Club Cricket SA Player of the Week: James Crowson

James Crowson

Western Province Cricket Club’s James Crowson is the opening Club Cricket SA Player of the Week for the 2016-17 season.

Saturday, 8 October saw Crowson strike a measured 88 not out from just 51 deliveries against the University of the Western Cape Cricket Club.

His entertaining innings featured seven sixes and five fours – and contributed heavily to the hosts’ five-wicket victory in the key Ama20 Competition premier league fixture.

The talented right-hander’s partnerships with middle-order batsmen Jason Shield and Ryan Cook proved particularly significant, after the early departure of quartet Derek Mitchell, Kyle Schreuder, Tianne Mostert and Michael Rippon.
