Bowls newcomer keeps team alive

AUSTRALIAN team newcomer Aron Sherriff played the biggest game of his short international career to square the World Team Cup semi-final against the Canadian invitational line-up at 1-1 at Tweed yesterday. Under enormous pressure after Australia lost the opening pairs rubber, the 21-year-old out-gunned Hriendra Bhartu to keep Australia's World Team Cup dream alive. Sherriff, making his international debut, outclassed the previously undefeated Bhartu, winning in straight sets 11-3, 8-8 at Tweed Heads Bowls Club. Sherriff showed plenty of character to fight back from a 5-8 deficit with two ends to play in the second set. "It was a superb performance by Aron," said Australian coach Cameron Curtis. "He has the temperament and tenacity of someone who has played international bowls for 10 years." Sherriff admitted to feeling a few nerves but said they quickly settled.
