Easts like the night life
EASTS will not let the 'relaxed and fun' atmosphere of the Wykes Tyrepower night cricket competition get in the way of claiming a victory over a combined Tucabia-Copmanhurst at McKittrick Park tonight.
Easts will use tonight's match to blood some of its younger players while Tucabia-Copmanhurst will field a mixture of the White and Blue Premier League teams.
Easts captain Doug Harris said his players were looking forward to the novelty of playing under the McKittrick lights, but would not forget to take care of business.
“Winning is the objective, we have to perform,” he said.
“Playing under lights, using the white ball, it's a bit of a novelty.”
Tucabia-Copmanhurst captain Bob McKenzie said he was still unsure of the make-up of his squad, but relished the challenge of facing Easts.
“We are still writing down names ... everyone wants to have a hit and have a bit of fun,” he said.
“We just have to do the little things on the night and hope things go our way.”
