Few things are more sought after by cricket captains than a high quality, reliable, hard-working opening bowler.
Wesley-CBC captain Sam McCosh said he was fortunate to have such an asset in Tom Bowman.
“Tom has led our attack for a lot of years now, he is just so determined, he hammers away on a good line and length all day,” McCosh said.
“He has a big engine and loves bowling. Batsmen find him tough to get away, he doesn’t give away cheap runs.
“He is a really important member of our team.”
A left-arm paceman, Bowman has taken 19 wickets from 11 Warrnambool and District Cricket Association games this season.
Bowman has been a bright light in what has been an up-and-down season for the Beavers.
Losses in both Twenty20 games last weekend were a setback for Wesley-CBC which now sits in seventh place on the ladder but still within reach of the top four.
“It wasn’t ideal losing both Twenty20s but there is a lot of cricket still to go,” McCosh said.
The Beavers begin a two-day game against Russells Creek on Saturday.
