Nothing blue about the form of NSW

New South Wales is chasing a clean sweep at the National Indigenous Cricket Championships in Alice Springs.

The Blues have qualified for the men’s and women’s deciders following outstanding campaigns in the Red Centre.

Zoe Fleming and Alex Patten are enjoying life with the NSW women, looking to win the title for the 10th year in succession.

Gunnedah talent Fleming, 15, made her most telling contribution of the tournament as NSW downed old enemy Queensland at Jim McConville Park on Friday.

The all-rounder came in at number seven and made three not out from five deliveries late in the innings as the Blues posted 5-219 from its 20 overs.

Fleming then took a sharp catch to dismiss Maroons opener Tamika Hansen for one and bowled two overs, returning the figures of 0-15 as Queensland fell 70 short of the required mark.

Tamworth cricketer Patten, who attends NEGS in Armidale, has not yet been called upon to bat, but took her chance with the ball.

Patten took 2-1 from 1.2 overs as NSW knocked over Western Australia for just 27 at Jim McConville Park.

Patten bowled Shakiya Cross and Dainira Papertalk during her spell.

NSW took just 11 balls to overhaul the target.

Harrison Kelly has enjoyed a strong campaign with the NSW men’s side.

The Tamworth all-rounder has scored 57 runs and taken six wickets through five matches to date.

Kelly claimed 3-24 and scored 23 from 30 balls in a nine-wicket defeat of WA at Traeger Park.

Gunnedah's Zoe Fleming is among the region's cricketers representing NSW.
