Hervey Bay junior cricketers end the year with a Big Bash

IF YOU wind the clock back five years you would never have associated dance music with cricket.

Since the boom of Twenty20 it has been a different story, and the format has filtered through to the youngest age groups.

Hervey Bay Cricket Association's under-8s and U10s got to experience the modified game in its full glory this year to great success, which finished last week with a visit from Brisbane Heat reps.

The MILO in2cricket and T20 Blast formats proved so popular HBCA will run another eight-week program next month.

Players involved in the initial season will be able to return free of charge when it restarts on January 29.

New participants will have to register for $99, which includes the eight-week program and a Big Bash kit.

Interested players can contact Hervey Bay Cricket Association through their Facebook page for more information.
