Sydney University opening bowler Joe Kershaw took his first wickets in Futures League cricket this afternoon, striking twice for AT/Country against Western Australia in Perth.

On a flat pitch at Richardson Park, and in oppressively hot conditions, WA built an imposing first innings of six for 416, with opener Will Bosisto reaching 200.  But Kershaw maintained his pace and accuracy impressively, claiming 2-62 from 23 overs, emerging as the most successful, and economical, of the ACT/NSW Country attack.  He took his first wicket when he had Clinton Hinchliffe caught by Jay Lenton, and he removed Tim David shortly afterwards.

A short time ago, ACT/NSW Country had reached 2 for 107 in its reply.
