Brock Ridgewell tearing in to bowl for West Tamworth against South Tamworth at Riverside 1, en route to taking five wickets, was a welcome sight for a side searching for their first win of the season.
They got it, beating Souths by 37 runs in the fourth-round one-dayer on Saturday. Ridgewell claimed 5-17 off eights overs.
It was his second match this season (he went wicketless against the Bulls the previous round), after only playing two games last season because he went to Sydney for university.
In the 2017-18 season he was the competition's leading wicket-taker, with 38 scalps at 17.82.
