Masters on show at Baxter

IPSWICH Cricket is geared up for one of the highlight weekends for the season with the celebrity T20 game tomorrow against the Queensland Rail Bulls Masters.

Just follow Brisbane Street out through West Ipswich over the One Mile Bridge and continue on Old Toowoomba Road towards the RAAF base.

The Ivor Marsden Sports complex is on the right.

Come out and see the new facility that provides excellent viewing for the game on Baxter Oval.

The official opening of the new clubhouse by Councillor David Morrison will precede the game.

All children will be admitted free of charge and are welcome to join in the games and coaching clinics, starting at 11am.

There will be lots of giveaways and the young cricketers will have the chance to mingle with the stars of yesterday.

The opening ceremony is at 1pm and the game starts at 2pm.

To add to the spectacle, the game will be played with a white ball, black sight screens, and coloured clothing - Bulls in maroon and Ipswich in gold.

Full bar and catering facilities are available as well as on-ground entertainment.

Security staff has been employed to ensure no alcohol is brought on to the grounds and the consumption of alcohol is within the defined licensed area.

If you are looking for three hours of entertainment tomorrow afternoon, come out and be part of the action.

 

Sticky wicket

IT is almost summer and it had to happen sooner or later.

The rain came and washed out all local cricket fixtures last Saturday.

As a result, all senior fixtures today will be played as one-day games.

In the Stumps Premier League, Northsiders and the Laidley Blue Dogs do battle at Jensen Oval and Centrals and Swifts play at Mark Marsh Oval.

Brothers have claimed a forfeit against Alberton while the Eastern Taipans have the bye.

It is early in the season but the result of the match at Jensen Oval could indicate signs of things to come.

The Blue Dogs proved too strong for the Taipans in the T20 game last Monday night and are showing signs that this could be their year to regain the premiership.

The toss of the coin can often determine the outcome of the game.

Being sent into bat on a rain-affected wicket makes life hard for the batting team.

This was the case last Sunday when the Ipswich teams clashed with Toowoomba in the Webb Shield and Plunkett Cup games.

Ipswich lost the toss in both matches, were sent into bat and battled hard to reach scores that gave them a chance.

But as the wickets dried out, the batting conditions improved and the Pioneers scores were reached with relative ease.

The two losses in the first two games by both sides is not the ideal start to the season and it makes it so important to win the next games.

The Plunkett Cup team will enjoy the home town advantage when it takes on Churches at Baxter Oval on November 25, while the Webb Shield boys have two further weeks off to prepare for their next game against Warehouse at Baxter Oval on December 9.
