Opposition just cannot halt Aaron



ROCKHAMPTON cricketer Aaron Holt has produced the best bowling figures at the Imparja Cup in Alice Springs.

Playing for Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cricket team, Holt finished the carnival with 6/17 (9.1 overs) in his team's four-wicket win over New South Wales on Sunday night.

It was the third consecutive win for the Queenslanders, and for Holt.

Queensland ended the NSW run on 90 runs before replying with 6/91 in the day/night clash.

Holt saved the best for last after not featuring among the wickets in earlier matches.

"I was just looking to grab one,'' Holt said.

"Earlier (in the Cup) they weren't going to hand and there were a few edges, but in the final they came out of my hand well.''

Holt rates this win as the best out of the three considering they had six new young players in their line-up and the competition level is on the rise.

"It's just a great honour to represent my State and indigenous people while also promoting cricket.''

The pace bowler returned to Rockhampton last night and will resume club commitments for Gracemere this Saturday in the opening day's play of their final match for the season against Bluebirds at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds.
