LTT is very proud of Junior Taverner Jarrod Freeman!

A starring display in Tasmania’s impressive under-19 cricket carnival has landed Jarrod Freeman the ultimate prize of a spot in Australia’s World Cup squad.

The off-spinning, middle-order dasher shone for the Tigers at the underage championships, which wrapped up on Friday and was rewarded for his performances with a spot alongside some of the best emerging talents in the country.

Seven players who hold state rookie contracts have been named in the 15-man squad, which will head to New Zealand next month for the three-week tournament.
