it's indoors, and it's in New Zealand, Action Indoor Sports Stadiums has it
The day's competition began with Australia Over 35 Men recording a big win over the noticeably improving Sri Lankans. Sri Lanka have one more game tonight, one last opportunity for us all to watch the new kids on the block. A nicer bunch of blokes you'd be hard to find, and the exciting thing is, they're here to stay.
With another couple of top-level competitions under their belts, and these guys are going to make a lot of people sit up and take notice. Mark my words, this is a team of the near future.
The second game saw an upset--highly fancied South Africa going down to the England Over 35 Men. England have kept their finals hopes alive with this one, and this evenings games have taken on a real edge now. Don't touch that dial!
And now . . . . .
The first final--the
19&Under Girls, New Zealand v Australia. The winner goes into the
Grand Final against South Africa.
And it's underway--in front of a large and very vocal crowd, New Zealand have restricted the Australians to 95. The New Zealand innings is just beginning.
And now it's ended . . . New Zealand win yet another fine, close game and advance to the Grand Final where they meet South Africa.
The Over 35 Men
finish their qualifying games tonight. South Africa play Sri Lanka,
and England take on New Zealand. The points are such that England can
still make the finals.
South Africa defeated the very popular Sri Lankans 141 to 47. And New Zealand defeated England, 139 to 35.
So it's goodbye to Sri Lanka and England, and New Zealand v South Africa in tomorrow's Semi-Final.
