Colts? mop-up scrutinised



POTTSVILLE officials are expected to meet in the two next days to discuss what they believe was a controversial loss in the Gabba Sporting Goods Cup match game against South Tweed Colts at Fraser Drive on Saturday.

Colts won on a superior run rate after the game was interrupted by rain for three hours according to Pottsville captain Josh Singh.

Rain forced the two teams from the field after Pottsville had bowled 29.3 overs - three balls short of the 30 overs needed to constitute a game.

"Fifteen minutes before the scheduled close of play the field was declared fit for play," Singh said. "We had been off for three hours."

He said the Colts players had used towels to soak up water during the absence from the field to try and get the ground fit enough for the crucial three balls could be bowled. Singh would not comment on whether the club would appeal or not but believed their should be a rule change. Colts finished with 4-137 chasing Pottsville's first innings total of 226.
