Plenty of players in the mix for cricket battle

CRICKET: Round five of the Condamine Cup is sure to bring out the dedicated spectators, as the season kicks into full gear after a few rounds of interupptions.

Last weekend’s bye due to the Warwick Rodeo will ensure players are fresh and ready to play.

President Dave Walker said it should be a competitive round will all sides at full strength.

“If I had to pick a match of the round, it would be the Colts versus Sovereign game on Sunday,” Walker said.

“Sovereign are coming off the back of a good win, while the Colts will be hoping to continue their impressive form in the first half of the competition.”

The Colts will welcome back John Cleary, who had been playing in the Darling Downs Bush Bash league.

“I haven’t played for the Colts since round one, so I’ve been a bit out of the loop,” Cleary said.

“We sort of struck a few weekends off with the a bye and then the Rodeo but hopefully we’ve got some young fellas ready to play.”

Cleary will be a positive boost for the Colts, after taking out the DDBBL leading wicket taker throughout the tournament.

“I took the most wickets in the tournament and I think I ended up with all-round player of the competition,” he said.

The first match of round five will happen on Saturday at 12.30pm between the Redbacks and Maryvale at Slade Park, while Allora and Wheatvale will play in Allora.

Sunday’s game of the round between Colts and Sovereign will start at 10.30am at Slade Park.
