A-grade teams fight for final spot

THE Gympie Cricket Association A-grade one-day final is being held tomorrow but it's still unclear just which teams will be taking part.

Gympie Cricket Association spokesperson Peter Kross said today's final one-day matches would determine who would be taking part.

“It's an open book at this stage,” he said.

“Any team has a realistic chance of making the final, so it will just come down to how things go in this round.”

It was originally thought Harlequins had booked a place in the final due to a draw last week.

However, a clerical error has since revealed a bonus point has re-shuffled the standings on the ladder.

Presently, Harlequins are leading the one-day table on 15 points, followed by Wests on 13 points.

The last two positions are assumed by Valleys on 11 points and Colts on eight points.

Colts may seem out of the race on first appearance, but Kross says the team still has plenty to play for.

“Colts can still make the final,” he said.

“They would need a few results to go their way and some bonus points, but it's not something that is impossible.”

The open nature of this year's one-day competition is a first in recent years.

“The last few years there has been one side that has really dominated,” Kross said.

“This year, that trend has been broken and it's good to see.”

Having many teams in contention for the final has kept weekly competition interesting, both for players and spectators alike.
