SPORT 33 FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2014 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU Jhy’s in top form with the ball By ADAM LUITJES ALTHOUGH still a teenager, Jhy Berry has become the mainstay of Mildura East Cricket Club’s bowling attack. The 19-year-old hasn’t looked back since making his First Division debut three years ago, turning heads with his ac- curate fast bowling. In round four, Jhy ripped through Irymple’s line-up to record his best figures of 6/35. “That was my first five-for in First Division,” Jhy said. “It was a pretty good mile- stone.” A prodigious talent, Jhy says he’s been lucky to play along- side some of the region’s most decorated players. “Tom Vadlja is always good to get advice from,” he said. “He knows a lot about the game. “Brett Higgins and Jason Bruhn are other experienced guys, who are always good to chat with.” Having spent his whole career at Easts, Jhy played an integral role in last season’s drought-breaking First Divi- sion grand final victory. “It would be the best mo- ment of my senior career,” Jhy said. “It’s hard to tell at this point in the season, but I’d give us a good shot at going back- to-back.” Playing alongside older brother Josh, Jhy is enjoying testing himself in the region’s premier competition. “I always looked forward to playing First Division,” Jhy said. “Coming through the ju- niors I wanted to play at the highest level possible. “It lifts your game when you play against better opposition.” A regular Mallee Murray Bulls representative, Jhy has high hopes of taking his cricket to the next level, if the opportu- nity arises. Although experiencing a rapid rise through the senior ranks, Jhy admits there is plen- ty of room for improvement. “I need to become more consistent,” Jhy said. “I always seem to bowl that one bad ball each over, and I kick myself for doing it.” • NEED FOR SPEED: Jhy Berry is a fast bowler with a bright future.
