Great preparation downunder
As the Australian cricketing summer comes to a close over the next few months so will the affiliations of a few Danish cricketers abroad will have where there clubs. Jonas Henriksen and Nicolaj Damgaard have been plying there trade with the Heathcote cricket club in Christchurch. Nicolaj has been one of the strongest performers in the league as an allrounder. He only recently was on top of the MVP ladder in the top league. Nicolaj has been a consistent high quality performer with the ball but has made some very useful contributions with his late order hitting and the odd promotion up the order which Big Nico would know doubt have relished.
Jonas has found the going slightly more difficult than Nicolaj which has seen him play a mixture of mainly first team but some second team cricket as well. It was great to see Jonas get into some form of late with the bat and is also back bowling. Jonas is a player of immense talent and the trip down under will no doubt be a great learning curb for him.
Anders Bulow has been playing for the South Launceston cricket club in Tasmania. Anders is also playing in the premier division. Anders has performed creditably with the ball without taking a lot of wickets but not going for a lot of runs either. On the batting side of things, Anders has seemed to struggle with the slow pace of the wickets and hasn’t managed to really get going with any scores of note. I am sure like the rest of the guys away, good learning will take place and Anders will come back to Denmark a better and wiser player for the experience.
Olive Hald has been in Adelaide just under a month now and has already played a few games for his new club, Northern districts cricket club and for the Darren Lehman cricket Academy. Oliver, like the rest of the boys is playing in the top league in Adelaide and opening the bowling plus the added bonus of playing alongside Ex Australian cricket player, Mark Cosgrove. Oliver is thoroughly enjoying the challenge of playing with and against current South Australian representatives and also foreign Academies from overseas.
Denmark captain Freddie Klokker has just arrived in Perth and will be playing a few games for the South Perth cricket club before we head to Malaysia. He will shortly be joined by Anique Udin who travels to Perth in a little over a weeks time.
We are very much looking forward to catching up with all the boys in Perth and seeing how much they have know doubt developed their individual games.
