Sadit the Sojourner

SADIT Reza has vowed to be back home in Warwick at Christmas for his second season with RSL Diggers.

In between his Warwick cricket commitments, Reza will spend the year in Melbourne at La Trobe University where he will study dentistry.

"I enrolled for a small course like La Trobe as they accept undergraduate entries," he said.

After finishing school at Dunedin in New Zealand in 2011, Reza moved to Warwick to be with family and joined Diggers club.

He has scores of 50, 32, four and two in his four bats in the town.

Reza kept wickets in two of his games.

The 18-year-old was also asked to play representative cricket in Warwick. He played representative cricket in Dunedin.

Comparing cricket in two countries, he has no doubt the cricket is less serious in Warwick. With finishing positions in the A-grade top four up for grabs on Sunday, there was plenty of rivalry in the game between Diggers and Warwick Hotel Colts.

Reza batted at first drop and faced up to some fiery deliveries from South Queensland underage fast bowler Matt Elford who used the synthetic wicket at Dunning Oval to extract plenty of bounce. Reza, who has no plans to finish his cricket season with a game at Dunning Oval, is already eyeing off some club cricket in Melbourne.
