HE’S KNOWN for his class with the bat.

But Brierly-Christ Church’s Campbell Love is finding his groove as a bowler at the pinnacle of under 15 cricket.

Love, 15, has snared eight wickets from just three matches in an inconsistent Victoria Country outfit.

He wreaked havoc against Northern Territory on Tuesday, claiming four victims for just 13 runs off five overs – a feat which propelled him to second in the tournament’s bowling aggregate ranks.

It comes after solid form in division one and under 17s for Brierly-Christ Church, which Love has credited for his success at representative level.

Grampians-based cricketer Vincent Huf, who is also suiting up for Victoria Country at the tournament, scored seven runs on debut from number nine.

Huf rose to prominance in 2016 with a century in his senior debut at just 12 years old. The carnival, which had a mid-week interval on Wednesday, resumes on Thursday morning with Love and Huf to tackle South Australia.
