Above: Tatts’ Michael Cain finished with an economical 0-3 from four overs in his side’s nine-wicket win against Civeo on Friday evening. That spell included two maidens.
Tatts Cricket Club has qualified for its sixth Narrabri District Cricket Association first grade T20 grand final in the seven-year history of the short format game in Narrabri.
Tatts, which has won the past three T20 grand finals, will have a chance to defend its title on February 2 when it takes on The Western Imperial Razorbacks.
In their first season in the NDCA competition the Razorbacks qualified for the decider by edging out RSL and Civeo on nett run rate.
All three of those teams finished on 16 points following two wins and two losses, while Tatts claimed the minor premiership with three wins and just one loss.
That loss was against the last-placed Crossroads Hotel, which was Crossroads’ only win of the campaign.
There will be a new second grade T20 champion crowned in 2019 after last season’s premiers Civeo failed to qualify for the decider.
2017-18 grand finalists Tatts will have another crack at the title after it finished as this season’s minor premiers following three wins and a loss.
Also finishing on three wins and a loss was RSL.
That saw the RSL’s second XI qualify for its first short format grand final since the 2014-15 season.
