For those of us who marvelled at Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni’s successful 300 run chase against Australia two nights ago in Adelaide would have been enthralled by Sydenham’s T20 match against OBC at Sydenham on Thursday night – the Sydenham chase might have been a bit shorter, but the final over excitement was on another level again.
Although the womens grades are progressively back over next couple of weeks, and the Youth boys not until late January/early Feb, the mens adult grades all recommenced after the holiday break with the morning grades all involved in two double header T20 matches each.

It was a successful return to the two-day competition for the Prem Men with a comprehensive victory over OBC, but the 2nds unfortunately narrowly lost the One-day final, and most results in the T20 and lower grades were also losses.
The two-day competition resumed on Saturday as the Prem men took on OBC at Elmwood Park. Another distinctly green looking wicket saw Sydenham win the toss and not hesitate to ask OBC to bat.
