SEASON 2023 - 24

In a first-of-its-kind state-wide tournament, Cricket NSW organised a T20 knockout competition for senior cricket clubs across NSW. The aim of this tournament is to bring together the senior cricket community in NSW and provide non-elite cricketing squads with the exciting prospect of being crowned the inaugural NSW Community Cup champions.

In 2023/24, 25 teams entered in the Inaugural NSW Community Cup, with Wollongong DCC emerged as winners with the story of finals day captured below.

Finals Day 2023/24 

Four of the finest club outfits in the state converged on Kanebridge Oval, Rouse Hill on Sunday February 11th 2024, to vie for top honours in the inaugural Cricket NSW Community Cricket Cup. 

Two metropolitan clubs, Epping Bulls Cricket Club and Berowra Cricket Club, qualified through separate pools, while Wollongong District Cricket Club and Wallsend District Cricket Club, representing regional NSW, also progressed through their respective brackets. 
 
The day did not disappoint and provided three high quality T20 fixtures, here is how it all played out. 

Semi-Final 1 

Wallsend District Cricket held their nerve and ultimately proved too strong Berowra Cricket Club in the end for Club in a low scoring final over thriller to book a place in the final.

Semi-Final 2

Wollongong District Cricket Club came out on fire with the willow after electing to bat first, amassing 6/145 against Epping Bulls Cricket Club. The Bulls were chasing the game from there and could only muster 8/131 in reply. 

Grand Final  

Wallsend District Cricket Club won the bat flip in the Big Dance and took first use of the facilities. The innings never really got moving with several batters reaching double figures but not going on with the task, finishing all out 105.  

Wollongong opening duo Jayden Zahra-Smith and Ethan Debono took the game away from a tiring Wallsend with a 62 run opening stand and Wollongong coasted home from there to finish 2/106.
