Date of Event : Fri Jun 30, 2017 4:26PM

Bouncer Roos and Seamer Snakes split the honours in their men’s and women’s Western Australia division live streamed 2017 Beastwear National Indoor Cricket League - National Match of the Day games last weekend.

 

 The Snakes got up in the men’s fixture, while the Roos claimed the points in the women’s match.

 

 It was a dominant performance by the Roos’ women, as they dished out a phenomenal 168-run thumping of the Snakes.

 

 Three batting pairs passed 50, with Regina Deleeuw contributing 40 off her own bat, as the Roos piled on 217 runs.

 

 The Snakes had no answers with the ball, and were there restricted to just 49 in reply.

 

 The men’s match was a low-scoring contest, with the Snakes edging out the Roos 63 to 54.

 

 The Roos batted first, and were 42 after their first pair before everything fell apart.

 

 In reply, the Snakes got off to a strong start of their own, sitting just one run behind the Roos at the midway point of their innings.

 

 A negative eight-run stand in the third pair stalled momentum, before they bounced back to seal the win.

 

 In the ACT Division Grand Final, the Wolves claimed the honours with a 17-run win against the SCC Assassins.

 

 The Wolves finished on a total of 88 runs, restricting their opponents to 71, and booking their spot in the finals series in Melbourne later this year to determined the inaugural National Indoor Cricket League champions.

 

 This weekend, the National Indoor Cricket League takes a break, as Australia’s best junior and open-age Indoor cricketers head to Mackay for the 2017 Indoor Cricket National Championships.

 

 Almost 1000 players and officials will be involved in the tournament, which will run from July 2 to July 15.

 

 Thirty matches will be live-streamed via the Cricket Australia Indoor Facebook Page.
