Cricket: Green Island, NEV in T20 club final

Green Island will play North East Valley in the final of the club twenty/20 tournament at Sunnyvale tonight.

The round-robin games were held during the holiday period and only four clubs took up the opportunity to enter the tournament.

Albion and Kaikorai were the other teams.

For inspiration, Green Island will look to the experienced trio Ant Harris, Mark Joyceand Russell Ritchie.

With medium-pacer Dion Lobb suspended for one match for dissent, Ritchie will be a key man in the bowling line-up and Harris and Joyce are both dangerous ball strikers.

The Murley brothers, Simon and Jamie, will attack with the ball for North East Valley, and hard-hitting right-hander Lance Taylor is an obvious threat with the bat.

Cameron Beel has also helped Valley reach the final with some strong batting.
