SO T20 cricket season gets underway
The South Otago Premier Cricket season kicks off this weekend with the T20 round of play.
The Kai Kings look odds on to retain their T20 crown of last year. They have retained their squad from last season and look very useful.
Both the Milton King Crabs and Owaka Bandits have lost key players for this season so it will be interesting to see how they play.The Waihola Swans are a mixed bag, depending on which side turns up. The Valley Stingers and Clutha Comets brought up the rear of the table last year, but have improved greatly since. Tony Phillips, Blair Benington.
