Centrals lead charge in Twenty20 competition

CENTRAL Districts have moved to the top of the Ipswich Logan Premier League Twenty20 ladder following a win over Swifts on Monday.

Centrals, featuring Brisbane Wests players Sam Truloff (30) and Adam O'Sullivan (25), chased down Swifts' 5-125 with two balls to spare at Mark Marsh Oval.

It takes them to three wins from four games with a game in hand over joint leaders Northsiders.

Apart from the imports, Centrals were best served with the bat by in-form middle-order spin bowling all-rounder Luke Barrett.

Barrett's top score of 38 not out followed a half-century in a one-day game on Saturday.

For Swifts, Matt Fay had starred with the bat, making 29 not out.

For Centrals, the wickets were shared around.

Fast bowler Sean Lutter missed out, going for 0-24 from his three overs, but he is thoroughly enjoying the Twenty20 competition.

"I like the intensity," the Boonah product said.

"They're good fun.

"We've got a lot of Twenty20 players in our team."

Particularly when they've got Truloff and O'Sullivan to call on.

"Just the knowledge they have about the game is invaluable," Lutter said.

Centrals were confident chasing 125 but it didn't start well, with opener Jason O'Sullivan and first drop Rowan Lutter going for one apiece, dismissed by spinner Luke Smith.

"We were pretty happy with their score," Sean Lutter said.

"The grass was really long in the outfield.

"The track was really low and (Smith) darts them in."

Fortunately Centrals had the middle-order to get the job done.

"It was only when Lukey Barrett came in we started to score a few runs," Sean said.

Though it wasn't Lutter's best night with the ball, he is confident he will learn from it.

"I just bowled a few loose balls probably too often," he said.

"The deck was really slow."
