismissal brought Lisa Sthalekar to the crease with she and Alex Blackwell adding 34 more runs in quick time before Sthalekar was caught behind for 23 off 26. From here it became the Blackwell and Coyte show. They took the score to 2-193 in the 34th over when rain came and brought a sudden end to the match. At the time NSW was a dominant 49 runs ahead on the Duckworth-Lewis Method. Blackwell was named Player of the Final for her 68 not out from 81 balls while Coyte capped off a successful summer with 44 not out from 47 balls. Raising the Ruth Preddey Trophy was an amazing effort by the Lend Lease Breakers who went through the 2010 11 WNCL 50 over competition undefeated. It was also their sixth WNCL title in a row equalling the record set by NSW teams between 1996 97 and 2001 02. It was also the team s 13th 50 over crown in 15 seasons.

The Premiers flip fell in favour of the home side and in her first match as the full-time NSW captain Alex Blackwell elected to field first. Tasmania was held to just 9-85 from their 20 overs. It was an impressive first up effort by the bowlers especially debutant Kara Sutherland who finished with 3-24 from her four overs and the Player of the Match Award. The Breakers took just 9.2 overs to reach the victory target with Blackwell making 40 not out from 24 balls in the seven wicket win. Leah Poulton also contributed a quick-fire 19 from 10 balls and Alyssa Healy 10 from eight. ROUND 2 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS TASMANIAN ROAR North Sydney Oval 17 October 2010 Game two of the competition saw a determined effort from the Roar as they put on 3-142 batting first. Whilst the Tasmanian batters were rewarded for their application the same could not be said for the Lend Lease Breakers effort in the field with dropped catches and poor bowling meaning the only three wickets to fall came from run-outs. Alyssa Healy ensured there would be no such slump with the bat however smashing the first ball of the Breakers innings for six. She went on to make 37 from just 17 deliveries before losing her wicket with the score on 49. Losing Healy didn t mean a break in momentum for NSW with a 41 run second wicket partnership between Leah Poulton and Sarah Coyte followed by a 51 run third wicket stand between Coyte and Ellyse Perry. Coyte finished unbeaten on 48 from 38 balls while Leah Poulton (24 from 24) and Ellyse Perry (25 from 24) also enjoyed their time in the middle.

The Fire was fielding a very young side following the departure of Australian players Kirsten Pike and Melissa Bulow as well as veteran Jude Coleman during the off-season. To make things worse Queensland and Australian captain Jodie Fields was still unavailable through injury. Not surprisingly the Breakers completely outgunned their opponents in the 69 run win. Batting first they piled on 4-166 from their 20 overs with Leah Poulton (55 from 42) leading the way. Alex Blackwell also made 43 from 32 balls while Lisa Sthalekar hit 37 not out from 28 balls. Only two Queensland batters reached double figures Fran Whittaker (20) and Jessica Jonassen (39). Australian U 21 leg spinner Angela Reakes was the pick of the NSW bowlers with 4-19 from her four overs with Ellyse Perry (2-15) and Lisa Sthalekar (1-19) the other wicket-takers. Queensland never challenged finishing at 8-97. ROUND 4 QUEENSLAND FIRE VS LEND LEASE BREAKERS Allan Border Field 31 October 2010 The Lend Lease Breakers recorded their fourth win from as many starts in this competition with an 81 run win over Queensland. Batting first NSW made 3-177 from their 20 overs setting a new record for the highest team score in the short history of WNCL Twenty20 competition. Leah Poulton and Sarah Coyte scored the lions share of the runs with Poulton hitting 75 from just 55 balls while Coyte continued her impressive start to the summer with 55 from 45 balls. Together they put on 121 runs for the second wicket. In reply Queensland fell well short of the target ending the match on 8-96. Lisa Sthalekar and Sarah Coyte snared two wickets each with Angela Reakes and Kara Sutherland earning one apiece. It was another dominant performance by the Lend Lease Breakers however the players knew their big test would come in a fortnight s time when they faced their nemesis Victoria the defending champions.

The match started in overcast conditions with NSW posting a modest but competitive 6-125. Victoria enjoyed the better start to the match reducing their rivals to 2-33 before a 51 run stand between Alex Blackwell and Lisa Sthalekar put the game back on an even keel. This was followed by a 46 run stand between Sthalekar and Sarah Coyte with Sthalekar scoring 41 from 34 balls to help change the momentum of the game. Victoria made a bright start to their chase putting on 32 runs before some quick thinking by wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy saw Meg Lanning run out for 24 after an lbw shout was turned down. In her first match back from injury Erin Osborne then snared the wickets of Jessica Cameron Sarah Elliott and Rachael Haynes. The Spirit never recovered from the set-back finishing their 20 overs at 9-90 with Osborne taking 4-13. It was a complete performance in the field by NSW who in the process registered their first ever win over Victoria in Twenty20 cricket.

Losing Elyse Villani early to a sharp caught and bowled by Sharon Millanta the home team quickly got on the front foot through a 61 run second wicket stand between Meg Lanning and Jessica Cameron. The game changed quickly when they both fell with the score on 70 then two brilliant pieces of fielding by Sarah Coyte at backward point saw the Vics in further trouble as Sarah Elliott and Rachael Haynes were run out. The brakes had been well and truly applied and after a promising start the Vics finished on 7-124. The Breakers reached the target in 17.2 overs for the loss of just two wickets. Normally a dasher Alyssa Healy showed a different side to her game by scoring a patient 55 not out from 59 balls while Alex Blackwell provided the aggression with 37 from 27 deliveries.

Winning the toss and batting the home side piled on 5-158 from their 20 overs. Leah Poulton was brilliant in hitting 40 runs from 26 balls with two sixes one which landed in the Grandstand while the other hit the tractor chute and just kept going Batting at number three Lisa Sthalekar top-scored with 53 from 38 deliveries hitting five boundaries in her stay. Regular wickets meant Western Australia was never in the hunt. Ellyse Perry broke through early with the scalp of Jenny Wallace before Sthalekar (3-15) and Osborne (2-27) spun the Fury out of the game. Sthalekar took two sharp caught and bowled chances and was named Player of the Match while Alyssa Healy executed two smart stumpings one to each spinner. ROUND 8 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS WESTERN FURy Blacktown Olympic Park No. 1 28 November 2010 The Lend Lease Breakers went into this match still minus their regular skipper Alex Blackwell and also with Lisa Sthalekar under a fitness cloud after splitting her webbing the day before. Batting first under the threat of rain Western Australia managed just 7-99 from their 20 overs. Ellyse Perry did the early damage with 3-12 from her four overs while left-arm quick Nicole Goodwin chimed in with two wickets at the death. Sharon Millanta was also impressive with 1-11 from her four overs. NSW s chase got underway with a 55 run opening stand between Leah Poulton and Alyssa Healy. Poulton was the first to go out caught for 25. It was a different style of innings from Poulton compared to her smash and grab effort two days earlier. She faced 30 balls in her innings but only hit one boundary a six. Sarah Coyte came and went without scoring but before Western Australia could get a sniff Healy and Sarah Aley combined for a 43 run third wicket stand which put the game beyond doubt. Victory came in the 17th over with seven wickets in hand. Healy remained not out on 45 from 46 balls picking up the Player of the Match award in the process.

Selectors had called up several players from the victorious Second XI which had won the Cricket Australia Cup just the month prior to fill the gaps. This included Nicola Carey and Hannah Trollip both of whom were withdrawn from the U 18 National Championships for their senior debuts while 100 game veteran Michelle Goszko was called out of representative retirement to lend some experience. Captain Sarah Aley won the toss and elected to bat however her young side appeared to be star-struck posting just 6-109 from their 20 overs. There were only two contributions of note - 32 not out from Kath Koschel batting at three and starlet Nicola Carey who struck a brazen 34 from 27 balls coming in at seven. Ill-disciplined bowling would cost the Breakers in the field. While wickets were not falling South Australia was struggling to keep pace with the required run rate. However the experience of former Southern Stars Karen Rolton and Lauren Ebsary got them home. Both finished with a flurry of boundaries taking full advantage of some wayward deliveries. Victory for the home side came in the 19th over. SOUTH AUSTRALIA v NEW SOUTH WALES At Adelaide Oval Adelaide January 4 2011. South Australia won by eight wickets. Toss New South Wales. SA 2 pts.

A loss would have brought them back to the pack meaning a loss or bad weather in the last round could prove disastrous. With the pressure on the young guns delivered a morale boosting 14 run win. Winning the toss and batting they ground out 8-120. Claire Koski top scored with 27 from 47 while Sarah Aley played an all to brief cameo hitting 20 from nine with two fours and a six. Two useful contributions from Hannah Trollip (15 from 17) and Kara Sutherland (15 from 10) meant a defendable total was at least on the board. A big effort was needed in the field and it was veteran Sharon Millanta who delivered by removing Karen Rolton early. A 52 run second wicket stand by Julie Woerner (33) and Lauren Ebsary (32) put the game slightly back in the home side s favour before two wickets to Alison Parkin set NSW on course for victory. With the score 3-75 the runs dried up and the required run rate climbed. Two more wickets to Angela Reakes and one to Nicola Carey effectively ended the Scorpions charge as they finished on 6-106 from their 20 overs.

The highlight was a sensational 99 not out from 61 balls by captain Alex Blackwell. After winning the toss and choosing the bat the Breakers were in early trouble at 3-15 with Blackwell and Sarah Coyte at the crease. Together they not only resurrected the innings but took the game out of the ACT s hands with a brilliant 94 run stand for the fourth wicket. The partnership finally ended when Coyte was stumped for 40 from 34 balls but Blackwell continued to plunder the attack. She raced into the 90s and needed seven runs from the last two balls to reach her ton. Unfortunately the penultimate ball was a dot as she struck the last ball of the innings for six leaving herself stranded on 99 Having had success opening the bowling in International Twenty20 games off-spinner Lisa Sthalekar was thrown the new ball. She answered her captain s call with three early wickets. At 3-14 the ACT failed to rally and they limped to 8-119 at the end of their 20 overs. Sthalekar struck twice in the latter overs to give herself career best figures of 5-11 from four overs. ROUND 12 LEND LEASE BREAKERS VS ACT METEORS Drummoyne Oval 31 January 2011 The ACT snatched a thrilling three run win at Drummoyne Oval to end their season on a high. Batting first a more disciplined effort saw them to a competitive 9-130 from their 20 overs with former Breaker Charlotte Anneveld (20 from 11) and Aimee Harris (20 from 22) top scoring. It was a solid team effort by the Lend Lease Breakers in the field. Sharon Millanta was the only player to take two wickets while Sthalekar Goodwin Osborne Reakes and Sutherland picked up one each. With the aim of preparing for the Final in less than a week s time the Breakers tinkered with their batting line-up pushing Alex Blackwell down the list and resting Sarah Coyte. At 4-100 NSW was cruising to victory however a dramatic collapse including two run outs put the game on an even footing heading into the final over. Alex Blackwell tried desperately to get her side over the line but she was bowled five runs short of victory. Only one more run was added as three more wickets fell with ACT getting home by the barest of margins.

The Spirit had scored an emphatic win in the decider the previous summer and the NSW players were desperate to make amends this time around. Victorian captain Rachael Haynes called correctly at the toss and had no hesitation batting on a pitch that looked to have plenty of runs in it. The Lend Lease Breakers again opened the bowling with Lisa Sthalekar and the off-spinner tasted immediate success in her 150th interstate match removing Elyse Villani cheaply. Opening bat Meg Lanning (74 from 56) was the danger player and she certainly lived up to her reputation. She scored freely all around the ground making NSW pay for dropping a sharp chance early. Lanning received great support from Jess Cameron (26 from 20) and Sarah Elliott (23 from 23) and together with some late hitting from Haynes (15 from 7) the Vics posted a daunting 5-161 at the end of their 20 overs. The Breakers lost Alyssa Healy in the first over before a 50 run second wicket stand between Blackwell and Leah Poulton got them back on track. After Blackwell fell for 12 from 15 Lisa Sthalekar joined forces with Poulton as they piled on another 44 runs in quick time. At the half-way mark NSW was on top with Sthalekar and Poulton scoring at will. However the loss of Sthalekar (22 from 14) followed quickly by Coyte changed the momentum yet again. Poulton was still in rampant form and the Vics looked to deny her the strike as much as possible. Their plan worked as the Breakers opener holed out to Lanning at deep mid-wicket for 76 from 45 balls attempting to up the scoring rate. Needing to keep touch with the required run rate Sarah Aley and Erin Osborne were run out while Claire Koski and Angela Reakes holed out attempting to clear the boundary. An unbeaten 13 from seven balls by Kara Sutherland kept NSW in it up until the last ball but it wasn t to be. Victoria held on by four runs for back-to-back titles.

Despite some indifferent results there were plenty of positives to be gained from the season. The Futures League team again played six Three Day matches and a Twenty20 tournament while the Second XI played Victoria and Western Australia in Four Day matches both at home and away. An extraordinary 49 players were selected for these games. An horrendous injury toll plus the large number of players lost to Australian duty meant that we never had our best U 23 players to pick from. Having said that the season saw the exciting emergence of teenagers Patrick Cummins Nic Bills Sean Abbott Tim Armstrong and Luke Doran who all played either First Class or Domestic Limited Overs cricket. The contributions of established State players David Warner Daniel Smith Peter Forrest Moises Henriques and Phil Jaques provided an ideal link between Grade and First Class cricket and helped to give our young players an understanding of the requirements for success at the next level.

The team captained by Erin Osborne contained members of the Lend Lease Breakers Breakers Development Squad and NSW U 18 Squad with an eye on selecting players to represent NSW in the Women s National Cricket League (WNCL) round against South Australia in January 2011 where seven regular players would be missing due to international duty. The team was untroubled in the Preliminary Rounds a mix of 50 over and Twenty20 matches securing double bonus points in three matches. There were also several individual highlights during the carnival including Centuries to Claire Koski (134 not out) and Kath Koschel (102) Leg-spinner Katie Mack snaring 13 wickets to be the tournament s leading wicket-taker A second wicket partnership of 211 between Kath Koschel and Claire Koski against Western Australia. In the Final NSW won the toss and compiled 8-272 thanks to halfcenturies from Kate Waetford (75) and Erin Osborne (50). In reply the ACT struggled against the leg-spin of Katie Mack (3-19) and Angela Reakes (2-6) to be bundled out for 80. Claire Koski led the team s batting with 296 runs at 74.00 while Katie Mack headed the bowling averages with 13 wickets at 6.08 supported by Kara Sutherland who claimed 11 wickets at 10.73 with the new ball. All-rounder Nicola Carey was very impressive in the middle order scoring 137 runs at 34.25 and claiming seven wickets at 8.8 while opener Kath Koschel with 227 runs at 45.40 also took her opportunity. Both were among nine Second XI players selected for the WNCL matches against South Australia. Thanks are extended to our support staff in Canberra including coaches Lisa Sthalekar and Ben Sawyer Conditioner Richard Lynch and Physiotherapist Kate Leslie. Thanks also to Chair of Selectors Kerry Marshall who travelled to Canberra to view matches. In conclusion my appreciation is extended to the NSW Cricket Board for their continued support of Female Programs conducted by the State Cricket Department. The Cricket Australia Cup provides an important step in the female pathway bridging U 18 and WNCL competitions.

The NSW team was chosen after a comprehensive program that began with City selection trials in April 2010 and a pre-season fitness program commencing in May followed by weekly skills based sessions from July to November. Players also attended a training camp in July before the City vs Country series in September. Prior to the Championships the team played a week of practice matches against the Tasmanian U 19 squad. The tournament was designed to include two Two-Day matches followed by two Twenty20 and two Limited Overs matches before another Two-Day match as the final round. However wet weather caused this schedule to be altered significantly. Only one Two Day match was possible with other games reduced to 50 over matches. Several matches were also abandoned due to the rain.

On a positive note this was the first time in two seasons that some players had a Championship to compete at. The initial NSW U 18 Squad consisted of 18 players with 10 players residing in Sydney and eight based regionally. An induction camp was help in April 2010 where individual pre-season programs were devised for each player. From August through to January the Sydney-based squad trained weekly at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Following the conclusion of their Emerging Breakers Programs regional athletes also had access to satellite coaching. Matthew Dwyer and Richard Lynch took over the Strength and Conditioning Program from Dean Harriton bringing this facet of the U 18 Program in line with the Lend Lease Breakers. The final squad for the Championships was selected at the conclusion of the City vs Country Series won 2-0 by City who retained the Maree Lee Trophy. The selected players then attended a three day camp at Blacktown Olympic Park to sharpen up their skills prior to Christmas. Prior to Christmas the team s captain Hannah Trollip and all-rounder Nicola Carey were selected in the Lend Lease Breakers team to play against South Australia. Whilst this was great news for the players it did create a hole that needed to be filled as the U 18 Championships were playing at the same time. Therefore Jo Lawson was added to the squad and was a wonderful addition to the team. The National Championships were held in Adelaide from 5 11 January 2011. NSW were by far the standout side going through the tournament undefeated with all of the players contributing to the success.

The NSW team for the tournament was chosen after a comprehensive program that began with City selection trials in April 2010 followed by a pre-season fitness program in May and weekly skills sessions from July to November. A training camp took place in July followed by the City vs Country series in October and pre-Championship in December. The tournament was scheduled to comprise two Twenty20 and 50 over matches followed by three Two-Day matches. Several of these matches however were effected by wet weather with NSW finishing a disappointing seventh.

The City vs Country matches were held in late October at Blacktown Olympic Park. City won both matches therefore retaining the Belinda Haggett-Rober tson Trophy. The NSW team was selected from these matches. This was the first season where only a NSW U 15 and U 18 team was selected. As a result Cricket NSW decided against running the annual Talented Athlete Camp with the NSW U 15 assembling at Blacktown Olympic Park three days before the start of the Championships. The U 15 Female National Championships were held in Sydney from 3-7 December 2010. The tournament had been scheduled to run for longer with a mixture of Twenty20 and 45 over matches however torrential rain forced the cancellation of matches on the first three days of the tournament. As a result the fixtures were changed to all Twenty20 matches with the team at the top of the table at the end of the preliminary rounds declared champions. NSW performed strongly throughout the tournament and heading into the final match against Queensland were still a chance of claiming the trophy if they won with double bonus points. Unfortunately this was not achieved and Queensland claimed the Christina Matthews Shield. Thanks must go to all the coaches involved in the Under 15 program especially Head Coach Sarah Aley. Special mention must go to Lisa Sthalekar (manager) Andrew Renkert (physiotherapist) Alyssa Healy (IT analysis) and Jordon Lumby (captain) who supported and led the team well.

NSW remained undefeated for the remainder of the Carnival including an outright win over Queensland in the final round. Centuries were registered by Darren Whittingham who stroked a magnificent 140 opening the batting against Northern Territory Simon Moore was equally impressive with 107 against Queensland and Mark Littlewood who remained 101 not out against Victoria. Western Australia took out the Championships remaining undefeated for the duration of the Championships in an impressive display. Simon Moore completed a fine Championships when he became NSW s all-time leading run scorer passing current Coach Mark Curry. Simon s run tally now stands at 2 200.

Teams were selected in November 2010 with the women s selection trial held at the Gujarat NRE Indoor Centre with the men playing a trial match at Blacktown Olympic Park. The women s team prepared for the February tournament with a number of net sessions culminating with two-days of matches against a North Coast XI in Port Macquarie. The men s final hit out was a match at the SCG against an SCG XI two days before heading to Alice Springs. No doubt the highlight for both sides was being presented their caps in front of 35 000 by former Australian Captain and NSW Cricket Board Director Mark Taylor during the innings break of the Australia vs England One Day International. The NSW men went through the preliminary rounds undefeated including a thrilling win over Queensland in the last round with one ball to spare setting up a replay of last season s Final against Western Australia. In the decider NSW batted first and were restricted to 5-143. But as has been proven time after time runs on the board and building scoreboard pressure is the key and this match was no different with NSW holding Western Australia to 7-127. John Duckett was named Player of the Final for his 55 with Pat Rosser Player of the Tournament with 200 runs at an average of 40 strike rate of 140 and also 12 wickets to his name. The NSW women s team contested a tri-series against Northern Territory and the ACT winning their fourth title in a row with a decisive victory over the ACT in the Final bowling them out for just 47 in reply to their 5-143. Samantha Hinton was named Player of the Final.

TORO GROUNDS OF THE yEAR First Grade Joe McAleer Reserve (Blacktown) Runners Up Bankstown Oval (Bankstown) and Hurstville Oval (St George) Lower Grade Ground of the year Grahame Thomas Oval (Bankstown) SEASON HIGHLIGHTS Tony Clark played in his 500th First Grade match during a career spanning three decades and three clubs (Sutherland CampbelltownCamden and now Blacktown). In 2010 Clark s outstanding and exceptional service to the SCA was recognised with Life Membership to the Association. Tony Clark Randwick-Petersham s Adam Coyte (223 not out) became the youngest player in the competition s 117-season history to score a double-century at the age of 19 years and 314 days against St George at Coogee Oval. Dominic Thornely CAPTAINS OF THE yEAR First Grade Ryan Nelson (Northern District) Second Grade Ben Garratt (Gordon) Third Grade Darryn Bull (Bankstown) Fourth Grade Ryan Bolger (Northern District) Fifth Grade David Farrell (Manly-Warringah) SPIRIT OF CRICKET Gordon won this award in 2010 11 judged by officiating umpires who assessed each team s support for the Spirit of Cricket as set out in the Preamble to the Laws of Cricket during each match. Leading clubs Gordon 8.01 points average Sydney University 7.99 Northern District 7.91 Sutherland 7.81 Western Suburbs 7.76 St George 7.75 BOB SIMPSON AWARD COACH OF THE yEAR Sydney University s Gary Whitaker won the Bob Simpson Award. His club was crowned Premiers in the First Grade First Grade Limited-Over and the Poidevin-Gray Shield competitions and placed fifth position in the coveted Club Championship. Hawkesbury s Anthony Kershler passed 6 000 runs and 700 wickets in First Grade. He is just the third player after Ken Gulliver (9 322 runs and 1 029 wickets) and Ken Hall (8 207 runs and 791 wickets) to achieve this double. North Sydney s Rob Aitken reached 8 000 First Grade runs and with 406 wickets as well becomes just the 12th player to achieve the 8 000 runs 400 wickets double. Rob and his father Bob Aitken (789 wickets) are now the only father-and-son combination in the history of First Grade to each take 400 wickets. Sydney s Dominic Thornely (615 and 42 wickets) became the first player to achieve the 600 run 40 wicket double since Fairfield-Liverpool s Anthony Clark in 2007 08 a feat that is becoming more difficult to achieve with the addition of Twenty20 rounds at the expense of two-day and one-day rounds. Daniel Smith made an amazing century for Western Suburbs in a Twenty20 match against Sutherland at Glenn McGrath Oval smashing 114 runs from just 53 balls in his team s total of 4-196. His blistering knock included 10 fours and 8 sixes with his half-century coming from 19 balls and his ton from 47. This was also the highest-ever individual score in a First Grade Twenty20 match. ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 77 SYDNEY GRADE - WOMEN S COMPETITION Bankstown(left) and St George-Sutherland were the top two teams in First Grade. Eight clubs were part of the 2010 11 competition with 27 teams entered across the various grades. This was one less team than the previous season however there were 20 more participants across all grades with 442 women taking the field this season. Club structures were looking stronger than ever. Four clubs fielded a team in each of the four grades with a further three clubs fielding a team in all but one grade inching the competition closer to achieving the goal of having all eight clubs with the full complement of teams. The extremely busy representative calendar put even more pressure on the First Grade ranks in 2010 11 with a large number of players called away from Club duties to represent either the Lend Lease Breakers ACT Meteors or Tasmania Roar. The First Grade and Second Grade competitions comprised seven and eight teams respectively with five in Third Grade and seven in the Brewer Shield competition. A change in the competition format for First and Second Grade and the Brewer Shield saw the creation of both a Limited Overs competition and an overall Premiership comprising Limited Overs and Twenty20 matches with the Finals of the latter played as Twenty20 fixtures. This was the second season that the Player Points System (PPS) applied to the competition with the cap increased to account for Eastern Suburbs exiting the competition. The purpose of the PPS remains to support an even distribution of playing talent throughout the competition and to encourage clubs to focus on junior development. The SCA continued its close relationship with the Sydney Women s Cricket Umpires Association through an Umpiring Working Party comprising representatives of each party.The SWCUA implemented a panel system to assist with appointments and have increased member education and training resulting in better on-field performance. The SWCUA and in particular Kevin McFarlane John Colwell and Gerry Forliano are to be recognised for their continued involvement and planning. The Women s Competition Sub-Committee comprised Jessica Henry (Chair) Claire Jones Gary Koschel and Rob Smith with Christine Byrnes and Denis O Brien joining for the first time in 2010 11. On behalf of all the clubs and players thank you to the members of the Committee for their dedication and continued hard work to ensure the competition ran smoothly. SPIRIT OF CRICKET AWARD The Universities Women s Cricket Club won this award in 2010 11. This Award is judged by officiating umpires who assess each team s adherence to the Spirit of Cricket as set out in the Preamble to the Laws of Cricket. BOB CURTIN MEMORIAL UMPIRES AWARD This award was won by Northern District Third Grade Player Claire Jones who finished 11 points clear of St George-Sutherland s Courtney Green.

Front row (l-r) David Freedman Lisa Sthalekar Neil McDonald Donna Anderson Cheryl Williams David Patterson. July 1 2010 saw the creation of the State Cricket Department a merger between the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues Lend Lease Breakers and High Performance Programs. The mandate was to review establish and implement the strategic direction and operational management of the NSW elite player and coach pathways ensuring a professional and consistent approach to the deployment development and performance management of staff support staff and players. Following Cricket NSW s strategic goal to dominate interstate cricket and develop Australian representative players the staff set about identifying ways of improving efficiencies and creating a one pathway approach across all aspects of planning playing developing and coaching and in turn our players welfare health and well-being. Specialist Coaching was the first area where efficiency was improved with the appointment of Corey Richards as Batting Coach and Matt Nicholson as Bowling Coach. They worked throughout our pathway from the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues and Lend Lease Breakers through to the State Youth squads and Sydney Grade clubs. Our Grade Club Coach Support Program was used to assist with all specialist coaching areas. There was more dialogue between Cricket NSW and Grade Club coaches during the season with Michael Wholohan (Penrith) Murray Creed (University of NSW) and Phil Marks (North Sydney) all taking the opportunity to attend RTA SpeedBlitz Blues training sessions and matches. Gary Crowfoot our U 19 Male Head Coach also worked closely with a number of clubs by running sessions on batting leadership and Twenty20 strategies. The development of pathway management in the areas of Strength and Conditioning and Physiotherapy commenced and is now resourced to meet the needs of our elite player group with common methods and practices. These were established by our Strength and Conditioning Coach Paul Chapman and Physiotherapist Murray Ryan who are also responsible for driving our standards. On the field the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues headed into the Christmas break well placed to win three trophies only to finish second in the Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield and KFC Big Bash and third in the Ryobi One Day Cup. While injuries to our fast bowlers really took its toll on the squad the highlights of the season were the emergence of young players Nic Maddinson Patrick Cummins Sean Abbott Nic Bills and Luke Doran who all debuted in one or more formats as well as the selection of Usman Khawaja in the New Year s Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Patrick Cummins capped off an especially fine first season by being named the Male Rising Star for 2010 11. The leadership of the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues for much of the season fell on the shoulders of Stuart Clark who did a great job guiding the young team around the park with Simon Katich taking charge for the last round of the Shield competition and the Final. The Lend Lease Breakers again showed their dominance by placing first in the WNCL 50 over competition and second in the Twenty20 tournament. Alex Blackwell in her first season as captain showed wonderful leadership and dominated the competition. Some great young talent also debuted including Nicola Carey Hannah Trollip and Kath Koschel and this blend of experience and youth will ensure the Lend Lease Breakers continue to be competition leaders. The one-off Ashes Test against England was a great moment with Sarah Coyte and Alyssa Healy presented their Baggy Green caps joining Alex Blackwell Lisa Sthalekar Ellyse Perry and Leah Poulton as proud Australian Test players. The Gujarat NRE Youth Programs continue to identify both metropolitan and regional cricketers and provide them with wonderful development opportunities. These Programs not only provide a start to players but it is also where coaches begin their path towards the elite level. Our NSW Youth teams experienced a mix of success and disappointment. Poor weather during the U 15 Female and U 19 and U 17 Male National Championships aided by some indifferent form resulted in underachievement. On a brighter note the U 18 Female and Women s Second XI won their competitions in fine style. Looking forward to 2011 12 we have implemented a number of new initiatives which will restore NSW to its position as the leader in all National Youth competitions. For the first time the NSW s Men s and Women s Indigenous Programs were part of the State Cricket Department. This resulted in players having access to the same network of specialist coaches as the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues and Lend Lease Breakers. I am proud to report our teams took out both the men s and women s divisions at the Imparja Cup. Finally I would like to thank the State Cricket Department staff our part time support staff and past players who played a part in developing NSW cricket during the season.

ANNUAL REPORT 2010 2011 85 STATE CRICKET DEPARTMENT TALENT IDENTIFICATION Talent Identification is a crucial part of the Cricket NSW Player Development Pathway with the Gujarat NRE Emerging Blues and Emerging Breakers Programs the cornerstone of this important task. These Programs offer players in metropolitan Sydney and regional areas of NSW access to specialist coaching and structured pre-season training programs aimed at improving their skills. The Programs take a multi-disciplinary approach to player development with Fitness Sport Psychology and Diet amongst the topics addressed with players. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of cricket in a player s life in relation to their responsibilities towards family friends and education. Gujarat NRE Emerging Blues Program The Gurjarat NRE Emerging Blues squads were selected during March and April 2010 from over 500 applicants. The U 13 and U 14 squads were split into North and South regions with 24 players in each squad. The Program consisted of six pre-season training sessions in July and August held at both the Gujarat NRE SCG Indoor Centre and Blacktown Olympic Park followed by inter-squad Twenty20 and 40 over matches. A final squad of 12 from each age group was then selected to play the Illawarra Emerging Blues while many members of the squad also attended the Talented Athlete Program camp. The U 15 and U 16 squads comprised 24 players each with pre-season sessions in July and August consisting of one-on-one small group and team coaching. In October the squads were split into teams for a series of matches played under Sydney Cricket Association conditions against each other and Regional Emerging Blues squads. Gujarat NRE Emerging Breakers Programs The Metropolitan component of the Gujarat NRE Emerging Breakers Program saw net trials in April 2010 for the U 13 U 14 U 15 and U 17 squads. Skills sessions ran for either a six or eight week block during August and September with U 17 players provided with an additional four weeks of the strength and conditioning training. At the end of each program the U 13 and U 14 squads were split into teams. The U 14s were able to complete a Twenty20 match under lights however poor weather prevented the U 13s from doing the same. Instead a tactical session was held for players where they could view footage and discuss different options. The U 15 and U 17 squads played trial matches from which the City teams were selected for matches against Country. Several players went on to represent NSW at the Youth National Championships in December and January. The Regional Emerging Breakers Program targeted six regions of NSW Central North North Coast Western Illawarra Southern Newcastle Central Coast and Riverina. Each squad was made up of up to 24 players aged 13-19 years. Squads completed up to seven pre-season training sessions which were also attended by specialist coaches from Sydney with the aim of preparing for the NSW Country Championships held over the October long weekend. The Basil Sellers Country Boys Coaching Class The Country Boys Coaching Class (CBCC) saw 25 U 16 players from regional areas of the State attend an intensive training camp at Blacktown Olympic Park including specialist coaching video assessment Strength and Conditioning and 50-over practice matches against representative teams from the AW Green Shield. At the end of the camp players were provided with feedback and advice on areas of their games that could be improved over the off-season. The players selected to attend the 2010 11 CBCC were Central Coast Jake Sculina Michael Bell Jordan O Donnell Blake Ryan James Smith James Willians Central North Harrison Kelly Leo Styne Max Houlahan James Tsarakis Illawarra Kyle Brockley Corbin Brown Tyler Edwards Newcastle Jake Moore Cameron Roxby Daniel Arms Jacob Montgormery North Coast Nick DeGuisti Lian Johnstone Riverina Tom West Kane Bennett Southern Tom Skelly Max Moran Western Hayden Sealy Michael Waldren Finally our sincere thanks to Mr Basil Sellers for his continued support of the CBCC. Talented Athlete Program Two Talent Athlete Program (TAP) Camps were held for male players in 2010 11 utilising facilities at Blacktown Olympic Park and the Sydney Academy of Sport. The first of the camps targeted 36 U 17 and U 19 players from regional areas of the NSW while the second camp catered for 36 players from the U 13 City Emerging Blues squads. All of the players who attended the two camps took part in specialist skills coaching video assessment fitness testing and team building activities. Interactive lectures were held covering topics such as education and its importance for young athletes nutrition and psychology. The Sydney Academy of Sport also provided a synthetic wicket to expose the U 13 players to more game based training. There were no TAP Camps held for female players in 2010 11. Instead the U 15 and U 18 NSW teams participated in a week-long training camp as part of the build up to their respective National Championships. 86 CRICKET NEW SOUTH WALES ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The State Cricket Department would like to thank the following people for their contributions to the success of the 2010 11 season.

Marie Cornish brings a strong understanding of women s cricket in regional NSW as well as her experience as a past Australian player. Robert Smith has a strong administrative background in women s cricket with a thorough understanding of the Sydney Cricket Association (SCA) Women s Competition through his roles as Bankstown Sports Club President and a member of the SCA Women s Competition Sub-Committee. Thank you to Anne Neems for her participation on the Committee prior to this season. Her country voice provided valuable insight into women s cricket issues in regional NSW. In 2010 the NSW Cricket Board fully endorsed the recommendations stemming from a comprehensive review of Women s Cricket in NSW. One recommendation actioned during 2010 11 was the implementation of a Female Cricket Management Group comprising Cricket NSW staff together with the Chair of the Women s Cricket Committee Kaye Loder. This monthly meeting has effectively implemented successful initiatives in the women s game working independently but complementary to the Women s Committee which continues to advise the NSW Cricket Board. Also on the back of the NSW Women s Cricket Review Cricket NSW appointed two new staff members to provide additional support. Those roles have been ably filled by Kate Evans (Cricket Operations OfficerFemale Cricket) and Jane Livesey (Female Participation Manager). On the field NSW continued to dominate selection in the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars team with eight players from the Lend Lease Breakers representing Australia this season Alex Blackwell (captain) Sarah Coyte Alyssa Healy Erin Osborne Sharon Millanta Ellyse Perry Leah Poulton and Lisa Sthalekar. 2010 11 was a successful one for the promotion of the women s game in Australia with more than 15 hours of live coverage more than ever before. These were all Twenty20 matches which highlights the importance of the format with respect to the promotional opportunities it presents to women s cricket in Australia. The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars found success where their male counterparts could not by winning the Ashes over England at Bankstown Oval in late January. The media had a field day comparing the success of the women to the men s woes The result was increased coverage of the women s Test on television and in the print media. Day Two of the Test saw a number of former NSW players and administrators share lunch and memories. It was a fantastic effort by the Waratah Club to reunite their members to commemorate and share the history of women s cricket in NSW as well as providing support to current players. The Lend Lease Breakers were again successful in winning the WNCL 50 over Final making it a record equalling six consecutive titles. The girls however were not successful in bringing home the Twenty20 trophy a title won by Victoria in a thrilling finish. 2010 11 saw Cricket Australia implement a format change in the WNCL with the ratio of Twenty20 to 50 over matches changed to 2 1. This dominance of Twenty20 cricket was also reflected in the SCA Women s Competition with the First Grade Second Grade and U 18 competitions including a higher proportion of Twenty20 matches with the format also used to decide each Premiership. At lower representative levels NSW were again successful in winning the Women s Cricket Australia Cup a State Second XI competition as well as the U 18 Female National Championship. NSW also performed well in the U 15 Female National Championships in Sydney finishing second in a tournament that was heavily affected by rain. The Country Cricket Committee of Management has approved changes for 2011 12 which will give increased opportunities for representational play and foster participation to develop the younger players in our country zones. Local modified competitions were established in regional areas which gave a much needed boost to participation. The NSW Women s Committee is kept up to date with reports from the various Cricket NSW departments relevant to women s cricket. Based on these as well as the consideration of the Female Management Group the NSW Women s Cricket Committee has identified a need for a Women s Cricket Forum. This Forum will facilitate communication between the various women s cricket stakeholders whose contributions will feed into a Women s Cricket Strategy specific to NSW for the coming seasons. The Forum will be held in August 2011 with the aim of formulating a more concise blueprint for what is needed to further develop women s cricket in NSW for the seasons to come. The NSW Cricket Board Chairman Dr Harry Harinath OAM and Chief Executive David Gilbert are again acknowledged and thanked for backing and encouraging the development of the women s game. Their support allows NSW to continue to lead the way for women and girls in Australian cricket.

Front Row (l-r) Janine Stainer Christina Matthews Renai Manning Theresa Purtell Lauren Boyle It is a time of change for the game across Australia. 2010 11 saw the final domestic Twenty20 competition to feature teams from each State. From next season domestic Twenty20 cricket will be known as the KFC T20 Big Bash League and will be played by eight city based teams with new names colours and logos. This change provides us with an opportunity to examine our business and move in different directions to ensure that cricket remains viable. During the 2010 11 season the Commercial Operations and Communication Department took on several new exciting and diverse challenges that will provide a platform for the future. CORPORATE HOSPITALITy The signing of a new five year hire agreements with the SCG Trust and ANZ Stadium provided Cricket NSW with the opportunity to establish its own Corporate Hospitality Program for the first time developing a joint venture with SEL Insite to establish top class Programs for International cricket. In partnership with our social media consultant Sports Geek we have developed an Online Strategy that enables us to engage with cricket fans through new and exciting initiatives. In the 12 months since its implementation we have almost doubled our website traffic and attracted over 10 000 Facebook fans and 3 400 Twitter followers. This provides an excellent base from which to engage with fans in the coming seasons. SPONSORSHIP Once again we have been well supported by our loyal sponsors and suppliers. During the latter part of the 2010 11 season the RTA agreed to a new two year contract that will take the sponsorship through to the end of the 2012 13 season. The partnership with the RTA is one of the longest running domestic cricket partnerships in history and we look forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary with them during the 2011 12 season. During the season we welcomed Weet-Bix as the new sponsor of the junior community Twenty20 Cup formerly known as the Michael Clarke Twenty20 Cup. Former Australian and NSW captain Mark Taylor checks out his spot in the Mark Taylor Club. A key part of this exciting venture has been the establishment of the Mark Taylor Club the official membership of Cricket NSW which offers members prime seating and access to the exclusive Steve Waugh Room during all International matches. Our thanks go to Mark for his support of what will develop into a top class membership program. FACILITIES MANAGEMENT The management of both the Indoor Practice Centre at Blacktown Olympic Park and the Gujarat NRE SCG Indoor Centre moved into the Commercial Operations Department to ensure consistency of delivery of the facilities under Cricket NSW s control. There are exciting times ahead for these outstanding complexes and we look forward to building on the work done to date. ONLINE Our move into the social media space has proved to be an enormous success with strong growth in our online presence demonstrated across our website Facebook and Twitter. This competition is now known as the Weet-Bix Cup and it continues to grow each year and we thank Weet-Bix for their support. We also welcomed Lend Lease as a major sponsor of the NSW Breakers. Lend Lease are committed to providing a balanced lifestyle for their employees and their assistance in providing career guidance and opportunities for the players is greatly appreciated. EVENTS Across the season the Department is responsible for the presentation of all senior men s and women s representative matches as well the many and varied non-match functions that are required to service sponsors media and stakeholders. In 2010 11 these included the Annual Cricket NSW Golf Day and Season Launch Dressing Room lunches for media and sponsors and of course the pinnacle of our event season the Steve Waugh Medal Dinner. I would like to thank all the staff for the excellent job they do in delivering these many events.

David Warner fronted the 2010 11 Recruitment Campaign The changing recreational landscape has provided so much choice for increasingly demanding parents and participants. To some degree a sport is a product that is sampled. The first experience must be great and cricket can no longer claim to be the traditional summer sport. Consequently Game Development is committed to propelling cricket into a crowded sports landscape. Our aim is to continue to position cricket as a contemporary fast action packed sport that ensures greater participation levels than ever before. Players can then progress to traditional formats if they so desire or be retained in the game at a recreational level. Amongst the initiatives deployed in 2010 11 were the Beach Cricket Gala Days and the Heroes were Kids Once recruitment campaign with advertisements gracing highway billboards buses and newspapers. All recruitment messages emphasised our new products in2CRICKET and Twenty20. MILO IN2CRICKET THE PERFECT FIRST TASTE OF CRICKET Just over 10 000 girls and boys aged between 5-10 years enrolled in 307 MILO in2CRICKET Centres across NSW in 2010 11. The minimum entry price of 55 per child entitled each to a bat backpack drink bottle and ball. On average 20 of the 55 remained at the host club. One of the initiatives developed by MILO Cricket Australia and Cricket NSW in2CRICKET Manager Nick Guinane was the Mega Visit to primary schools which aimed at recruiting participants for local MILO in2CRICKET Centres. Inflatable cricket equipment and hyperactive games were used to sell cricket as pure fun.

For those Associations choosing not to do so their club teams can chase the Twenty20 experience by individually entering the Weet-Bix Cup with preliminary rounds played in lieu of mid-week training. Held in the four regions of Metropolitan Sydney a total of 105 teams participated across U 12 U 14 and U 16 age groups culminating in finals on the Sydney Cricket Ground in early March. In each of the 220 Weet-Bix Cup games played maximum participation was assured thanks to a modified rule whereby the first five batters in a team cannot bowl until their five teammates have bowled and viceversa thereby ensuring that every child has at least performed in their preferred discipline including the wicketkeeper. SCHOOL CRICKET The School Visit Program continued in high demand with 120 000 show bags hand delivered to primary school children across the State either at one of our promotional visits or the increasingly popular School Heroes Program. The School Heroes Program involved five visits per class with sessions including batting bowling fielding and modified games. The Program is self-funding with the cost of 5 per child per session including a new cricket bat for each participant. As part of the School Visit Program all schools are encouraged to enter the MILO in2CRICKET Cup a Super 8 s championship help during Term Four. To enter a boys team the school must enter a girls team. VOLUNTEERS RECOGNITION Cricket NSW have offered numerous opportunities over the years to thank our volunteers. In 2010 11 we confirmed that the most popular events are the KFC Big Bash matches at ANZ Stadium and Day Four of the SCG Test Match. Free tickets were again offered to registered volunteers to one or the other and demand again exceeded supply. A catered function at ANZ Stadium for a KFC Big Bash match coincided with the announcement of the Regional and the State Volunteers of the Year. Stephen O Keefe and Alyssa Healy were the faces of the School Heroes Program.

The ages of players range from U 7 years to seniors with players able to participate irrespective of their varying ability. We endeavour to provide Associations with assistance in a number of areas including guidance on constitutional matters judiciary preparation of competition draws Local Government issues succession planning and upgrading of infrastructure. Our Regional Forum Program was very successful and we gained much information regarding the problems which Associations and clubs face on a daily basis. Not surprisingly ground problems mainly the standard cost and availability were high on the list. However the issue which concerns all of us is the reducing number of volunteers ready and able to put in the time necessary to run the various activities of our sport. We retained the position of the approval authority for submissions in respect of the Loans and Grants Scheme. Due to financial constraints we have not been able to pursue the Loans and Grants allocations as we would have liked but we are hopeful this may be able to resume next season to ensure infrastructure is of the highest standard. Our Inter-Association Shield program continues to be well supported by our Associations.These competitions attract good quality players many of whom go on to provide the core of the Emerging Blues and Emerging Breakers squads. We also conducted Twenty20 Carnival in the school holidays for U 13 players the only qualification being that the players must not have played in the Shield competition.The Carnival was conducted with the assistance of Blacktown CDCA and their Coaching Director John Watterson who we thank. We are hopeful of attracting additional entries in the coming season. Our Girls Carnival played for a week during the January holidays continues to attract teams and the support of parents. The Carnival is played at The Eric Mobbs complex at Castle Hill where we can provide four adjacent grounds which adds to the atmosphere. The U 14 City-Country Challenge was played at the Sydney Cricket Ground as a Twenty20 match between South Eastern JCA the Harold Moore Shield Premiers and Central North Zone who won the Kookaburra Cup. The City team was successful this season. Playing on the Sydney Cricket Ground was a big occasion for all players and we thank NSW Country Cricket Association for their organisation.

The Sydney Cricket Association Committee of Management for their support. All Local Government Authorities for their assistance and support. Local government authorities are almost the sole providers of facilities vital for cricket s longevity and their ongoing support cannot be underestimated. The Kingsgrove Sports Centre in particular Harry Solomons for his continued and most generous support of junior cricket in NSW. The donations of gift vouchers to the Player of the Year in junior Shield competitions was appreciated by all. The support provided to various Associations does not go unnoticed. Kookaburra Sport in particular Noel Moig for providing balls and sponsorship to the Inter-Association competitions and their great financial assistance to local competitions. All Vice Presidents and Life Members for their dedication help and support. The Game Development Department for their continued involvement with Associations and administration of various cricket programs for the benefit of our players.

When watching the Fifth Ashes Test at the SCG it was pleasing to note at one point three of the on-side fielders were Steve Smith Philip Hughes and Usman Khawaja all of whom had recently graduated from the NSW schoolboy ranks In the recent Women s One Day series verses England five players in the Australian team Ellyse Perry Alyssa Healy Erin Osborne Sarah Coyte and Meg Lanning (now representing Victoria) were all products of the NSW PSSA teams. In the last round of the Sheffield Shield the RTA SpeedBlitz Blues two opening bowlers Patrick Cummins (St Paul s Grammar School Penrith) and Nicholas Bills (The King s School Parramatta) had both played in the NSW Schoolboy s Carnival in 2010. Both students were from the Independent Schools system often criticised for not producing First Class cricketers. Schools cricket can rightly claim to be a nursery for young cricketers and must be given credit for developing and nurturing these players. If the research is to be believed then Schools will need to continue this important role. The work of volunteers is fundamental to any not for profit organisation and sadly we have lost two of our very best in Don Wiburd and Garth Lukins over the past seven months. Don passed away in November 2010 after more than 50 years of service to young people and cricket while Garth passed away in late May 2011 once again having served cricket at both Club and School s level for more than 50 years. They will be sorely missed. NSW SCHOOLBOy S CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK The 2011 NSW Schoolboy s Championships was played in Western Sydney with many of the games played at venues which had multiple grounds. Whilst some time was missed due to poor weather the reduction of overs did not detract from the number of runs scored throughout the week. Several centuries were scored with Player of the Championship Nick Bertus scoring two one of those coming in a Twenty20 match. In an unusual week where the CHS teams were not as dominant as they traditionally are the majority of the games were very closely contested. NSW Schoolboys Champions GPS On the final day all three games were played at the King s School using the Twenty20 format. Each match involved at least one team who were in contention to win the Championship which made for a wonderfully exciting morning of cricket. GPS eventually took out the title with victory over CHS-1. As always we would acknowledge the contributions of the many who make this week of cricket a highlight of the cricket calendar. Thanks to the Campbelltown-Camden Hawkesbury and Blacktown Grade clubs and Cricket NSW for providing grounds. Thanks also to the King s School for providing the grounds and function venue on the final day. To each of the ground staff involved we acknowledge their tireless work in providing quality wickets and grounds for our players. Our thanks as always go to the umpires schools coaches and managers for their support and expertise and finally our thanks to Mr Tim Murray who has done an outstanding job as Tournament Referee for a number of years.

We extend our thanks to the following sponsors Cricket NSW Macquarie Bank Carbine Club of NSW Lord s Taverner s NSW TRIBUTES Donald (Don) Amos Wiburd OAM (1929 2010) Cricket has lost one of its outstanding servants. Don Wiburd was 81 years young and a legend to many for the amazing contribution he made through more than 50 years of service both in schools and in sport. Don served youth cricket in the Bathurst region for more than 50 years. He was Chairman of the Country Schools Cricket Association until his passing and founder of that school group in 1991. Don Wiburd It is due to Don s vision and drive that all Country schoolboy cricketers have had the opportunity to play at the highest level they are capable of. He was also Convenor of the Douglas Shield which is a State-wide Country Schools Knock Out competition which he instigated in 1991. Prior to 1991 Don was the Secretary of the Western Associated Schools from 1962 to 1976 and again from 1978 to 1991. As Secretary of this group he was responsible for organising sports such as cricket rugby and athletics. He also coached junior cricket teams at Scots College (1954 to 1976) St Stanislaus College (1977 to 1990) and All Saints College (1991 to 1996). In 2009 the NSW Schoolboys Championship Lord s Taverner s Week was held in Bathurst to both honour him and celebrate his 80th birthday. He will be remember for his calm humble approach to life and his untiring work in service to the young particularly in cricket and rugby. Garth Lukins (1929 2011) One of the great contributors to NSW Schools Cricket Garth Lukins was a well-known servant of our game. As one NSW Schools Association committee member said Men like Garth (and Don Wiburd) were of such genuine integrity and selfless servants to others that one could not help but be influenced by them. Garth s commitment to doing things properly and ethically will always stay with me. Garth was a foundation member of the NSW Schoolboy s Cricket Association and served for more than 40 years on the Management Committee in many roles including Honorary Secretary for a total of 17 years (three separate terms) Assistant Secretary for a total of six years (two separate terms) Schools Delegate to NSWCA for 13 years Delegate to NSW Youth Committee Manager to NSW Schoolboys team Delegate to NSW Australian Schools Cricket Council Championship Referee NSW Schoolboy s Championship Organising Committee of Australian U 19 Championship Organising Committee of Kookaburra Shield We would especially like to thank the Macquarie Bank for their six years of generous support. We also recognise the many volunteers who assist in organising and running our events. The generosity of so many which ranges from time release of staff from schools to the grounds staff at the quality venues we are privileged to use provides the base we build on to enable us to offer quality cricket for our students. Finally I would like to thank our hard working committee who do so much at their Group levels and or in helping organise and conduct our Association s events. In addition Garth was an active member of the Mosman Grade Cricket Club and served on the Management Committee for 12 years. Looking through the minutes of the NSW Schools Cricket Association I noticed an apology for Garth not attending a committee meeting in June 1987. It noted that this was the first meeting Garth had missed in 15 years summing up the man so many of us in cricket owe much to for he was a mentor who coached us in the best practice of being a volunteer. He has left a legacy that we can only hope to pass on to others. Graeme Kightley Honorary Secretary 104 CRICKET NEW SOUTH WALES THE BRADMAN F OUNDATION Residential camp coaches and keen participants surround the Bradman statue in the grounds of the Museum. To say the 2010 11 season has been busy would be an understatement The past year is undoubtedly another significant period in the Foundation s history. The major focus for the Foundation has been the building works and opening of The International Cricket Hall of Fame (The ICHOF) which includes immersive and interactive displays that track and explain the game s development across all eras. With the announcement of Ricky Ponting as our Global Ambassador we kicked things off with a luncheon featuring Ricky being interviewed in the shell of the building in May 2010. A few months later with workmen stepping up to meet the impending deadline our first international Bradman Honouree Sunil Gavaskar visited the construction site. Sunil was delighted to inspect first hand his silhouette on the Greats of the Game wall and was one of the first to see the installation of our spectacular monolithic display units. The combined co-operative effort positive attitude and goodwill of the entire trade workforce ensured that the doors opened on time.The ribbon was cut by the Federal Minister for Tourism Martin Ferguson in recognition of the Federal Government grant that underpinned the construction. Also attending the opening was the then NSW Sports Minister Kevin Greene who announced that the State Government would fund five new galleries and assist with the upgrading of the entire cricket facility. We welcomed many special guests at our official opening among them the West Indian U 16 schoolboy cricket team who trained alongside the Australian U 16 team on the Oval later that afternoon. To our benefit and deep gratitude we received outstanding media coverage of the opening resulting in record levels of visitation since November 2010. News of The ICHOF is spreading to foreign shores with well-known cricket journalist and consultant to the Bradman Foundation Mike Coward travelling on our behalf to England and Barbados. Mike is interviewing past players and celebrities who have a passion for the game for eventual display in The ICHOF. The NSW Government also provided a 40 000 grant under the NSW Climate Change Fund Public Facilities Program Community Savers scheme. The grant enabled the purchase and installation of a 72 000 litre water storage tank to reuse rainwater from the building s roof for the amenities and to irrigate the adjoining community park. While the sun shined on The ICHOF not so the wicket with heavy and persistent rain over the entire season significantly reducing scheduled matches. We did however have a break in the clouds for the inaugural Rotary Dream Day Cricket which is a pilot program for children with disabilities. The day s activities were well coordinated and many seasoned Rotarians gushed with pride whilst watching 230 participants smile and laugh all day. Cricket NSW and Cricket Australia provided fantastic support on the day including the provision of MILO in2Cricket backpacks for each participant. The 2010 Bradman Gala Dinner held at the Gujarat NRE SCG Indoor Centre was a stunning success. A record numbers of attendees saw our first International Honouree Sunil Gavaskar receive his citation from Richie Benaud along with Adam Gilchrist. Special guest Barry Humphries provided world class entertainment and once again the bar was raised for what is becoming one of Australia s most anticipated sporting dinners. On behalf of the Foundation I extend a deep thank you to all players who have given freely of their time to attend these interviews including greats Frank Tyson Allan Border Sir Ian Botham Andrew Strauss and Sachin Tendulkar. The selection of a Bradman Scholar was again a tough choice with nominations from many outstanding young players. However one stood out Andrew Lowe originally from Laurieton on the NSW North Coast and currently playing First Grade for the Northern District Cricket Club. Andrew s scholarship will support his studies in his Bachelor of Business in Sports Management at the University of Technology. Throughout the year we established several significant partnerships. Our fund raising partnership with School Sports Australia s International Cricket Program aligns with Sir Donald s vision that the Foundation invests in youth cricket and supports many aspects of the Foundation s charter. Bradman Oval will become the home ground for School Sports international matches with all touring international school teams to be showcased on the iconic ground. To celebrate this partnership and commence the fund raising process to send the Australian Schools team to the West Indies in November 2011 members of the public can purchase a Crest on a Picket at Bradman Oval from our website Bradman.com.au The vision and support of our Chairman Michael Ball and the Board of Directors has been outstanding and we welcomed two new Directors ABC Chairman Maurice Newman AC and John McCarthy former Australian High Commissioner to India. 2011 12 is already shaping up to be as busy as the previous year with a new Bradman Gallery and immersive World Game exhibit currently being designed for opening in November 2011. Photographer Phillip Brown Cricket Australia and the International Cricket Council have assisted our curatorial staff to gather images objects and World Cup match sound files for the displays. In addition to expanding the exhibits we are seeking advice and assistance to develop a Master Plan for upgrading the oval practice nets pavilion and coaching clinics to create a Youth Cricket Academy. It will be a unique facility that combines on-field programs with the educational content such as the science of cricket player comparisons and interpretations of playing conditions around the world.
