After two days of wet conditions putting a dampener on the 27th Imparja Cup, play was able to commence at 8am Monday morning.
In the eight team Major Centres Division, Katherine Scorchers took out the first game of the day with a comfortable win over Tennant Creek. The Scorchers then continued their winning form defeating the Central Hurricanes for a perfect record on the first day of play. Desert Eagles also registered two wins defeating All Sorts and Tennant Creek. Tennant Creek, All Sorts, Alice Springs and Top End Thunder ended the day winless with Central Hurricanes registering one win and one loss.
The 10 team Men’s Community Division was a great show of community cricket bringing people together. An enjoyable day was had by all teams and tomorrow’s full fixture is sure to bring more 6’s and wickets.
The Women’s Community Division was played under lights at Flynn Drive, with Tennant Creek Ladies and Solid Sisterz getting the ball rolling for the women. Tennant Creek were victorious, defeating Solid Sisterzs by 73 runs while the Ladeez defeated Central Desert by 8 wickets.
Play commences at 8am today for the Major Centres Division, 9am for the Men’s Community and the Women’s Community Division games will be again held under lights from 6pm.
