Raby Sports Complex will host a feast of T20 cricket this Sunday.

If you enjoy T20, the newest form of cricket, get down to Raby Sports Complex this Sunday to catch a feast of the short form of the game.

Eight clubs, including hosts Campbelltown Camden Ghosts, will slug it out in Sydney Premier Cricket’s T/20 competition.

Raby 1 will host the Ghosts men’s first grade team, which will play a morning and afternoon T/20 match against Northern District and Parramatta

Ghosts women’s first grade will host St George – Sutherland in the morning and Bankstown in the afternoon match at Raby II

Raby 3 will be the venue for Penrith women’s first grade match with Bankstown (morning) and St George -Sutherland (afternoon).

Last Sunday in the Kingsgrove Sports Twenty20 Cup, the Ghosts took on Blacktown at Joe McAleer Oval and after winning the toss and batting, the Ghosts posted 9/122 from their 20 overs.

After losing Nick Carruthers early, Ash Paddison (26), Aaron Yabsley (27), and Jayden Simmons (19) steadied the ship before losing wickets regularly.

Blacktown passed the Ghosts otal in the 18th over having lost five wickets.

The previous day in grade was not one to write home about for the Ghosts – all five grades were beaten by Parramatta in the Round 6 clashes and the club will be looking for much better performances against Hawkesbury in the next round of matches.

♦ At Old Kings, Parramatta resumed at 2/92 chasing the Ghosts first grade total of just 206.

The Ghosts bowlers toiled hard with Monty Panesar taking his second wicket with the score at 151.

The English import managed to snare four wickets as Parramatta decided to bat on after passing the Ghosts total.

♦ In second grade, the Ghosts bowlers had a difficult day defending their total of 278.

Resuming at 0/32, the Parramatta side wasted no time in going after the target, reaching it for the loss of three wickets.

♦ At Merrylands, third grade started the day 1/10 in their attempt to chase down Parramatta’s total of 268 but only managed 166.

♦ In fourth grade down on Raby 3, Parramatta declared at their overnight score, 94 runs in front of the Ghosts and were asked to bat again.

In their second innings, the Ghosts were better but were bowled out for 169. Parramatta secured the required runs for an outright win for the loss of only two wickets.

♦ Fifth grade was a nail biter, with the Ghosts boys fell short by one run chasing Parramatta’s 131.

Young opening bowler Jarrod Tripp nearly pulled the run chase off, scoring 24 not out, with Adam Denniss (27) and Jesse Kennedy (19) also contributing to the run chase.

This Saturday the Ghosts travel to Richmond to take on Hawkesbury in first, third and fifth grade, while second and fourth teams will be home at Raby.
