The NewsMail Cup will be won this week

CRICKET: Rain, hail or sunshine, the NewsMail Cup will be decided this Saturday or Sunday.

The NewsMail Cup finals in division 1, division 2 and division 3 will be held this weekend in the final cricket matches for the Bundaberg Cricket Association for this year.

The Waves face Brothers in the division 1 and division 3 decider with Norths taking on Isis in division 2.

The division 1 and 3 final is on Saturday with division 2 on Sunday if the weather doesn't intervene.

Rain is forecast for both days but not in the same way it was last weekend, which saw more than 20mm fall.

BCA president Ian Grills said if rain forced no play the Cup would be decided another way.

"The teams that finished highest to qualify for the final will win,” he said.

"This means that The Waves would win division 1 and 3 with Norths claiming division 2.”

If rain falls during the match and overs are lost but a game can still be completed to create a result then the Duckworth Lewis system could be used to determine the winner. The finals start at 9.30am for all divisions.
