Ballarat Bolts will resume its Women’s Community Cricket north-west A one-day competition against Melbourne University on Sunday.
The Bolts endured an indifferent start to the one-day competition, having a bye in the first round then a washout in the second – they will be eager to get onto the ground and return to their winning ways.
Ballarat was the standout team of the twenty20 competition, finishing two games clear on top of the ladder, with the grand final to be played on February 3.
Captain Rachael Matthews said the side was looking forward to adapting its game to the one-day format.
“Sunday will be a good challenge as Melbourne Uni is a classy side and will be a massive threat in the longer form of the game,” Matthews said.
“We had a good break and are well-rested and looking forward to getting back into it.
“I have no doubt the Bolts will do their best on the day and we will see how we go. Win, loss or draw it will definitely be a great experience for our first one-dayer and no doubt something we will build on in the coming weeks.”
Melbourne University has one win from its two outings.
It will host Ballarat at Parkville’s McAlister Oval.
