There have been a number of exciting T20 matches this season and tomorrow’s clash promises to be no exception. Both sides played amazing cricket in the semi-finals last Sunday, to make the Preliminary Final. Randwick Petersham got there with a flurry of sixes and just four balls to spare against St George after being 6-82 chasing 144. University made the play-off in even more spectacular fashion. Playing division leaders, Mosman at Allan Border Oval, Uni. needed seven to win off the final over with four wickets left. But a hat-trick to Mosman fast bowler Jake Turner saw former Randy Pete, Hayden McLean, on strike with six needed off one ball. And he did it! With a single blow Uni. won the match by one run!

With matches like those two, you can’t afford to miss all the action from Coogee tomorrow!!  If you can’t get there, the match will be streamed through this link:
