Queenstown cricketers make reps team


Four Queenstown cricketers are playing for Otago Country in the first round of the Dunedin club competition.

Batsman Fraser Wilson and bowling all-rounders Sean Windle, Mark Hubber and development player Jake Johnson played their season-opener for Country last Saturday – a five-wicket loss to Kaikorai.

This Saturday they travel to Dunedin to play Green Island, who’ll probably be bolstered by star New Zealand cricketer Jesse Ryder.

Ryder’s recent six-month ban for failing a drugs test expires this weekend.
