Harlequins holding on

HARLEQUINS are currently leading the Gympie Cricket Association one-day competition ladder, but its position is under threat.

The team is sitting on 15 points, but Wests are snapping at Harlequins’ heels two points behind.

And today, Harlequins will tackle Valleys at Kosminksi Oval.

Harlequins’ spokesperson Peter Kross said his team had to perform today to ensure a position in the one-day final tomorrow.

“The team is feeling confident, but we definitely have to play well,” he said.

Kross said Harlequins had a clear plan in mind.

“We want to bat first and make around 280 and 300 to put Valleys under pressure,” he said.

“If we can do that, that would be a dream start and give us an early edge.”

Valleys, on the other hand, have been gaining in strength.

Valleys are defending dual premiers, having won the one-day and overall premiership last season.
