Bunbury’s Sam Whiteman has continued his poor run of form for Western Australia, managing just six runs in two innings during the Warriors recent Sheffield Shield win against South Australia at the WACA. The left-hander was removed in hapless fashion in the first innings when he strangled a ball down the leg-side to diving Redbacks’ wicketkeeper Alex Carey, leaving WA 1-0. The Warriors required 120 runs for victory in the last innings when Whiteman made his way to the crease with fellow opener Cameron Bancroft. The former Colts Cricket Club player was removed for just six in the second innings when he edged a ball from Nathan McAndrew that seemed away from around the wicket into the gloves of Carey. The Warriors cruised to a six-wicket win in the match thanks to a solid batting game from Cameron Green and a man-of-the match performance from seamer Joel Paris. Whiteman is averaging less than 20 this season with five scores under 10 and three scores between 40 and 49. Meanwhile in the WBBL, Bunbury’s Chloe Piparo has continued to impress with a run-a-ball 29 against the Sydney Sixers. Piparo came to the crease at three after the dismissal of New Zealand star Sophie Devine (6) and combined with Beth Mooney (30) to give the home side a chance of chasing down the Sixers’ daunting total of 161. The Bunbury product looked in control as she hit seamer Maitlan Brown over her head for four and later cut spinner Ashleigh Gardner to the boundary. Former Scorcher Nicole Bolton proved the undoing of Piparo when she was bowled after not executing a sweep shot off the right arm spinner. The Scorchers finished 9-117 after their 20 overs to lose by 44 runs. Piparo was the second-highest scorer and is averaging 33 this season for the Scorchers, who play the Melbourne Renegades at the WACA on Wednesday.
