Case half-century guides Railways to first-up Twenty20 win

AN UNBEATEN half century from Nathan Case guided Railways to a commanding nine-wicket win in the Bulldogs' TCI A grade Twenty20 opener against Wests at Heritage Oval.

Both teams have had limited chances to play the shortest form of the game the past two seasons but it didn't show for Railways as they put in an impressive performance on Friday night.

Wests batted first and made 8-105 from their 20 overs as Ben French finished with good figures for Railways with 3-20 from four overs.

The Bulldogs got off to a great start in their run chase as openers Case and Steve Glover put on a near-century first-wicket wicket partnership.

Glover made 33 while Case guided Railways to the dominant nine-wicket victory with an unbeaten innings of 64.

He and Liam Brown (nine not out) brought up the innings runs with 7.2 overs remaining.

The win impressed Railways captain Jeremy Cotter, who watched from the sidelines after just returning to Toowoomba from an overseas holiday.

"It was good to get away with a win there. We've always been better at Twenty20 because it suits our attacking batsmen better," Cotter said.

Railways join University as teams to post wins in the delayed TCI A grade T20 competition, which heats up with a carnival on Sunday.
