Top T20 talent to build form at Noosa

CRICKET: Noosa is to play host to some of the world’s best female cricketers early next month, in the lead-up to the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup

The Pakistan and West Indies women’s cricket teams will go head to head in a series of T20 practice matches at the Tewantin Noosa Cricket Club at Read Park, Tewantin.

The ground will also be their training venue prior to the World Cup.

Council and Tewantin Noosa Cricket Club has worked closely with the Pakistan and West Indies Cricket Boards for months to bring the elite teams here.

Part of the coaching staff includes West Indian cricket legend Gus Logie, Courtney Walsh and Pakistani cricket veteran Iqbal Imam.

It all kicks off on Wednesday, February 5 with Queensland Cricket providing free kids cricket clinics alongside the players, at Read Park in Tewantin.

The two teams then take to the crease on Friday, February 7 for the first of three T20 sanctioned matches.

On Sunday, February 9, from 1pm will be the second T20 match coupled with a family day with the Master Blasters commencing at 9am

Brisbane Heat and Queensland Cricket will provide pre-game activities from 11am with the match scheduled to commence at 1pm. Car parking will be available at the Noosa District Sports Complex.

Tewantin Noosa Cricket Club president Brett Lea said the big name cricketers would bring in the crowds.

“This is a first for Noosa and our club. To have international, world-class T20 cricketers play live at our venue here in Noosa is just incredible and a big win for our region,” he said.

The third game is scheduled for Tuesday, February 11, from 10am.

The players will attend a Regional Women’s Cricket Lunch at Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort on Saturday, February 9.

This is the only non-free event available to the public.
