Last week it was two hat-tricks.

This week it’s five wickets in five balls.

The National Sports Council’s Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Tournament is certainly living up to its lofty expectations.

Ten-year-old Javon Cummins was the toast of the tournament yesterday, after leading powerhouse Bayleys Primary to an impressive ten-wicket victory over Hilda Skeene.

Cummins took five for six runs to reduce Hilda Skeene from 37 without loss to be bowled out for 47. 

Bayleys knocked off the runs without losing a wicket to move their record to 4-0. 

Cummins bowled two batsmen, two were caught and one was stumped. In the over where he took the five wickets a catch was actually  put down off the first ball. The Class 3 student also featured in two run-outs for his team. (BA)
