Randwick Petersham has won a place in the Kingsgrove Sports Twenty20 Cup Grand Final following an outstanding win over Manly-Warringah yesterday at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Sydney University is the other contestant in the big match as a result of their win over Northern District in an earlier match yesterday.


The Grand Final was scheduled to be played under lights last night at the famous ground but a major storm which continued for a couple of hours put paid to that. The Grand Final will now be played at COOGEE OVAL on SUNDAY 29 NOVEMBER at 2.30 pm. The will be a HUGE day for the club and its members and supporters and we want as many at the ground as possible to cheer home our boys. Please PUT THIS DATE IN YOUR DIARY!
In yesterday’s game Randwick Petersham 6-146 (20 overs) defeated Manly-Warringah 6-134 (20 overs).


Spin bowlers usually provide the crowd entertainment in T20 matches with batsmen relishing the opportunity of taking the long handle to them. Not so in this match with Randwick Petersham’s Soumil Chhibber bowling an almost unplayable spell to destroy the Manly middle-order. He took 2-11 off 4 overs as last year’s Belvidere Cup champions fell further and further behind the required run rate. Fast man Sam Doggett was also impressive knocking over Manly’s two big guns Lenton and J Crosthwaite with just 33 on the board. And when Adam Semple (2-31 off 4) put away Adam Crosthwaite and Dukoski it was all over for the Sea Eagles.


Earlier Semple and Nathan Price had got the side away to a flyer with 27 off the first two overs forcing a double bowling change. And while Price (25 off 17 balls with 4 fours and a six) and Alex Kemp (33 off 26 with 3 fours and a six) headed the run-scoring the other top five got runs in the teens to ensure the score kept ticking over. The final total of 146 was always going to be a tough chase and so it proved to be with Randwick Petersham cementing a place in the Grand Final against Sydney University. This will be the third Grand Final for the club in this competition and we will be going for our third win.
