Jayden Goodwin’s sensational form has continued at the 2018 Under 17 Male National Championships in Mackay.

 

The Western Australia skipper - following scores of 76*, 64 and 93* in his first three matches - has now reached three figures, smashing an unbeaten 114 to lead his side to victory against Victoria Country in Round 4.

 

It takes the rising star’s run tally - and average - to an incredible 347.

 

With four rounds to play in tournament, he’s 238 runs shy of breaking the all-time runs record (574) held by South Australian duo Callum Ferguson (2001-02) and Kelvin Smith (2011-12).

 

Goodwin’s knock and three wickets to Michael Herbst scored their side a six-wicket win against the Victorians, who were bowled out for 211.

 

Tom Scott (54) and Bailey Jenkinson (51) scored their second and third half-centuries for the tournament respectively.

 

It was a different story for the Victoria Metro side, who thumped reigning champions NSW Metro by 114 runs.

 

Max Stevenson (69) and Ashley Chandrasinghe (56) led the Victorians to 9-226, before Will Parker (4-27), Miles Selllenger (3-31) and Bailey Moon (3-17) dismissed NSW Metro for just 112.

 

South Australia’s Kyle Brazell - last year’s player of the championships - also scored a Round 4 century. Brazell’s 106 guided the boys in red to a five-wicket win against the Cricket Australia XI, chasing down 215 with almost 10 overs to spare.

 

Queensland scored a 57-run win over Tasmania.

 

Nick McGill’s 61 took the Queenslanders to a total of 232, with the Tasmanians bowled out for 175 in reply despite a defiant 85 from captain Mitchell Owen.

 

Ryan Walker (4-39) and Matthew Wiseman (3-25) impressed with the ball for the hosts.

 

ACT/NSW Country’s bowling attack proved too strong for Northern Territory, with Harrison Townsend (4-12) and Tanvir Singh (3-19) dismissing the NT side for 116.

 

Brock Larance made short work of the run chase with a run-a-ball 71, as ACT/NSW Country sealed victory by six wickets.

 

The tournament now moves to Brisbane, with Round 5 matches on Sunday.
