Glenorchy's Ed Cowan in Boxing Day Test Match

Glenorchy's favorite son ex Sydney-sider Ed Cowan has been selected to play for Australia in the Boxing Day Test match, the biggest stage of all for Australian Cricketers. The Glenorchy Cricket Club is extremely proud to have their first baggy green at the club.
Who would have thought that two guys with different dreams of playing in the boxing day test would collide in an odd club cricket match at Uni early in the season, a game that started their drive to the Australian Cricket team. The game was made famous for Josh Bean using the gas axe to burn the moisture off the pitch to get the game started.
It has been said that both Ed & Hilfy owe a thanks to Tristan Penneyston for a single moment - his dismissal. T got out early and allowed Ed to dominate the game with a match winning 72 no, from here Ed kicked on in state and representative games culminating in an impressive run of 100's and his test selection. Ben Hilfenhaus obviously kicked on after the confidence boosting dismissal of T and hasn't looked back regaining fitness, form & a recall.
The club wishes Ed well, a gentleman, a thinker, emotional, couragous and commited, good luck Eddie, now you are in the firing line big time.
