Hay hopes for tons of luck

SOUTH Launceston cricketer Chris Hay will be hoping to reproduce the career-best form he displayed in his last T20 innings when the NTCA T20 roster semi-finals are played today.

The 25-year-old batsman hit a magnificent 121 not out, off 66 balls, with nine fours and six sixes, opening the batting for the Knights in their final preliminary round game against George Town at the NTCA No.2 Ground.

``It was a bit of fun and I was pretty happy with it _ it doesn't happen often,'' Hay said of his innings.

``It was one of those days when everything worked.''

Hay said the century was a career-high total and was the highlight of his season to date as South made 207 and bowled George Town out for a 160 on a pretty good deck.

Today's semi-finals will see Mowbray taking on Westbury at  Invermay Park, and Riverside playing South Launceston at Riverside. Hay said he expected a close semi-final contest against Riverside.

Earlier in the competition Riverside defeated South Launceston by eight wickets. Riverside went through the pool games undefeated. 

Mowbray defeated Westbury earlier in the season by nine wickets. Mowbray won both its matches in their pool. 

Westbury is on top of the A-grade ladder and has been dominating the competition.

The winners will play off in the grand final on December 6. South is the defending NTCA T20 champion.
