POW honours for Hornets opener

HORNETS opener Daniel Wilson's blistering start to the season has not gone unnoticed.

The 33 year-old was named Queensland Premier Cricket's Player of the Week.

Wilson started the limited overs season with 117 runs opening the batting against Valleys. He backed that performance up with a week-leading 161 from just 131 balls against Northern Suburbs at the weekend.

That century was his third-consecutive in Brisbane Premier Cricket fixtures, following his 132 run innings in the final round of the 2016/17 season.

Despite Wilson's fast start, the Hornets have struggled as a unit up against the traditionally dominant one-day sides.

Wilson's run at four consecutive 100 plus scores will face its biggest test of the season on Saturday, up against University bowler Scott Walter. Walter has been one of the most consistent players with ball in-hand for the past few years.

The Hornets then host Sandgate at Baxter Oval on Sunday.
