Twenty20 pits grand fi­nal­ists

South Western Times - - Sport -

The Bun­bury and Dis­tricts Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion re­verts to T20 this week­end, with two rounds of fix­tures held on Satur­day.

An in­trigu­ing bat­tle looms early in the morn­ing be­tween last year’s grand fi­nal­ists Ea­ton and Colts, who will go head to head at the Ea­ton Sports Ground.

Both sides have am­ple hit­ting power and who­ever wins the toss will be keen to set a de­fend­able tar­get.

For the Beavers, James Hillery and Cory Fitt will be ex­pected to lead from the front, given their re­cent form.

Colts, who are reign­ing T20 pre­miers, were un­beaten in the short­ened form last sea­son and opened the new cam­paign with an eightwicket win over Hay Park on Novem­ber 17.

Aside from the Good­win duo, they will look to Lee Sor­fleet for their runs.

At For­rest Park North, Marist en­ter­tain Leschenault. Both opened their T20 ac­counts with a vic­tory in round one.

The Blues, who were vic­to­ri­ous away to Da­lyellup Beach, en­joyed starts from all of their open­ers – while the Green Caps rolled the Beavers for 123 and snuck home with vic­tory in the fi­nal over.

In the re­main­ing morn­ing game, Da­lyellup Beach host Hay Park, be­fore back­ing up later in the af­ter­noon against the Beavers.

The BDCA com­pe­ti­tion will go into re­cess over the fes­tive sea­son, with the first matches of 2019 held on Satur­day, Jan­uary 5.
