Young South West batsman Jayden Goodwin had a mixed start to his Under-19 Australian Cricket Championships in Victoria this week.

After Western Australia’s first game of the tournament against Queensland was rained out on Monday, the team had a tough clash against New South Wales Metro on Tuesday.

Jayden went into bat for WA at number seven, with his team in trouble at 5/32 after an early order collapse.

But the Colts batsman partnered with Bradley Hope (75) to put on a 46-run partnership before Jayden was eventually run out by Jack Edwards for 15 runs off 41 balls.

WA made 205 from its 50 overs, giving New South Wales Metro a decent run chase despite a poor start.

Goodwin did not get a chance to bowl his leg spinners, with New South Wales Metro winning by five wickets with three overs left.

WA’s next match is today against the Cricket Australia XI.
