Gladstone batsmen reach target in just six overs

GLADSTONE'S Open representative team has sent Callide Valley packing, thumping the visiting side by nine wickets.

The match lasted only a couple of hours, as a hapless Callide Valley batting line-up crumbled for only 65.

It took the Gladstone batsmen only 6.1 overs to overhaul the total in response, taking an early day and a comprehensive victory.

Opening batsman Dylan Cross scored 23 of the 69 runs for Gladstone, and was happy to have had a short day.

"We bowled really good and got them cheaply," Cross said.

"It only took about an hour to bowl them out and we got the runs in about half an hour.

"It was good, I even chipped in with a few runs. I just played my normal game which is quick."

Cross hit two sixes and two fours in his innings to avert any threat of a collapse and shock loss.

The win proves Gladstone has a side with the ability to beat any team in central Queensland.

It took four bowlers only 22.2 overs to rip through Callide Valley, all of them picking up wickets.

Josh Grieving and Daniel Mills nabbed three each and Chad Gilmour two.
