Over-40s cricket is developing quickly. Two countries have just completed their national over-40s tournaments.In Australia, New South Wales beat Queensland by 10 wickets to emerge victorious in the Australian National Championships.It was great to see that the Aussie over-40s did not impose mandatory batting retirements in this tournament (their over-50s still do). This allowed for some great run-scoring, with 4 individual centuries scored, and 4 batsmen scoring more than 200 runs (Jeff Hemming, 265 runs at 132; Ash Hardy, 238 runs at 119; Danny Batra, 231 at 77; and Richie Wyld, 216 at 54). The top wicket-taker was former Sri Lankan first-class player Suresh Perera, who picked up 9 wickets at 13.78, followed by Dane Stevenson (8 at 9.63). It was also fantastic to see many of the Division 1 games live-streamed.
