Arrowtown take Twenty/20 cricket spoils (slideshow)


A cricket team – largely comprising championship-winning rugby players – has won Mountain Scene’s Twenty/20 cricket league. 

In yesterday’s final at the Events Centre, they beat Kelvin Heights by seven wickets. Shane Clearwater and Hayden Finch both scored 30s to help Arrowtown overtake Kelvin Heights’ 109 tally with four overs to spare. 

In the semis earlier yesterday, Arrowtown convincingly beat Jack’s Point. 

And Kelvin Heights overhauled Fernhill/Sunshine Bay’s healthy 141 thanks to a terrific century from Rob von Elling.
