Excitement is buzzing ahead of the NT Strike League opening round on Sunday 1 July 2018 at Marrara Cricket Ground in Darwin.  Entry is FREE and there is plenty of shade, refreshments, food and drinks including burgers and smoothies available for purchase at the ground.  Come and make a day of it.


The Strike League features our local Darwin and Districts players, emerging talent from Alice Springs and Darwin region, our NT Pathway players as well first class players from interstate and overseas.  It's a great opportunity for our local players to develop and experience another level of cricket and intensity.  

This coming Sunday, several marquee players will debut, while others return for the second year.  Cameron Bancroft and Alex Ross line up for the Desert Blaze.  Will Bosisto will play with the Southern Storm, while marquee player Sam Truloff, fresh off a double hundred last weekend, will boost the Northern Tide.  The Tide meets the reigning champions, the City Cyclones, in the first game and the Cyclones are bound to throw the ball to Aaron Summers and look to Brad Schmulian, last year's Weise Medallist, to be amongst the runs.

T20 Games start at 10am with two games being played simultaneously.   After a break for lunch, the second round of T20 games gets underway at 2pm. 

  • 10am  T20   Northern Tide  v  City Cyclones
