Name: Max Croft
Club: Swifts-Great Western
How long have you been playing cricket? This is my first season of cricket but I did four seasons of Milo Cricket before this year.
Best figures as either a batsman or bowler? I've taken two wickets this season but in separate games. I've made 10 runs not out.
What is the best piece of advice you've been given? Play the ball on its merits. If the bowler bowls a good ball knock it, if it's a bad bowl hit it. My Dad told me that.
What is your biggest challenge in cricket? When the ball is coming at you while you are fielding, you want to try and get in front of it and try not to get hurt.
Do you have any superstitions? I don't have any.
What's your favourite food? Home made pizza with bacon, cheese, ham, sausage and salami with a tomato base.
