Tony Caccaviello fires in national titles

Gun Horsham Saints bowler Tony Caccaviello snared two wickets to help his Victorian team to gold in the Australian Country Cricket Championships in Toowoomba.

Victoria Country defeated reigning premier Western Australia Country by 49 runs, with Caccaviello finishing with figures of 2-16 in the decider.

Victoria Country batted first, setting a target of 194.

Caccaviello was run out for four but did his most damage with the ball, dismissing opener Aaron Burrage for 17 and making short work of low-order batsman Coen Marwick, who was out for one.
