Every ball will count when Fraser Coast cricket returns

CRICKET: Round robin games where every ball counts could transform the Fraser Coast's Twenty20 competitions into an exhibition of smash and crash cricket.

The A- and reserve grade short form seasons were set to start earlier this month but fixtures were washed out for two straight weeks - the equivalent of four games per team.

While just one day of the regular season left, to be played on January 5, before the finals, Fraser Coast cricketers will channel their inner Big Bash League star to put their team into the decider.

Wins are always vital, but every ball will count in the shortened season with net run rate expected to play a role in determining the table.

The top three-finishing teams will progress to the January 12 finals.

Second will face third at noon, with the winner to take on the round robin table-topped at 3pm.
