Cav's pace attack is the key
THE Casino Cavaliers will put their unbeaten 40-overs-a-side record on the line against South Tweed Colts in the Far North Coast LJ Hooker League cricket one-day final tomorrow.
The Cavaliers defeated Colts in a two-day match when they met earlier this season, but now that South Tweed is all but out of the race for a finals spot in the longer version of the game, they could prove a bogey.
The final, to be played at Oakes Oval, Lismore, is sure to be an intense affair with the Cavaliers to roll out their all-conquering four-pronged pace battery comprising Mark Mison, Wade Sweeney, Al Nowlan and Brendan Maguire against Colts’ strong top-order batting.
Paul Dillon hit 53 for South Tweed when the sides met last and he was well supported by Matthew Shean, who made 42.
While Casino are in raging form heading into the match, South Tweed Colts have won two and lost two of their past four, which has seen them slip from contention in the race for the two-day semi-finals.
