Fal­cons take the T20 ti­tle

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Four Mile Fal­cons have won the fourth sea­son of the Mud­dies T20 Big Bash with a com­fort­able win over the B Team.

The Fal­cons were red hot favourites to take out the grand fi­nal af­ter strolling through the sea­son un­de­feated but the B Team had fin­ished the sea­son with a flurry and were wor­thy op­po­nents of the mi­nor pre­miers.

The Fal­cons bat­ted first with all mak­ing a con­tri­bu­tion with Young (16) and Maw­son (22) adding valu­able runs to stand­outs Pete Bury 32no and Max Pe­track 31 who pushed the Fal­cons to a very com­pet­i­tive 149.

Mick Bruin was the stand­out bowler for the B Team tak­ing an im­pres­sive 3 for 12 off his two overs.

The B Team needed to en­sure that they didn’t get bogged down early in their in­nings to keep the run rate in check but the Fal­cons bowlers gave no free de­liv­er­ies and kept open­ers Mark Barnes(16) and Ben Shrimp­ton tied down, Shrimp­ton mak­ing a run-a-ball 31no to place pres­sure on the Fal­cons.

The Fal­cons con­tin­ued to bowl well through the in­nings, Travis Gooch(27) and Mick Buin(15), adding some re­spectabil­ity to the B Team score, fin­ish­ing at 3 for 105 in a dis­ap­point­ing chase. Weary Vet­tori was the pick of the Fal­cons bowlers tak­ing 1 for 3 off his 2 overs.

The T20 comp was another great suc­cess with 7 teams tak­ing part this sea­son.

The Mud­dies Cricket Club would like to thank all the play­ers and vol­un­teers for their con­tri­bu­tion through­out the 2016 sea­son and hope to see ev­ery­one run­ning around the park next year.
