T20 Finals

On December 6, 2nd and 4th grade took part in T20 grand finals, both against Wests.

4th grade were sent in by Wests, but some steady batting throughout the innings took them to a total of 4/131 after their 20 overs. After being tied down in the powerplay, the Wests batters were unable to challenge, being bowled out in the 18th over for only 74, giving Queanbeyan its first silverware of the year.

2nd grade were set 151 to chase by Wests. Unfortunately, Queanbeyan were unable to gain momentum throughout the innings losing consistent wickets, including 4 run outs. They were bowled out for 133 in the last over, falling 18 runs short.

Congratulations to 4th grade and hopefully 2nd grade will be able to get some revenge in the one-day and two-day competitions.
