ANOTHER consistent display with the bat has seen Latrobe’s Callan Morse rewarded with his third-consecutive Black Cap at the National Indigenous Cricket Championships.

Morse was the only Tasmanian representative in the team of the tournament, which wrapped up on Monday, after scoring 168 runs (fifth highest) at an average of 28.00, with a top score of 55 against Northern Territory.

There was also reward for Tayla Wigg at the event, with the Burnie wicketkeeper selected in an initial 20-member National Indigenous women’s squad, which will tour India later this year once finalised.

Wigg, along with fellow Burnie teammate Cara Watkins, played in an invitational Queensland side throughout the tournament.

While satisfied with the personal accolade, Morse said he would happily swap them for team success, with Tasmania finishing out of the finals courtesy of two wins and four losses.

“It’s humbling and nice to get a personal accolade, but I’d love to be able to trade them in for some wins,” he said.

“I come up here expecting to win every game I play and contribute to the team. Unfortunately it didn’t work out the best it could.”

The team suffered from a lack of runs throughout the tournament, and lost several games with small totals.

“Our bowling was the second strongest up here, but it meant we were probably a little bit light on with the bat and lacked that power-hitter that a lot of opposition teams have got.

“But they were definitely a good bunch of guys with lots of potential and I imagine they’ll put their hands up to come back.”

NSW took out the women’s championship and were chasing the double in the men’s final against Queensland last night.
