Brilliant back to back performances for Campbelltown Camden have confirmed that young spinner Tanveer Sangha is on the way up in Australian cricket.
Yesterday, Sangha, who calls Ingleburn home, teamed up with his Ghosts skipper, Jarrad Burke, to claim nine wickets between them against highly fancied Sutherland.
Sangha’s figures of 5 for 70 followed his haul of 6 for 33 against the University of NSW in round two of the premiership.
Currently in the Australian Under 19 and Sydney Thunder squads, Sangha, who is only 17, has started the 2019-20 season on fire.
Who knows how high he will end up if he can keep spinning batsmen out in the Sydney competition, especially at Raby, where he picked up his latest bag of wickets.
His and Burke’s effort (4/50) have set up the Ghosts with a big chance to go three from three this season when play resumes on day two next Saturday.
Campbelltown Camden require a further 157 runs for victory, having lost two wickets when they batted against the students, who were dismissed for 229.
Youngster Adam Ison departed after making 24 and his opening partner Aaron Yabsley for 14.
Phil Wells (15 not out) and Jaydyn Simmons (16 not out) then steered the innings through to stumps with the Ghosts 2 for 73.
Sutherland, who won the toss and elected to bat, went to lunch doing well at 2 for 116.
But then the Sangha and Burke show was introduced and the visitors barely lasted to tea.
Both bowlers were well supported by their fielders, with clean catching behind the stumps to Sangha.
Tough, high catches in the wind were also taken cleanly.
The Ghosts took eight catches in total with stand in keeper Phil Wells taking two plus a stumping.
Play resumes at 10.30am next Saturday at Raby.
