Winter Watch: Captain Carter leads Newcastle to final

10 Nov 2023

In this week's Winter Watch roundup Oli Carter's latest round of games for Newcastle City in Australia, as he made another half-century to take them to a One Day Cup final, as well as news of plenty of wickets for Bertie Foreman. 

Sussex wicket-keeper batter Carter was named captain of Newcastle City Cricket Club this season and has responded with three half-centuries, as well as guiding them to a cup final, which takes place this Sunday. 

His unbeaten 63 from 56 balls was his third half-century of the season, helping his side to an eight-wicket victory in their final pool game, ensuring their place in the Tom Locker Final this weekend. 

After the completion of the one-day games, Oli is sitting 3rd on the overall run scorer table for the NDCA Competition on 203 runs @ 67.67. 

Bertie Foreman among the wickets

Sussex spinner Bertie Foreman is the second player from the Men's team to take the trip down under this winter and he hasn't wasted any time finding his form. 

In his last four matches, Bertie has taken a total of 11 wickets. Check out his figures here:

10 overs 3-12  vs Sydney (50 over)

28 overs 3-128 vs Gordon (red ball)
