16 Wickets in five games
Sunshine Coast Scorchers medium pacer, Jared Jackson has become the first bowler in the six year history of the Bulls Masters Youth Cup to claim the Matt Hayden Medal for player of the tournament.
The right arm bowler started the Youth Cup in breath-taking form, taking back to back “five-fors” to help his team to convincing victories. Jackson took 5/13 against Darling Downs in the opening T20 and then 5/29 from nine overs against the Monsoons. Jackson continued to pick up wickets in every game and was very economical.
His four wickets in the final group game against the defending champion Darling Downs Suns gave him an irresistible case to take out the player of the tournament medal.
Jared Jackson finished the tournament with 16 wickets at an average of 5.69 and an economy rate of 3.17.
Other notable performances came from Far North bowler Seth McGinty who took 14 wickets and Central Queensland batsman Luke Sanderson who scored 192 runs for the tournament, including 103* at an average of 64.
