This where the Australian Pathways cricket journey begins. At least for those wishing to specialise in white ball cricket. One of these days CA may include a red ball component in the National U17 and U19 tournaments. I for one will praise the decision.

U17 Champs Day 1 Report   A magnificent bowling performance by Western Australia headlined a tense opening day of the Under 17 Male National Championships in Mackay.   Sharad Jessani was the pick of the bowlers on day 1 taking 4-31 as the Northern Territory were bowled out for 97. Victoria Country’s Joshua Garner took superb figures of 4-65 in their defeat to Queensland, and Isaac Higgins was the only centurion of the day with 108 for South Australia.

U17 Champs Day 2 Report   It was another enthralling day of cricket in Mackay for round 2 of the Under 17 Male National Championships with Isaac Higgins once again stealing the show.   Higgins’ unbeaten score of 110, his second ton of the series, aided South Australia to a marginal 5 run win over Cricket Australia XI.   The standout bowling performance of the day came from Reiley Mark who achieved impressive figures of 4-18 in Victoria Country’s defeat of Northern Territory. &nbs..

They're all still kids from Qld. Mitchell Pascoe is still at school at Nudgee College. Connor Sully has left Nudgee College now, playing for Norths, nothing overly impressive yet but he isn't permanent first grade yet. Jet Liebke is playing First grade for Sandgate Redcliffe, I know a Jack Clayton who is doing well at 1st grade, I don't know of a Max though, maybe brothers.. I know of a Jack Prestwidge who is one of the leading bowlers in grade cricket, I don't know of William. Not playing First Grade doesn't mean they're not good, it is highly competitive as only 12 teams.

Western Australia have been crowned Under-17 men's National champions after a thrilling one-run victory over NSW Metro in Mackay on Thursday.

In one of the tightest finishes in the history of the under-age championships, WA claimed three wickets in the final two overs of a nail-biting clash to secure their first Under-17 title in eight years.

SCORECARD: WA beat NSW Metro by one run



Was surprised by NSW metro making the GF after being defeated by Qld in round 2, WA were the most consistent team, but only one in the national team, weird.

U17 CA XI: Isaac Higgins (SA), Ryley Smith (NSW M), Cooper Connolly (WA), Sam Wright (Tas), Liam Blackford (Vic C) Nivethan Radhakrishnan (NSW M), Dylan Kritzinger (Qld), Toby Snell (Qld), Jackson Sinfield (Qld), Liam Dodrell (NSW M), Tom Whitney (Qld), Aiden Cahill (ACT/NSW C), Marcus Jackman (Vic M), Aubrey Stockdale (Qld). Reserves: Darcy Munro (Vic M), Jack Nisbet (NSW M), Lachlan Bell (Qld), Jordan Hesline (Vic M)

Isacc Higgins massive scores av 71 with 2 centuries and a 96 (hit wicket, tried to give the bowlers some way of getting him out). Cooper Connolly av 66 with the bat 13 with the ball had a big tournament. Sam Wright averaged 45 with some big scores

Surprised Lachlan Bell didn't get an automatic selection after scoring 2 centuries for the tournament and averaging 52, but Ryley Smith who only averaged 34 got the nod instead as opener. Radhakrishnan averaged 23 also very surprised, but keeping it fair Kritizinger only averaged 29. Toby Snell is the keeper. Jackson Sinfield, Liam Dodrell and Aiden Cahill were solid with bat and ball. The team does appear a bit light on the batsmen selected, a few too many bowlers

Nothing unusual about Vics, Blues and Qlanders dominating national squads Mike. Isn't this a token only squad as there are no U17 internationals to my knowledge. There is a scheme where the best under 17 Pathway cricketers are sent to the sub continent to be embedded into a local grade level team. Or at least they used to.
How did ACT pace man Harrison Townsend not make the team as he was the prime wicket taker. . yet Aiden Cahill and Marcus Jackman did with less wickets. Radhakrishnan made the team as a bowling all rounder. Big wraps on this kid.. bowls with both arms unless mistaken. CAX1 rep Liam Blackford must be a real prospect to make this team. The CA players are usually a year younger than the regular national players. This is where Sangha was first identified. Dont make same mistake and rush Blackford into senior cricket before he is ready.

Response
Vics barely dominated the squad with only 1 selection (Marcus Jackman). 2 including the U15 CA XIs Liam Blackford (fantastic to watch).
CA have really focused on injury prevention, in relation to fast bowlers, lately. In the U17 carnival quicks were restricted to only 40-42 (not sure exactly) total overs for the carnival. This meant player management played a key role in quicks opportunities. Spinners, on the other hand, were allowed to bowl 15 overs (max) per game for all 6 rounds - possibly 90 overs in total as opposed to pace bowlers 40-42!). So you would be right in concluding that spinners topped the tables in wicket taking. Although in most cases their averages were a little inflated. I’m sure you can work out that this is a huge advantage to spinners - if you are going to select the CA XI purely on stats..... witch CA certainly do not. There are quite a number of factors regarding selection which CA state: “The Australian Cricket Talent Management staff will select a squad of 14 players who demonstrate performance and character traits required to provide the best chance to develop into future elite players.”
In regards to Harrison Townsend bowls left arm orthodox, according to the tournament booklet.
http://www.nationalchamps.com.au/files/17240/files/Series%20Programs/ca_u17_program_19-20_20pp_fa03_web3.pdf
Ryley Smith may seem a surprise but I watched him in the U15s National Carnival where he dominated opening the batting for NSW Green and was a man among boys. He made the U15s CA XI that year and obviously left an impact on the selectors. With that said he batted the same way this time around (very aggressively), and had NSW Metro off to some great starts. 
As for Marcus Jackman, he was the leading wicket taker for pace bowlers by a long shot. I’m taking into account his very low average and also the quality of wickets. 9 of his 11 wickets were top order batsmen, including Issac Higgins for 17 Round 3 (who in rounds 1 & 2 had previously made back to back 100s). In that match he took out the highly fancied SA top order to record 5/20.
CA film all matches and have them coded + speeds recorded for quicks/revolutions recorded for tweakers. If they see raw talent that they believe they can harness and work with I suppose that trumps a stat line.
Although the U17s CA XI squad may seem heavily stacked with bowlers, it includes emergencies (all bowlers). Again this reflects CAs protection of fast bowlers injuries. The selected side will play in this years U19s carnival. Less the quicks, they will play the following year (2021 - by this time, taking their age/susceptibility to injury into account, backups maybe needed) and last years selected quicks will fill those roles of this years squad. Confusing but hope that makes sense. This was explained with the announcement.
http://www.nationalchamps.com.au/pageitem.aspx?id=171485&id2=1&eID=17240&entityID=17240
Either way you look at it someone is (probably rightly so) going to feel hard done by. I believe there were 7x 100s scores and 50+ 50s this year.

A century to captain Lachlan Hearne has led NSW Metro to the Male Under 19 National Championships title at the WACA.

Hearne, 18, made a 100 from 130 balls during a 48-run win for NSW Metropolitan over Victoria Country in the Final, on Thursday, sharing a 166-run partnership with Zee Ahmed (83) to steer Metro out of early trouble at 3/15 batting first.

Hearne was named Player of the Final for his performance and is one of five NSW Metro players selected in the 15-man Australian squad for the 2020 ICC Under 19 World Cup in South Africa early next year.

NSW Blues rookie batsman Ollie Davies, who missed the Under 19 national titles due to injury, leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha and pacemen Brad Simpson and Liam Marshall have all been chosen in the Australian Under 19 squad.

Australia U19 World Cup squad: Cooper Connolly (WA), Oliver Davies (NSW), Sam Fanning (WA), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Mackenzie Harvey (VIC), Lachlan Hearne (NSW), Corey Kelly (WA), Liam Marshall (NSW), Todd Murphy (VIC), Patrick Rowe (VIC), Tanveer Sangha (NSW), Liam Scott (SA), Bradley Simpson, Connor Sully, Matthew Willans (QLD).

I can not understand how William Bowering (SA), Bailey Moon (CAX1) or Will Lovell (VIC) did not make the bowling attack or Mitchell Owen (Tas), Dylan Brasher (VIC) or Jack Attenborough (NSW) and Isaac Higgins (CAX1) the batting lineup. How on earth did Qlders Matthew Villans 2 wts @62 and Connor Sully 5w @32 /142rs @28 get gigs.

From the perspective of another sport, where I have a lot more knowledge and insight than cricket, may young players don't kick on from outstanding youth players to seniors, Baggers.

In that sport many fans express concern about performance and development of young players, only to see them fade as seniors. Sometimes others who have been mediocre develop later.

There are plenty of reasons for this DC as I see it. A 17 year old is at an impressionable age.. a time when they are a long way from finding their true niche in life. Cricket is no more than a past time to them.. specially as it is mostly slap and tickle short formats. There are distractions like school, the opposite gender, other sports. Once a cricketer reaches the 19 yr level they have a greater idea of what they want to do. Do I want a 9-5 job or am I of sufficient ability to make a living from cricket. Once in the CA Pathway they are half way to a cricketing career. Now they have other distractions like.. what format do they prefer playing, what technique to adopt,  how do I handle failure, can I cope with the pressure of expectation that will put on me by the media. I believe the latter two are arguably the prime reasons so many promising cricketers fall by the wayside.

Some good points made here, Baggers. 

At a coaching seminar held by one of the biggest clubs in Australian soccer/football I asked one of Aus’s top pro coaches to explain why player X at his club was an embryonic superstar at age 17, who struggled to improve for the next  8 years, whilst player Y seemed to make a lot of late progress from about age 25 onwards - ending up Australian captain? 

He said it it was a very complex process and virtually inexplicable why players develop, or stop developing at different phases of their career. 

I used to be concerned over young players’ development in football, but so many young teenage stars fade out. 

I suppose it happens in cricket too. 

I think Jake Doran was a superstar as an underage player at 18-19, but has struggled to transfer it to senior level on a consistent basis - yet.

The outstanding young batter in terms of my understanding of technical shotmaking, and also in the opinion of experts, is Will Pucovski. 

I just hope he transfers as a quality senior player.

Will may well be one of those inflicted by my two suggestions how do I handle failure, can I cope with the pressure of expectation .. Are these leading to mental problems as Will has suffered from. Jordan Silk, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell also and I fear Jason Sangha will join them.

They're all still kids from Qld. Mitchell Pascoe is still at school at Nudgee College. Connor Sully has left Nudgee College now, playing for Norths, nothing overly impressive yet but he isn't permanent first grade yet. Jet Liebke is playing First grade for Sandgate Redcliffe, I know a Jack Clayton who is doing well at 1st grade, I don't know of a Max though, maybe brothers.. I know of a Jack Prestwidge who is one of the leading bowlers in grade cricket, I don't know of William. Not playing First Grade doesn't mean they're not good, it is highly competitive as only 12 teams.

Connor Sully and Matthew Willans are the two Qlders currently in SAfrica for the U19 WC Mike. How on earth did Villans 2 wts @62  in the Nationals get a WC gig when blokes with far better credentials missed out. There were one or two Blues too that were not worthy of a WC cap but I pointed out this as he wa by far the most glaring non omission. Willans is over 2 mtrs but does not appear to use his great elevation going on footage I saw of him.  Even your William  Prestwidge with 6 @29 deserved the nod over him. William is no doubt a relation of Jack. I understand there is another brother.
