Awesome foursome get picked for Sydney Sixers Academy Squad

Although the Waratahs ended the T20 season in disappointing fashion, some great news has arisen with the Waratahs being very well represented in the Sydney Sixers.

Adam Crosthwaite, Jay Lenton, Nic Bills (pictured above) and Mickey Edwards have all been chosen to represent the Sixers in the upcoming Triforce Sports Super T20 League. The players will be jostling it out to see who is able to take one of the last supplementary positions in the Sixers squad for the upcoming BBL04 season.

13 players have been picked in the squad, which includes many former 1st class players. They are part of the new tournament which features the Sydney Sixers and the Sydney Thunder both entering an Academy team featuring cricketers from the newly aligned Sydney T20 tournament. The other 2 teams in the competition will be filled by the Darren Lehman Academy and the Triforce Australia, both of which will be filled with experienced first graders and former BBL and first class players.

It’s a fantastic achievement for all 4 players. Crosthwaite showed during the Kingsgrove Cup T20 series that he still has what it takes to play at the highest level. We here at the Waratahs certainly know that so it is great to see him get an opportunity after scoring 230 runs at 46 from his 5 matches. Lenton is a former NSW Rookie contract holder who also showed his class with both bat and gloves, and this is a great step for Jay to get back into the first class set-up.

Bills has been a revelation for the Tahs so far in 2014/15, providing the class and experience needed in heading up our bowling attack, while the class of Mickey Edwards is there for all to see. He is bowling some serious wheels at the moment and at 7 foot he’s is always a handful.

Big shout out to Cricket NSW and the 2 BBL teams in putting this together. It is very important that cricket in NSW set’s up established pathways for both young stars coming through and experienced stars of the Sydney Grade scene to get to that next level in both the BBL and First Class Cricket. This initiative helps in creating exactly that.
