Handy all rounder, Molly Strano and wicketkeeper/batsman Dylan Kight have both walked away from season 2010-11 $1000 richer thanks to the Commonwealth Bank.
Named as the 2011 Commonwealth Bank Future Stars, an award that recognises talented young Victorian cricketers, Strano and Kight (who was absent on the night) were presented with their cheques and trophies at Cricket Victoria’s annual Gala Awards at the Crown Palladium last week.
All-rounder Strano made the DEC Spirit rookie list for season 2010-11 and was also selected into the Victorian CA Women’s Cup team which competed in the ACT. The vice-captain of the Victorian U18 team shined with the ball at the National Championships in Adelaide early on this year taking 15 wickets.
Strano’s leading wicket-taking efforts saw her named as Bowler of the Tournament and her efforts over the last year front lined her to take out the Female CBA Future Star Award.
Kight, who has represented the Western Spirit U16 and U18 regional teams, was also selected into the Victorian U19 team this season and boasts that achievement as one of his proudest cricketing moments.
The wicketkeeper/batsman scored 63 against Richmond and is dedicated to improving his game throughout the off season.
Both Strano and Kight received a $1000 cheque each presented to them by the Commonwealth Bank’s Regional Marketing Manager Karen Boase.
