Desi Boys and Jungle Patrol claim Super Sixers cricket glory

Jungle Patrol were crowned Social Grade champions for the third consecutive year.

DESI Cricket Club won their second consecutive title and were crowned A-Grade champion at the Annual Innisfail District Cricket Association Super Sixes tournament, after defeating No Ducks Given in the grand final held recently at Goondi Combined Sports Complex.

In the social grade, Jungle Patrol took out the title for the third consecutive year after defeating Wakanderers in an enthralling Grand Final. 

The winning A-grade team and the social division team picked up a share of prize money and individual prizes.

A total of 16 teams took part and featured players from Innisfail, Cairns, Atherton, Tully, and Mission Beach. 

Tournament rules are that every team has six players who all bowl one over each and batsmen retire when they reach 20 runs, with teams in both grades having played five games each before the finals.

The team of Thunderstruck made up of junior players Ashton Vecchio, Lachlan Vella, Jayden Giddins, Callum Scullen, Anthony Spataro, and Thomas Herbert (Captain) did themselves extremely proud up against adult teams and finished third overall.

Ranvir Singh Basra from Desi Cricket Club was named Player of the Carnival in A-Grade. 

The Top A-Grade Batsman was Rhys Camilleri from the Sugar Daddies, with 115 runs, whilst the Top A-Grade Bowler, with 5/48, was Rob Smith from the Sugar Daddies.

Stirling McAvoy was the Player of the Carnival in the social grade with 170 points.

It was a two-way tie for the Best Batsman in the social grade, between Matthew Smart from Jungle Patrol and Stirling McAvoy from Wakanderers, with 84 runs, and the Best Bowler with four wickets was Stirling McAvoy.

Tournament organiser, Dan Bradford was extremely grateful to everyone who supported the event, which is the major annual fundraiser for Innisfail District Cricket Association.

He thanked all the players, spectators, especially all the ladies who worked hard in the canteen, committee members, scorers, umpires, those who prepared the fields and pitches, running the BBQ, setting up, and everyone who contributed to make the day a huge success.
