Grand final battle today in Warwick A grade cricket

CRICKET: Seeing off Maryvale Condamine paceman Dave Walker will be one of the aims of Wheatvale captain Paul Cantwell in today’s Warwick Cricket Association A-grade grand final from 9.45am.

Cantwell said his side would also need to watch Josh Ryan, who often bowls his left arm pace at the opposite end to Walker.

“We sometimes can be a bit careless against Josh as Dave is so tight,” Cantwell said.

“Our batsmen will also have to work the bowling of Scott McLennan around for three to four runs an over.”

McLennan often concedes less than three runs an over.

Walker said the key would be dismissing the Wheatvale top order.

“We will need to chip away at Brendan Malone to slow his runs and get him out and watch out for Paul Cantwell who is handy in the top order,” he said.

“Their strength is bowling with Paul and Chris Cantwell and the Breen brothers.”

Fielding could be a key in the grand final with Andrew Ryan taking a great catch in the semi final to dismiss Paul Cantwell.
