Club Cricket SA Player of the Week: Julian Fortuin

March 2016’s opening Club Cricket SA Player of the Week award goes to Macassar Cricket Club’s Julian Fortuin.

Fortuin clinched remarkable bowling figures in a key Western Province Cricket Association first division D fixture against Gugulethu Cricket Club.

The talented right-arm seamer’s first-innings haul of nine for 49 in 19 overs included a near unprecedented two hat-tricks, while four for 41 in the second completed telling match figures of 13 or 90 in 36 overs.

“He bowled some beautiful cutters on a pitch that was playing pretty well. Seeing the seem movement he got, I was very impressed,” Fortuin’s team-mate, Quinton Bowman, told Club Cricket SA.

“It all started when Julian broke a very big partnership by Gugulethu Cricket Club. He took the first hat-trick in his last over of the first day and took the second hat-trick with his first over of the second day. He bowled three dot balls between the two hat-tricks.

“He has been picking up five-fors and six-fors quite regularly this season, but this haul is his biggest.”

Fortuin’s feat spearheaded a comfortable 82-run triumph for the hosts.
