The Finley High School Year 11 student was selected in the 12-man side after trials in Wagga.

‘‘There were three main selectors.’’
Oliver said he was selected in the final cut out of about 27 boys.
The 12-man side heads to the state carnival which is being held in February in north Sydney.
An opening right arm fast-medium bowler and right hand lower order bat, Oliver is looking forward to his chance to play in the illustrious CHS side.
