DDSWQ looks to continue Taverner's form

CRICKET: A strong showing against South Brisbane has the tails of the Darling Downs SWQ side up in the Lord Taverner's competition.

The U16s squad pulled out one of the more memorable wins in competition history last weekend.

Finding themselves under the pump at 6-58 chasing 198 for victory, an incredible 140-run partnership lifted them to a win with four overs to spare.

Tom Sippel (62*) and Michael Weldon (59*) led the way when the chips were down, combining for seven boundaries in the memorable performance.

The team will again have to lift tomorrow to improve their record to 2-1 when they take on Ipswich/Logan at Baxter Oval, Ipswich.

Similar to DDSWQ, Ipswich/Logan has enjoyed a mixed start to the season with a win and a loss from its opening two games.

DDSWQ will rely on the attack of Joseph Fry, Jem Ryan and Paul Draheim to try and restrict the home side with the bat.

Fry leads the team with four wickets for the season, while Ryan had a strong outing last week (3-32) and Draheim was as consistent as ever against South Brisbane (0-23 off 10 overs).

Play commences at 9.30am tomorrow.
