T20 poised to blast off in Lockyer Valley

JUNIOR cricketers will be descending on the Cahill Park cricket pitches today for the launch of the Lockyer Cricket Association's T20 Blast season.

The Lockyer Cricket Association will be hosting the Milo T20 Blast competition from Monday, January 19, through until Monday, March 9, at the Cahill Park complex.

The competition will run from 5.30pm to 7pm.

Blast organiser Hilton Hoger said the T20 Blast will give every participant the chance to bat, bowl and field, as well as take part in skill sessions with qualified coaches.

"We know how popular T20 is, with the Big Bash an especially popular form of the game, and we are keen to give that experience to local junior cricket fans," Mr Hoger said.

With all equipment supplied, players just need to turn up and join in, Mr Hoger said, making it attractive for juniors who have never played, but who would like to get involved.

Games last up to 90 minutes, to prevent players getting worn out as they first take to the pitch, with modified T20 rules making the game fun for all participants.

As part of the sign-on package, every player also gets a Milo T20 Blast 'player pack' with a Brisbane Heat bag, cap and shirt, plus other giveaways.
