A-grade teams brawl for final

GYMPIE A-grade cricket teams are locked in a fierce battle attempting to cement a position in the approaching overall premiership final.

A-grade cricket scorekeeper, Peter Kross, said ahead of last weekend with two rounds remaining a chance at making the final was within reach of all sides.

“Any team can make it, as long as they results go their way,” he said.

It’s an ideal scenario for Gympie Cricket, looking to sign off from the season with a bang.

One full round of two-day matches remains after today, where another thrilling round comes to a close, and a clearer picture will emerge of which teams have the best potential of a finals’ appearance.

Harlequins will resume against Colts while Wests pick up against Valleys.

Wests are on fire at the moment after seemingly being unable to put a foot wrong last weekend against Valleys.

Wests’ bowler Wayne Sleeman launched the offensive with the ball, claiming an impressive six wickets and leaving Valleys reeling to be all out for a meagre 52.

Sleeman’s efforts fired up his team, quickly reaching the total to secure first innings and dropping only three wickets in the process.

With first innings points safety in the bag, Wests will look to continue the aggression today in the hope of enjoying the additional points from an outright victory.

Meanwhile, Colts will be looking at fulfilling the task of defending its score of 164 (declared) against Harlequins.

Harlequins resume on 23 runs with seven wickets safely in hand.
