Bulls charge at Twenty20

CARDINIA will attempt to win a remarkable fourth consecutive Twenty20 title when it meets Kooweerup in the Kookaburra Cup final at Pakenham Upper-Toomuc on Sunday.
The Bulls boast an imposing 17-1 win-loss record in the four Kookaburra Cup tournaments it has contested and their prowess in this format of the game was on full show as they reached the semi-finals of the Victoria wide Twenty20 competition.
Cardinia reached this year’s final following an impressive 60-run win over Tooradin in their semi-final.
The Bulls have plenty of firepower at the top of their batting order with Country Week skipper Mark Cooper, Ben Darose and round-13 centurion Steve Patterson, but it has been guest player Neil Barfuss that has lead the way with the bat with 189 runs in his three innings so far.
Kooweerup, a finalist in 2007/08, was equally impressive in their semi-final, defeating Merinda Park by 56 runs.
As has been the case throughout the tournament, Kooweerup’s win was set up by openers Michael Giles and guest player Sam Miller.
The pair both posted half centuries in their 103-run partnership as the Demons posted a massive 9/210 off their 20 overs.
A big day is planned at PUT with prizes for hitting signs and crowd catches, while a mystery DJ will ensure a lively atmosphere.
The day kicks off at 11am with an under-17s curtain raiser between WGCA North and South representative sides, with the main game starting at 2pm.
