Greenvale’s Jagadeswara Rao Koduru is looking forward to making the most of his second selection in a School Sports Victoria Cricket team.
After being part of the under-12 team in 2014, he has been picked in the under-15 team for the national championships which are being held in Queensland.
“It’s been good, there’s a couple of my teammates in the team too,” he said.
“We got nominated by our Wizards [region coach] and the school [PEGS] allows it. It was a similar process to last time, but a little bit harder.’’
The 14-year-old, who is a batsman who also enjoys bowling a bit of spin, said he was looking forward to the championships and hopes to make some new friends.
It’s been a big 12 months for the year 10 student, who played for the North West Wizards at the state championships and he joined Victorian Premier Cricket Club Northcote.
Koduru said the support of his parents, coach Stan Nell and the coaches at Northcote had helped him massively.
