Hi all, the Live Stream player is up and our commentary will be starting shortly!
6.21 pmTC -
That’s all she wrote. About 30 runs short. Cromer too good today, they bowled particularly well. The difference were the starts. Cromer raced away at more than 10 an over. While the Plateau stuttered at 22 off the first 6. There just wasn’t enough boundary hitting from there to recover. So no 4th Cup for the Plateau this year, but another good campaign. Good luck to Cromer in the GF.

48 off 3. Singh back into the attack.

11 off that over! Good one for Plateau. Not out of it yet.
5.39 pmTC -
Only 3 off that over. Not enough. 86 to win off 8.

13 off that one. Just what the Dr ordered.
5.33 pmTC -
100 off 10 overs required for Plateau. Brodie and Minnett out there at the moment.
5.28 pmTC -
Finally a boundary! Brodie smashes this one down the ground for 4.
5.20 pmTC -
Jakes been bowled by Singh. Real trouble now for Plateau.
5.09 pmTC -
Jake in now. Huge job to do.
5.08 pmTC -
Bonner on the front foot and tries to slog this down the ground but it’s skied very high up in the air. Mid off takes a good catch and he’s gone.
5.05 pmTC -
Just 1/15 off 4.
5.04 pmTC -
Bonner smacks one into a gap in the off side for a couple.
5.02 pmTC -
Not sure if Brodie forgot it was a free hit… He plays and misses with a defensive shot.

No ball and free hit. Very high that one. Brodie to face the free hit.
5.01 pmTC -
1/9 off 3. This isn’t looking good for Plateau at the moment. They now need 142 to win off 102 balls.
4.59 pmTC -
Dunn miss times a drive straight to mid off and is caught for 4. 1/9 off 2.3

4.51 pmTC -
Just 1 off the first over.. Bit of a mix up too, missed the single off an almost catch.
4.47 pmTC -
Cromer finished on 9/144. A very competitive score on this slow Nolans ground. Plateau missed a trick with that bad start and could have had Cromer under a lot more pressure through that innings. Big job ahead of the Plateau batsmen but we have a long batting lineup.
4.45 pmTC -
Bonner and Dunny to open up.
4.34 pmTC -
Full and there’s an edge past the keeper for one.
4.33 pmTC -

This one’s hit harder over square leg but still just the single.
4.32 pmTC -
Full again but on the legs this time and played out to deep mid wicket for a single.
4.31 pmTC -
Another full ball outside off stump and there’s a swing and a miss. Good stuff!
4.31 pmTC -
Good full ball. Squeezed to square leg for a single

139. Last over. We’re going to go ball for ball. Dunny to bowl it.
4.28 pmTC -

Two consecutive sixes to start Sam’s spell. Cromer have finally doubled their score from the 5th over.
4.08 pmTC -
Jake finishes his spell. He took 2/18 and the score is 97 after 14.

5 overs gone 0/55. Will Hurst on now.
3.22 pmTC -
Plateau getting their lengths all wrong at the moment. Far to many short balls, Kenna dispatches this one over backward point for 4.
3.20 pmTC -
Kenna is dropped again at mid off. This could really sting the Plateau. He follows it up with a 4 through backward square.
3.16 pmTC -
Harry Dunn bowls over 3 and there’s another 6 to Kenna. Great start for Cromer.
3.10 pmTC -
Pricey bowls the 2nd and there’s 13 off this one. Another 6 this time to Plateau tourist Brett Holliday.

Welcome to our Live Blog of what is sure to be a high quality match today. It’s been a rather soggy morning, but the rain has ceased and it looks like play will begin as scheduled this afternoon.
David Le has been down to the ground to inspect the conditions. He says the outfield is fine, pitch is a bit wet but should be good to go by 3pm.
