Gympie's big bash

TONIGHT's big bash final at Albert Park is set to be a block buster according to Gympie cricket officials.

Current one day cricket premiers Harlequins will be looking to knock over Valleys under lights at Albert Park.

Harlequins are the favourites to take their second title of the summer in their 60th year as a club.

Captain Dean Chandler said his team was confident after wining the one day final over Wests but said the y were wary of valleys in the Twenty20.

"It should be a tough game," Chandler said.

"Valleys won both their Twenty20 matches and we won both of ours."

Wests and Harlequins never played because the match got washed out.

He said the plan was to just go out and have a bit of fun and hope to get another win.

Michael Walsh and John McClintock are predicted to lead the batting for the Quins but McClintock is under a cloud because of injury.

Chandler said the big hitting bat fell over last week and injured himself.

"We are just waiting to see how he is," Chandler said.

He said Harlequins would need about 140-150 to be competitive in the game.

Play gets underway at Albert Park at 6pm tonight after club games.
