Wild storm strikes city Twenty20 play
WILD weather has made its mark on the Rockhampton Cricket Association's inaugural Twenty20 competition.
The CQU Tigers and Gracemere clash was abandoned at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds due to Sunday night's storm.
Chasing the Tigers' 139-run target, Gracemere was 5/39 when the lights went out in the 9th over.
After a lengthy discussion, match officials eventually declared the game a draw.
Exciting junior Tom Iles was the main destroyer for the Tigers, making a run-out before claiming 2/15 (3 overs) in his comeback appearance.
Ray Doherty top-scored with 64 runs in the Tigers' innings of 6/138 (20 overs) while Mick Harth and Ray Johnston collected three wickets apiece for Gracemere.
In the earlier match, Cap Coast scored a two-wicket win over Bluebirds.
St Brendan's College rugby league star Zac Moss hit the winning runs to guide the Coast to 8/71 in the 15th over.
Bluebirds was all-out for 70 after losing four wickets in the opening four overs.
