GOING STRONG: Dingee all-rounder Ken Bell

The new-look Northern United Cricket Association Twenty20 competition continues this weekend.

The four-week series started last Saturday, with Calivil, Bagshot, Elmore and Raywood victorious.

The highlight of round one was the thrilling clash between Dingee and Bagshot.

Dingee, last year’s regular season premiers, posted 9-82 off its 20 overs.

Bagshot rallied from a slow start to reel in DIngee’s total in the final over for the loss of six wickets.

Calivil posted the biggest score of the round when it made 9-136 against Goornong. Calivil’s bowlers made light work of Goornong’s batting line-up, dismissing last year’s runners-up for 45.

Raywood impressed in scoring a 10-wicket win over Colbinabbin.

Round two starts on Friday night, with Colbo playing Elmore under lights.

The winner of the Bagshot versus Raywood game will be on track to make the T20 grand final. Dingee should open its account when it travels to Goornong, while Heathcote hosts Calivil.
