Warwick bowler up for a medal in national cricket today

CRICKET: Warwick cricketer Lucy Bourke will win a gold or silver medal in the Australian 10-12 years girls' cricket championships in Canberra.

She is part of the Queensland team that beat South Australia yesterday.

While there is no final, the draw has Queensland and Victoria meeting today on a turf wicket at Chisholm Oval in Canberra and both sides have four wins from four games in the carnival so far.

Lucy took 0-18 with the ball yesterday and hit seven runs off seven balls against South Australia.

After day three of the carnival, she had five wickets for 14 runs in her first 12 overs of the carnival, including seven maidens.

She had the second most wickets in the carnival and the most maidens of any bowler. The statistics are updated at the end of each day's play.

In today's game against Victoria, Queensland will need to watch the swing bowling of Jasmine Fleming, daughter of retired Test paceman and Big Bash League commentator Damien Fleming. Last year, Jasmine dismissed Lucy.

The Queensland boys are in the final. The current carnival is the second for Lucy at national level after she played for Queensland last year in Brisbane. New South Wales won last year but are out of contention for a title win this year.

She also represented Queensland in athletics last year.
