Whanganui’s Canadian allrounder Akash Gill named Hawke Cup player of the year

From the Whanganui Chronicle (NZ):-

“Gill, who has played in Whanganui since the 2016-17 summer, and now qualifies as a local player instead of an overseas guest, has benefitted immensely from constant cricket seasons through the Canadian-New Zealand exchange set up by former Cricket Wanganui general manager Dilan Raj.

He has represented the Canada at ICC Under 19 World Cup level and in his last northern summer joined the Edmonton Royals in the Global T20 Canada tournament for July-August, playing alongside the likes of Black Caps Kane Williamson and Jimmy Neesham, along with South African skipper Faf du Plessis in the professional league.

Gill returned to Whanganui after the Global tournament to step up as one of the leading allrounders in the Wanganui XI for their Furlong Cup games against Manawatu, Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa, Taranaki and Horowhenua-Kapiti.”
