CRICKET: Avatar Cricket Club is hopeful their emergent momentum will bring success in the opening round of the Frenchville Sports Club Twenty20 Competition.

The newly established Avatar club will make their debut appearance in the annual contest playing in the second division which kick starts three weeks of hit and giggle cricket tomorrow (Saturday).

Like most other teams, Avatar's contingent were anticipating some fast-paced, big-hitting cricket while playing the shortest form of the game.

"We are really looking forward to this competition. We have been doing well in the Rockhampton Cricket third grade competition - we have won the last six games convincingly, so hopefully we can take that momentum into this T20 challenge," Avatar president and player Dhamodharan Raman said.

It will be no easy task facing Cap Coast in the opening round of the competition tomorrow at Rockhampton Cricket Ground.

Cap Coast missed out on winning a consecutive second division title last year after they lost the final to Brothers. Before that Cap Coast did not drop a game in two years of the competition.

Meanwhile, corporate teams start their T20 campiagn this weekend, with defending champions Back on Track Eagles returning to see if they can swoop on another title, while Frenchville will defend their premier division title when their matches get underway on January 11.
