Do or die for the Storm Chasers or Super Kings

Saturday 23 January 2010 | Published in Regional


Today’s Turtles Domestic Cricket League match is crunch time for the two teams facing off. After losing a game each against Royal Heat, the Storm Chasers and Super Kings will be giving all they have on the field as the winning team will progress through to the final.

On paper, both teams are evenly matched in batting and bowling ability, but Storm Chasers put out the stronger of the two performances against the Royal Heat and showed that they are in form while the Super Kings will need to show more focus at the batting crease if they are to either post or chase a good score.

Super King bowler Campbell Hockin, who has shown a marked increase in bowling speed over the past weeks, will need to bowl well in conjunction with Mamanu ‘king of swing’ Emile if they are to apply early pressure on the star-studded Storm Chasers batting line- up. Storm Chasers bowlers Ben Cummings, John Beasley and Moni Uini must carry through their excellent form into today’s match up if they are to triumph over the Super Kings.

Today’s game will played at the Takitumu Primary School grounds in Matavera starting at 12pm.

This do or die match is going to be action-packed so be there.
