One of three Victorian players in the Australian team, Andrew dominated with the bat and performed well with the ball. He also took the first wicket of the series.

Andy's shown at far right training in India with one of his coaches.


The tournament was played under a Twenty/20 format, with all batsmen restricted to four overs per innings and bowlers to two overs. Andy's three games netted his 51 runs for once out, and 1/37 off six overs.

In one cracking game, Andy and his partner blasted 48 runs from their four overs, without losing a wicket.

Australia lost its first match to Pakistan. Pakiston made 6/157, with Andrew taking 1/10 - including the first wicket of the tournament.

In reply Australia made 13/120, with Andy scoring 13no.

In Game 2, Australia 8/233 defeated  West Indies 11/156. Andrew's telling contribution was 23no with the bat and 0/20 with the ball.

Our third game saw Australia 15/159 losing out to India 6/114. Andy made 15 and was once out - run out - and returned bowling figures of 0/7.

Andrew's overall tournament figures were 51 runs for once out, and 1/37.

Parents David and Chris went to India for the tournament.

Andy proudly wore his Moonee Valley cap while on tour, so our Mighty Valleys emblem was seen in India.
