Date of Event : Tue Jul 11, 2017 5:30PM

Queensland are in pole position midway through the Open Women’s Division at the 2017 Indoor Cricket National Championships in Mackay.

The host state sits on top of the table with four wins from four matches - and a significant run differential.

Rounding out the top four in the five-team competition are South Australia (five matches, three wins), Victoria (five matches, two wins) and New South Wales (five matches, two wins).

In today’s matches, South Australia fell short against Victoria before bouncing back against Western Australia, while Queensland edged out New South Wales.

Victoria’s 14-run win against South Australia came on the back of an all-round performance from Janelle Hayhurst.

Hayhurst top-scored with 15 in Victoria’s total of 77, before claiming three wickets to restrict South Australia to 63.

Claire Kossi scored 23 runs for New South Wales in their clash against Queensland, before picking up a pair of wickets.

New South Wales posted 76 runs, however Queensland were up to the challenge, finishing on 96 runs.

Dulane Carson scored 22 runs to go with two wickets.

South Australia responded from a morning defeat with a 30-run win against Western Australia.

The South Australians batted first, with Kylie Rattray’s 17 leading her side to a total of 73. 

Western Australia struggled to just seven runs at the midway point of their innings and couldn’t bounce back, finishing up on 43.

Matches continue tomorrow across all five open divisions at the Mackay Indoor Sports Arena.
