Toowoomba Dragons and the Victoria Point Vipers were the winners in their respective men’s and women’s South-East Queensland division live streamed 2017 Beastwear National Indoor Cricket League - National Match of the Day games last weekend.
In the men’s match, the Dragons won by four runs over the Toombul Tigers in a low-scoring affair.
The Tigers batted first and posted 52, with three wickets in the final over of their innings putting the brakes on.
In reply, the Dragons started positively with a 22-run pair, and with four overs to go, required just four runs to win.
It went right down to the wire, with a Brodie Claews five in the final over the difference, as the Dragons finished on 56.
In the women’s match, Brisbane Heat WBBL player Kara Sutherland featured for the Toombul Tigers, however it was the Vipers who claimed the win.
The Tigers batted first, posting 67 runs, which the Dragons chased down with a big 32-run final pair between Meagan Dixon (18 runs) and Shaq Friske (14 runs).
Around the country, and in the South Australia women’s division Stepney Devils defeated Stepney United by the smallest of margins, while the Stepney Steelers defeated the Thunder by three runs.
