The annual Big Bash social cricket Super 8’s tournament comes to a conclusion this evening with The Stihl team taking on the Skulls at the Park Sports Ground in Masterton.

The Skulls have been finalists in the annual competition, since its inception in 2011, and start as the favourites but the Stihl team produced a grand performance on their way to making the final last week in what was effectively a semi final match.

The Big Bash concept was introduced to try and get involvement from local adults who are interested in playing cricket but don’t have the time to commit on the weekends.

Due to the demand for social cricket next season will see competitions both pre and post Christmas.
