The Curly Kid who carved up the West Indies

He’s faced Mitchell Starc in the nets, batted No.3 for Sydney Thunder and competed in the U/19 World Cup.

And they’ve long known at Manly Warringah DCC that the boy can bat.

But nothing prepared 22-year-old North Curl Curl local Oliver Davies for walking out to face the West Indies Test bowling attack in Canberra on Saturday.

And then he smashed 115 off 106 balls.

I didn’t have expectations going in,” Davies said. “I just went out and played my shots and it went okay.”

That it did.
