Two students have been selected for the Sydney Thunder Academy side to play the Lahore Qalanders today at 4:00pm at Pratten Park.
Damien Mortimer, averaging 91.7 this season, has been selected to make his debut for the Sydney Thunder Academy. Damien started his season with a brilliant hundred against Hawkesbury and followed that up with a powerful 64 against Blacktown in round two of the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup. Damien showed his class once again in round 5 against Easts with a rapid fire 61.
Damien will be joined by Sydney University team mate Tom Rogers. Tom Rogers, fresh from his Futures League game last week, will look to continue pressing his claims for higher honours. In Round 1 of the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup, Tom tore through Penrith taking 3-12 off his four overs. He also impressed in the first two Thunder Academy games earlier in November bowling with great pace and bounce.
Good luck to both our boys today.
