Australia lead the charge at the World Indoor Cricket Federation (W.I.C.F.) Indoor Cricket World Cup, sitting atop all four division ladders at the half way mark of the tournament.

 

The Australian Open Men’s team, led by captain Lyle Teske, are yet to be tested on the scoreboard as they soar to seven unanswered victories.

 

The Aussies have averaged winning margins of more than 70 runs against each of the competing teams.

 

Host country, United Arab Emirates (UAE), have finished closest in margin to the Aussies so far, losing by just 12 runs on the second day of the tournament.

 

Jay Otto has been a strong contributor for Australia with a division-high 13 wickets on top of his 53 runs with the bat.

 

Australia’s Open Women have dominated within their division, taking all points up for grabs in each of their games and scoring triple figures on five occasions.

 

Ashleigh Doble has scored 81 runs for her side while team captain and experienced campaigner Jude Coleman is the division’s leading wicket taker with 13 wickets to her name.

 

Australia’s 21 & Under Women are also undefeated after five matches.

 

Young gun and Australian debutant, Emily Vallance, has piled on 93 runs in a wave of strong performances for her side.

 

Samantha Arnold has played in important role in each of Australia’s victories and is the competition’s leading contributor with 71 runs, 8 wickets, and a total contribution average of 17.

 

In the 21 & Under Men’s division, Australia sit 10 points clear of second-placed New Zealand.



Adrian Lascu and Blair Oakley have been dominant with the bat, scoring 99 and 86 runs respectively in their five matches.

 

After four days of action, all countries have a day off to recoup ahead of their final round games.
