Brothers fight for T20 trophy
THEY know each other's games well after a lifetime of backyard cricket. Tonight, the Brady and Chandler boys will take that rivalry on to Albert Park.
The four will play in the Twenty20 blockbuster between the Gympie Off-road Gold XI and Gympie Cricket All-stars.
Steve Brady will captain the Gold while his brother Glen will play for the All-stars.
Dean Chandler will captain the All-stars his brother Travis will play for the Gold.
The boys are all confident and think their respective teams deserve favourite status to win the DJ Roly Shield.
The Gold has won the shield twice and the All-stars once.
Brady expects a great contest on Albert Park and urges cricket fans to get on board and come down to watch some great cricket.
He said the Gold XI would win but the All-stars had a great side.
"It will be a very good contest," Brady said.
"Both teams have got good sides, it should come down to the wire."
He rated his brother and Chandler as danger men with the ball.
With the bat he rated Neil McKean, Shay Bosworth and Chris Darrach as players to watch.
"The whole team can hit a cricket ball," Brady said.
He said Gold's advantage was they were playing cricket during the day.
He said a lot of the All-stars would be watching them play from the comforts of the bar.
"They will spend the day drinking," Brady laughed.
Dean Chandler hit back saying the Gold boys would be too tired to play cricket after playing all day.
"We will be right on the night," Chandler said.
Chandler said the winning team would be the one that could take their chances in the field.
"Whoever can take the catches will win the match," he said.
One thing rival sets of brothers could agree on was it was going to be a great match with plenty of big hitting.
They urged all Gympie Cricket fans to get down to Albert Park at 6.30pm to watch.
"There's nothing else on in Gympie, so we are expecting everyone to come along and a big crowd," Chandler said.
Both teams have got good sides, it should come down to the wire.
