Sydney University's Ryan McElduff has contributed strongly to NSW Metro's Round 3 annihilation of Western Australia yesterday, as well as today's probable victory over Northern Territory.

On Thursday, McElduff faced only 8 balls but hit 9 not out in the final push for a huge score, NSW Metro posting 6-316, and was virtually unplayable in claiming 5-29 from his 8 overs including 3 maidens. NSW Metro eventually bowling WA out for just 96 runs inside just 23 overs.

NSW Metro had previously claimed a 7-wicket win inside 15 overs against the CA XI on Monday, together with another 7 wicket win inside 35 overs against ACT/NSW Country on Tuesday.

NSW Metro leads Pool A with a mammoth 17 points, including two double bonus point wins (CA XI and WA) and a single bonus point (ACT/NSW Country). Queensland lead Pool B with 12 points (3 wins).

In today's action against Northern Territory, McElduff 2nd top-scored with 33 runs in NSW Metro's 9-210, and is yet to bowl with NT currently 7-62 in reply., another bonus point looming.

NSW Metro complete their preliminary round matches on Sunday against Victoria Country before heading into the finals next week with plenty of confidence.
