Bendemeer Bullet brings his best

JR Hazlewood has produced some of his best work on the biggest stage claiming 3 for 16 off his four overs in a miserly spell of bowling.

With a dot ball percentage of 75, Hazlewood was able to tighten the screws and pick up some key wickets along the way.

The boy from Bendemeer on the Macdonald River in the New England region of NSW has taken his skills to the biggest stage and delivered the goods.

Resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction has penned this Haiku poem in honour of his performance in the decider.

Kane Williamson T20 masterclass

NZ skipper Kane Williamson has delivered a batting masterclass in the World T20 Final. After being one off his first seven balls, he built his tempo steadily moving to 15 off 16 balls before really upping the ante on his was to the fastest fifty in a mens World t20 final going past JE Root and Kumar Sangakkara who achieved the milestone off 33 balls hitting consecutive sixes to bring up the milestone off just 32 balls.

His 85 off just 48 balls is the highest by a captain in a mens T20 World Cup Final demonstrating his wonderful skills in the T20 format.
