ND Rebels Yellow ? Zac Hudson-Smith 2 for 6, Luke Flanagan 2 for 7, Harminder Singh 29 runs & 2 for 9, Harmeet Shetra 19 runs.
A great match. Diggers started out shakey with two quick wickets to Singh but the excellent batting by Tim Anderson and Tom Bishop saw Diggers reach a mammoth 173. An awesome display of batting, bowling and fielding by Diggers made the task of seven runs per over beyond the Rebels who have learnt a great deal from the experience.

A good game by all. An excellent partnership from Curtis & Dillon set up the innings for the Breakers. Congratulation on a much tighter bowling performance by the NDR Blues. A good starting knock by S Davey and a quick run blaze by A Mullee wasn't enough to counter good Sawtell bowling.
