Launceston Church Grammar School played Brooks High School in the inaugural Captains’ Cup T20 cricket match on Wednesday.
The game was played not only to recognise the achievements of Ricky Ponting (Brooks High School) and George Bailey (Launceston Grammar), as the only Tasmanians to captain the Australian Men’s Cricket team, but also to provide inspiration to current Brooks High School and Launceston Grammar students.
The match was played in great spirits with the Brooks team winning by 7 runs.
The Ponting medal was awarded to the Captain of Brooks who led with the bat making 38 off 34 deliveries. The Bailey medal awarded to the best Launceston Grammar, Dominic Rawlings, who bowled exceptionally well with 4/6.
Finals scores Brooks High School 10/96 (Jacob Walker 38, Dominic Rawlings 4/6) defeated Launceston Grammar 10/89 (Josh Farrell 23, Brad Barwick 2/9)
Thank you to Graham and Lorraine Ponting for their attendance.
