Sun­day games resched­uled

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - WDCA CRICKET 2018 - 2019 SEASON -

Con­trast­ing con­di­tions saw rep­re­sen­ta­tive matches on Sun­day resched­uled.

Buln Buln will have to wait un­til Jan­uary 13 for a shot at their first Kook­aburra Cup af­ter Sun­day’s match was aban­doned due to the con­di­tion of the pitch at Mor­well Recre­ation Re­serve.

Formely known as the Premier Cup, the com­pe­ti­tion takes the two most suc­cess­ful teams in one-day cricket from across all Gipp­s­land As­so­ci­a­tions to play off for the brag­ging rights as the best one-day team in Gipp­s­land.

Buln Buln, who fin­ished run­ner up in 2012/13, will be aim­ing to be­come the first Warragul Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion side to take the cup since Trafal­gar, who have since moved to the Latrobe Val­ley com­pe­ti­tion, de­feated Sale-Maf­fra side Bun­dalaguah in 2009/10.

Yarragon could un­of­fi­cially lay claim to 2010/11 ti­tle as the higher qual­i­fier, given their fi­nal against Or­bost was aban­doned with­out a ball be­ing bowled.

Hal­lora (1999/2000) and Drouin (2014/15) are among other lo­cal clubs to have fin­ished run­ner up.

Mor­well will also be shoot­ing for their first Kook­aburra Cup in the de­cider.

Mean­while, the un­der 21 Statewide Cup was also aban­doned due to a soak­ing wicket at Windy Hill.

WDCA crick­eters Sam Whi­b­ley and James Wil­liams are among the Gipp­s­land Pride squad that will con­test the fi­nal, which will be resched­uled to a yet to be de­cided date in Jan­uary.
