Big hitters and best bowlers from T20 cricket

SPORTS editor Mitchell Craig picks his team of the year from the Far North Coast LJ Hooker League Twenty20 competition.

Abe Crawford, Tintenbar-East Ballina

The top run-scorer in the competition with 542 runs and his was they key wicket when he was dismissed for 40 in the semi-final loss against Cudgen.

Caleb Ziebell, Cudgen

Rarely misses out on the chance to score runs and a determined half century in the semi-final was backed up by a crucial 40 in the final.

Justin Moore,

Ballina Bears

Scored 360 runs this season and Bears found it tough to keep the scoreboard ticking over in it's semi-final after his early dismissal.

Ashley Simes,

Marist Brothers

Big hitter that is perfectly suited to the shorter format of the game and was a shining light in the competition round for Brothers.

Ben Carruthers,

Ballina Bears

A linchpin in the Bears side and has a habit of batting out the overs on his home wicket at Ballina.

Connor Ziebell, Cudgen

Plenty of runs in key moments for Cudgen and battled through some niggling injuries to help them to the premiership win on Sunday night.

Adam Rogers, Pottsville

Most consistent wicket keeper in the competition and got Pottsville on the front foot with his run-scoring ability from opening bat.

Ryan McLoy, Pottsville

Playing again after injury saw miss the first half of the season and he is still one of the best all-rounders in the competition.

Terry Wilson, Cudgen

Top wicket taker in the Twenty20 competition with 16 to his name and looks to be enjoying his cricket this season without the added pressure of captaincy.

Nathan Wilson, Pottsville

Back in the fold this season after recovering from a knee injury and led the way in the semi-final top scoring with 24 not out and took three wickets.

James Julius, Cudgen

Missed some of the twenty20 rounds through injury but added the consistency Cudgen needed on their way to the finals in the later weeks.
