Overseas Players & Coaches 2024

Rush Cricket Club is delighted to announce Joshua Doyle & Ocean Bartlett as our men's and women's overseas players for 2024.

Joshua is batting all-rounder playing for both Kensington Cricket Club (SACA Premier Cricket) and South Australia (State 2nd XI Cricket). An opening batter who bowls off-spin, Doyle has been instrumental in Kensington’s success in recent years. He forms part of the leadership group (VC in 1st Grade, and T20 Skipper) that has helped guide the Brown’s to 4 Premierships. Personally, he has excelled with 3,344 runs at 37.16 and 111 wickets at 29.16 in his 100 plus 1st Grade games for the Club, including 1,098 runs at 45.75 and 35 wickets at 21.51 during the 2021/22 summer. At representative level, Doyle represented Northern Territory at U17 and U19 level before moving to Sydney, and more recently, Adelaide. Over the past few seasons, he has been involved with the Emerging Redbacks, with the highlight successive tons (112, and 110*) against Victoria in the Toyota State 2nd XI competition.

Ocean Bartlett is one of New Zealand’s most exciting young spin bowling all-rounders – representing New Zealand U19 Women, NZ Maori Schoolgirls, and debuting for the Central Hinds at just 17 years old. The Hinds’ star has enjoyed quite the career to date, skippering the New Zealand Maori Secondary Schoolgirls (2021), St Matthew Collegiate (2020-21), and Central Districts U19s (2020-21), helping guide the latter to national U19 titles in two of the last three seasons.

She has, to date, represented the Hinds in 5 Hallyburton Johnston Shield (List A), and 16 SuperSmash (T20) matches, and was part of the New Zealand Development team that played against India and the West Indies. This summer (2023/24), she has also featured against Pakistan for a New Zealand XI, and was a stand-out for the New Zealand Maori Women in the Women's T20 Pacific Cup. Off the field, Bartlett is a keen, and practicing coach with YEAH! girls coaching qualifications. She is a Smash Play Youth Ambassador which helps to promote cricket, and make the game accessible for youngsters.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming both Joshua and Ocean to club when they arrive in April and we wish them every success on and off the pitch!
