The Queensland Country Brahmans and the Queensland Country Women's team have missed out on titles at the Australian Championships in Geraldton but have managed several individual honours.

Gladstone's Sam Lowry and Jason Sengr were stand-out performers for Queensland Country, as the Brahmans finished third on the ACCC Overall Competition ladder, behind Victoria Country and winners New South Wales Country.

 

The Queenslanders came second on both the One Day and T20 ladders.

 

Seng, who was only called in to the Queensland Country team as a last-minute replacement for the injured Justin Dixon, finished the Championships with 15 wickets at an average of 18.1 and an economy rate of 5.4.

 

 

Lowry dominated with the bat, finishing with 331 runs, averaging 36.8 with a top score of 76 against East Asia Pacific.

 

He finished with scores of 43, 13, 38, 31, 6, 37, 30, 76 and 57 from nine innings.

 

Lowry, who will play Premier Cricket with Sandgate-Redcliffe, was one of five Queenslanders picked in the merit-based Australian Country side at the conclusion of the championships.

 

Mackay's Mitchell English was recognised as Australia's best country batsman after a starring role at the Australian Country Cricket Championships.

 

English received the Bradman award as the Australian Country Cricket Championships best batsman.

 

Across six T20s, including a grand final loss to New South Wales Country, and five 50 over innings, English plundered 329 runs at an average of 32.9, including an unbeaten 116 against Western Australia Country, where he hammered 16 fours and 3 sixes to get his side home.

He also scored 83 off just 36 deliveries.

The Queensland Country Women's team finished as runners-up to South Australia after a thrilling semi-final win over Victoria which had finished on top of the ladder after the regular competition rounds.

 

 

South Australia made 6-107 and Queensland was 7-94 at the end of its 20 overs.

 

 

A day earlier, Queensland scored 8-136 to beat Victoria's 7-125.
