Delissa says BITS in top shape to add girls' team

CRICKET: Going by the numbers in Thursday night's girl's come and try in cricket at BITS Oval, there is every chance chance there will be a competition to cater for seven to 12-year-old girls.

And helping the cause, along with to try and also to establish an under-12 girl's team at the BITS Cricket Club, was Brisbane Heat captain Delissa Kimmince.

"There are some pretty good girls here who know how to bowl and bat," Kimmince said.

Also present was regional cricket officer for Capricornia Whitsundays was Joe Marsh and he is hopeful the excellent numbers will prompt a T20 Blast format in November.

"If there are enough girls, then the T20 Blast may hit off on November 17," Marsh said.

"We have had enough on Friday night to play two games because you need 16 girls just to play one game."

Kimmince added there are a lot of positive things that are happening in women's sport especially with cricket and AFL.

"The T20 is a great concept and there's more people who can get involved in the T20 Blast," Kimmince said.

Youngster Tegan Early is on the right track and may well become the next Kimmince.

"To see Delissa was pretty special and I'm hoping to one day play in the Big Bash," 11-year-old Tegan said.

She joins fellow Capricornia representative players Lily Storch, Brooke Sheridan, Charlie Bysby and Caitlyn Judd to play in the state championships in Bundaberg at the end of October.
