All four teams in the ACT Pool remain in contention for the fourth and final spot in the Men’s T20 Plan B Regional Bash Finals at the SCG on Australia Day.
This Sunday in Canberra marks the final two rounds before Finals Day early next year with the ACT Aces and Border Bullets currently equal first in the pool after both registered wins last weekend.
The top team in the ACT Pool will meet the Central West Wranglers in the Thunder Conference Final on 26 January with Coffs Coast Chargers to play Lake Mac Attack, in the Sixers Conference Final.
In their second season, Lake Mac Attack qualify for the first time.
It is the second successive season the Wranglers and Chargers have progressed to Finals Day.
The Aces are also seeking to make their second consecutive Plan B Regional Bash Finals after finishing runners-up to the Central Coast Rush last season.
Phillip Oval will host a Men’s and Women’s Regional Bash double header on Sunday when the ACT Aces meet the Border Bullets in both matches, the Women’s match to follow the Men’s fixture.
The Wagga Wagga Sloggers play the Murrumbidgee Rangers and Bullets at Chisholm Oval, while the Aces meet the Rangers at Stirling Oval on Sunday afternoon.
Cameron Suidgeest is a key player for the Bullets. The 27-year-old fast bowler has been a regular representative for NSW Country in recent seasons taking 41 wickets at an average of 12.7 during the last three Australian Country Championships.
He has also previously represented ACT/NSW Country at Second XI level.
Fast bowling allrounder Ethan Bartlett will again feature for the Aces after leading them to the Final last season. His power hitting will be central to their prospects of booking a place at the SCG in January.
