Joe Kershaw continued his outstanding start to the Futures League season by grabbing five wickets for ACT/NSW Country against South Australia in Adelaide today.
ACT/Country was defending a modest first innings of 198, but Kershaw kept his side in the game by removing SA captain Jake Winter and former UNSW Bee, Ben Wakim, in a hostile opening spell. He then ran through the lower order, dismissing Daniel Drew, Nick Winter and Luke Robins to finish with the excellent figures of 5-79, holding South Australia to a lead of only 105.
Kershaw has been in outstanding form this season, after missing most of 2016-17 with injuries. He has now taken nine wickets in his first two Futures League appearances.
A short time ago, ACT/Country had reached 43 without loss in its second innings.
