T20 Big Bash gets fiery

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

ROUND three of the Mud­dies Big Bash T20 cricket comp saw the IGA Ban­dits con­tinue their big hit­ting ways to dis­patch the Sher­a­ton Five Stars in a well lu­bri­cated and en­ter­tain­ing Fri­day night fix­ture.

The Ban­dits won the toss and set out to dom­i­nate the Five Stars from the out­set.

McLeod and Nicholson hit out with a 68 run open­ing stand scor­ing 33 and 28 re­spec­tively.

Sam also con­trib­uted with a free flow­ing 31, push­ing the Ban­dits to a su­per com­pet­i­tive 160 off 19 overs.

Brad M was the pick of the Sher­a­ton bowlers with 1 for 3 off his 2 overs, with Hamish pick­ing up 1 for 12 (2).

The Five Stars needed to make a strong start to chase down the mas­sive to­tal of the Ban­dits and they started well with Brad (15) and Nathan (13) scor­ing quickly to lay a solid plat­form. Three quick wick­ets saw Barts come to the crease who had a point to prove against the chatty Ban­dits.

The left han­der hit the IGA team to all parts, scor­ing 36 in quick time. The re­main­der of the Five Stars couldn’t hang around with Barts, fall­ing 50 runs short, with 4 overs left to bowl.

This Fri­day will see the red hot Ban­dits take on the B Team Blasters at the Mud Pit from 6.30pm. Come along to what will be great night of big hit­ting.
