CQ side has Gladstone flavour

CRICKET season has already commenced, but the representative cricket is about to get under way in Rockhampton tomorrow.

The Central Queensland line-ups have a real Gladstone flavour with half a dozen players chosen to represent the region.

Mackay travels to Rockhampton to take on CQ tomorrow, and in the open team, The Glen’s captain Dan Williams, and players Matt Inwood and Michael Heymer will feature in the 100-over match.

Even though The Glen suffered a lacklustre defeat last week, the players are looking to bounce back at the higher level.

Due to the recent rain, the ground staff has had little opportunity to prepare the wickets, and Dingle is well aware this will have an effect.

“There will probably be a little bit in it,” Dingle said.

Matt Inwood has been pencilled in for the pivotal number three spot, and his experience playing for Queensland Country and state under-19s will hold him in good stead.

Mitch Inwood, Josh Hall and David Heymer will represent CQ in the under-19s.

“Mitch Inwood is a good leggy and he did okay in the under-17s,” Dingle said.

In a fortnight’s time, CQ plays Townsville and Cairns in Mackay in 50-over matches.
