If you want to see some great live cricket, come on down to Tony Ireland Stadium tonight as Saints play Wanderers.
Saints top the ladder in the Gabba Sporting Products T20 competition this season. They’ve won all 4 of their matches, and a win tonight would guarantee a spot in the finals. Wanderers are still in contention for a semi-final spot should they have a good win.
The match starts at 6.30pm.
The next match in the Gabba Sporting Products T20 competition sees Norths and Brothers play their second game under lights this season. Both teams are coming off losses in the previous match, and will be keen to notch up a win.
All senior matches this weekend are one dayers, and finally there are clouds in the skies. We are now at the time that rain may interrupt play, so captains, umpires and scorers need to be aware that we are using the Duckworth Lewis method for calculating target scores in rain interrupted matches this season.
If you haven’t already done so, captains should download the Duckworth Lewis calculator app (Tarams Inc) for iPhone or Android from the links below.
T20 cricket returns to Friday nights with Subs playing Norths in the Gabba Sporting Products T20 competition. The game starts at 6.30pm at Tony Ireland Stadium. While our A Grade cricketers of today are facing off inside the stadium, our T20 Blast kids will be having fun on Lamont Oval at Riverway under lights. Head down to the stadium for a great night of cricket.
