And three Limestone Coast players – Patrick Page, Ryan Hosking and Matthew Allen – are among those who have helped the team to three wins from four matches to sit second behind NSW on the competition ladder with just one round remaining. While the team lost to Victoria in a Round 1 one-day match it hasn't looked back since, defeating Western Australia in a one-day match, Northern Territory in a two-day match and Tasmania in another two-day fixture. Despite the loss Hosking was economical with the ball against Victoria, conceding just 18 runs from his three overs. Page was quiet with the bat, falling for four runs off 15 balls and Allen managed just three runs from 11 balls. But in the second one-day game of the series against WA the trio fired up, with Hosking snaring two wickets for nine runs of three overs, Page scoring 27 runs from 53 balls and Allen chipping in with 20 from 26. In the two-day match against NT the fast-bowling duo of Allen and Hosking snared a wicket each while Page was impressive with a knock of 75 from 107 balls, which included eight fours and a six. Page was again among the runs in the two-day fixture against Tasmania with 41 runs from 51 balls. In the field the trio has also been sharp, with Allen holding four catches, Page two and Hosking one. The competition continues today with South Australia facing ACT in a final-round two-day fixture.
