|Victoria: Just turned 20 y.o. Will Pucovski. Right hand bat. Came into the Victorian team to replace Peter Handscomb.
He scored 188 from 414 balls to keep his team in the hunt, after Q'land had declared on 5/452, in the current SS match. It's his 4th. first class match and his second for the Bushies. His other 2 were for the CA XI. Until today, he averaged just 10.8 with the bat.
South Australia: 24 y.o. Nick Winter - He's a lefty. Medium pace. In just his second first class match, he took 5/48 & 5/61 against NSW, in Round 7 of Sheffield Shield.
He took 5/85 on debut, against Victoria, in Round 6. There's probably a similar or even better first 4 bowling innings in first class cricket but three 5fas is certainly impressive.
Just to get a run with the Redbacks is notewporthy, as they have three high profile quicks, in Chadd Sayers, Dan Worrall and Joe Mennie.
It's a game. Enjoy it.
