An Albany and Districts Cricket Association quartet have shone at the WACA Under-15 State Talent Carnival in Perth this week, enhancing their prospects of selection in the State under-15s squad. Cameron Walsh, Jed Kowald, Teague Valli and Devon Jefferis were all part of the WA Country side that joined five metro teams at the two-day carnival at Lilac Hill. The quartet were all impressive as they helped their WA Black team, also comprising of players from the South West and North West, win both 50-over matches. All-rounder Valli played a superb innings on Monday to guide his side to a match-winning score against WA Blue. Valli came in at No.6 and produced a run-a-ball 87 as he shared in an outstanding 118-run partnership with teammate Jefferis. Morgan Baxter made 77 earlier and when he was run out WA Black were 5-127 in the 32nd over. Jefferis and Valli set about ensuring their side passed 200, Valli crunching seven fours and one six in his terrific unbeaten innings, while Jefferis provided great support with 38 not out from 57 balls. WA Black reached 5-245 from their 50 overs on the back of the big partnership from the Albany and Districts pair. Wyatt Wilson made an early breakthrough for WA Black with the ball, then Walsh struck twice to leave the chase in tatters. Walsh trapped Zed Hollick in front for 12 and then caught and bowled Isaac Diamanti (3) to have WA Blue in trouble at 3-22. Josh Nathan top scored with 51 but he was one of three wickets claimed by spinner Kowald as WA Blue were bowled out for 202 in reply. Kowald was impressive on his way to 3-34 from eight overs while Walsh finished with 2-26 from six overs. Valli bowled five overs for 16 runs. On Tuesday WA Black batted first against WA Orange and they again surpassed 200 thanks to strong contributions from two Albany and Districts players. Keagan Lynch led the way for WA Black with 78 from 112, but Jefferis played a vital innings at the end with 49 not out from 93 balls and shared in a big eighth wicket stand with Kowald. Kowald was run out in the last over for 29 from only 24 balls as he and Jefferis put on 48 runs in quick time to help WA Black reach 8-228. Valli batted at No.3 and was run out for six. Walsh got the first breakthrough in the WA Orange innings and then Kowald chipped in with two wickets to help secure victory. WA Orange managed 136 in reply with Kowald snaring 2-32 from eight overs and Walsh returned 1-17 from four while Valli had figures of 0-9 from his four over spell.
