Scott Borthwick spent his winter in Adelaide learning more about the dark arts of legspin. He got to spend time with Shane Warne and Mushtaq Ahmed. They were very complimentary about him. So too were TMS when the Ashes show moved into town.
Now he is applying that winter work with some success.
He was instrumental in our win over Warwickshire. A double wicket maiden is always good when you are trying to restrict a team’s second innings total. He got 3 of the top order batsmen in a match altering spell. Recording a personal best of 4 wickets for 25 off of thirteen overs, which saw the Bears all out with a lead of only 101.
And with Diva struggling with a thigh strain, Scott successfully stepped into the breach as opening batsman. And with 48 unbeaten runs, lead the team to victory with a final boundary.
And all that just a few days after his 21st Birthday.
