Will these cricketers dominate the T20 season?

CRICKET: The region's cricketers will enjoy the day off due to washed out games but there's six men who have already proved they will be the danger men when the Twenty20 season starts next week.

Bushrangers batsman Brent Dean is the only A-grade cricketer to have scored a century so far, his unbeaten 133 against Australs a display of strength and power hitting best suited to the explosive 20-over form.

Fellow Bushrangers Josh Lenton and Anthony Eden, along with Past Grammars trio Daniel Beatty, Paul Sanders, and Nick Bennetts are the only A-grade batsmen to score half-centuries this season.

The race for the first T20 century in A-grade is even more tightly contested when you consider the likesof Cavaliers' John Kosmidis, Bushrangers gun Nic Kelsey and Past Grammars' Marty Maloney.

Australs's youngster Sebastien Smith has scored plenty of runs and has the ability to challenge for a milestone innings, while competition newcomer Henry Watter can bat well.

The Fraser Coast cricket competitions have so far been played in a 40-over format.

In A-grade, Past Grammars are clear leaders due to their ability to earn bonus points.

They hold a clear 11-point lead over Bushrangers as they enter the 40-over competition's break, while Cavaliers are just two points further behind.

Tinana leads the reserve grade competition, with a six-point buffer between them and Bay Power. Bushrangers' reserve grade team is one point behind Power, with Mary River Mullets one point adrift.
