Wet weather mars Frenchville attack

CRICKET: Despite Frenchville's bowling unit running in at the peak of their powers, mother nature ultimately decided their clash with Cap Coast Parkana.

The destructive attack of Charlie Simic, Joe McGahan and Riley McGuire had the away side reeling before spinners Jason Wells and Logan Whitfield finished the tail. Cap Coast were dismissed for a paltry 81.

Eight overs into their chase and Frenchville were cruising at 2-44 when the heavens opened and the match was abandoned.

"I am spewing about the rain, but that's cricket in Central Queensland,” lamented skipper McGahan.

"At one stage it looked like we were going to scrape home but there was lightning and then it bucketed down. So we were pretty unlucky.”

Frenchville have arguable the best attack in the combined competition and the stats back it up.

In their four wins on the bounce, they've only leaked 415 runs.

With 3-26, McGahan said his opening quick Simic was easily the pick on Saturday.

"He was definitely our best. Just a highly accurate bowler,” McGahan who picked up 1-15 himself, praised.

"Not the quickest but swings it well and seams it too. It was a good deck for him.

"Logan and Jason were able to tie down one end and take wickets to wrap up the tail. Our bowling has been unreal at the moment, they are all collectively hitting their straps.”

Not that their batting isn't playing their part either. The Rockhampton A-grade reigning premiers are where they want to be.

"We aren't relying on individual performances. We have a long batting line up and all five strike bowlers doing well.

"It makes for a really good culture around the club right now.”
