Association cans cricket in Bundy this weekend

CRICKET: Heavy rainfall in Bundaberg over the past few days has forced all cricket to be cancelled for this weekend.

The Bundaberg Cricket Association made the decision yesterday, saying on its Facebook page that Mother Nature had convened against cricket again.

BCA president John Howard said with more than 100mm falling on Salter Oval in the past few days, the ground wasn't going to dry out in time for today's action.

With Kendalls Flat also receiving similar rainfall, the alternative option also couldn't be used.

It means no matches in juniors and senior will be held this weekend.

In Division 1, Norths were scheduled to face Past Highs with Brothers to take on The Waves.

The cancellation now ends all one-day and two-day cricket for the year.

Next week the T20 competition will start in division 1 with Friday night cricket returning when The Waves take on Brothers.

The T20 competition will be held until early next year when the finalists will be decided in the first week of January.

In other news the date for the NewsMail Cup has been finalised with the first piece of silverware to be officially played for on December 16.

In division 1 the final will be a day-nighter to be held at Salter Oval with North to take on The Waves in the decider.
