Alex wins World Cup

As a young cricketer, Alex Floros of Year 11 dreamed of becoming a world champion in the sport – and his dream came true last week as his Australian U20 cricket side held aloft the Indoor Cricket World Cup in New Zealand.

Alex played a major role for the Aussies, picking up man-of-the-match honours against South Africa and boasting solid statistics throughout, but an influenza bug caught hold of his team and left Alex and a number of his teammates unable to participate in the final.

Luckily, the team was able to overcome the host nation in the final despite their star absentee, meaning the Australian side finished the competition undefeated.

Alex said missing the final was disappointing but described the feeling of winning a World Cup as 'special'.

"I had a pretty good tournament, but it was a bit disappointing to get sick and that played a part in me missing the final," he said.

"Having said that, being part of a World Cup winning team was a special feeling and I was grateful to be a part of it.

"It's something I've dreamed about, it's hard to explain the feeling."

The experience of winning a World Cup has only made Alex hungry for even more success in the future.

"The goal for any cricketer is to play outdoor cricket for Australia," he said.

"For now, though, I'm more than happy playing and focusing on indoor cricket and I'm setting a goal of representing the senior team at the World Cup in six years time."
