Brothers out to remain unbeaten

By GLEN PORTEOUSglenp@gladstoneobserver.com.au

GLADSTONE cricketers are looking to get the season back into swing.

Following weeks' of rain interruptions, all four teams will be keen to roll the arm over and have a tonk this weekend.

With clear skies predicted, the cricketers will be enthusiastic to get bat on ball and wield the willow.

In the first game, Brothers play BITS in what will be an exciting battle for all important competition points.

These two are meeting at BITS Oval for a two-day game. The last time they met, Brothers just pipped BITS with a last wicket victory. The gripping win for Brothers has helped to keep them undefeated.

Brothers captain Pat Laws said he was happy with his team's performance and would like to keep the victories coming.

Laws also said that even though his team was undefeated, they had not yet played Calliope and Yaralla.

"We have been training hard and the results are starting to show for us,'' Laws said.

BITS however, will be keen to make amends for their loss against Brothers and get a much needed victory under their belt.

Left hander Lucas Hall will pose the biggest danger for BITS with the bat and George Kiss with the ball against Brothers.

In the second game, The Glen and Calliope go head to head in what will be an exciting day/night game.

The two teams will be hungry in their pursuit of competition points.

In what will be an evenly balanced match, it will also prove to be a good game for spectators to watch.

The game will be played at Clinton Oval in a 50-over format, beginning at 2pm and finishing at 9.30pm. Yaralla has the bye.
