Cassowary Coast Cyclones A-grade cricket team fall short of T20 finals

Opening A-grade batsman Stirling McAvoy has been a run scoring machine for the Cassowary Coast Cyclones in the T20 competition.

CASSOWARY Coast Cyclones A-grade Senior Men’s team has fallen just shy of a finals berth in the Cricket Far North T20 competition. 


Last Saturday’s loss to Barron sealed their fate, however the boys should be extremely proud of their efforts, and, with a full team on the paddock, they will be competitive. 


The team now looks ahead to the regular 50-over season, which is scheduled to begin on October 9.


Over the course of the T20 competition, Cyclones A-grade opening batsman Stirling McAvoy has played a few crucial innings.


A stand-out was McAvoy’s 87 (49), followed up by his super over knock with Clint Ratatagia last Saturday at Loder Park, Atherton.


After 20 overs, both teams were tied at 4/166 apiece, and his brother Luke bowled the super over, which went for 17 runs. 


This meant the Cyclones needed 18 runs to win from 6 balls to claim their first win over Atherton as a joint venture, which Stirling McAvoy did in style, scoring 13 runs not out off just three balls faced.
