CRICKET: Laidley District Cricket Club want to get on the front foot with the upcoming one-day competition, which will once again feature sides from both the Ipswich and Toowoomba competitions, ready to start up again in October.

Last year's inaugural intercity competition was successful with positive feedback from players and officials but a series of changes have been made in a bid to improve the format.

Nevill returns to Sixers for BBL|07 - cricket.com.au

Peter Nevill will don magenta instead of red this summer after the Sydney Sixers announced the Test wicketkeeper has crossed from the Melbourne Renegades for the upcoming KFC Big Bash League season.

Nevill will return to the SCG-based side on a multi-year deal after spending five seasons with the Renegades, where he's shared the gloves with incumbent Test 'keeper Matthew Wade in recent seasons.

Quick Wrap: Henriques, Lyon star in thriller

The 31-year-old admitted he's looking to returning home and playing alongside many of his NSW Blues teammates.

"It was a great opportunity to be back playing with people that I've played with extensively at NSW," he said.

"One of my fondest cricket memories was winning the BBL|01 title with the Sixers and I'd love to win another one with the same guys.

"My best mates play for NSW and the Sixers so the ability to play all season with through,...

CRICKET: Laidley District Cricket Club want to get on the front foot with the upcoming one-day competition, which will once again feature sides from both the Ipswich and Toowoomba competitions, ready to start up again in October.

Last year's inaugural intercity competition was successful with positive feedback from players and officials but a series of changes have been made in a bid to improve the format.

The newly-formed South East Redbacks, a result of a merge between clubs Swifts and Eastern Taipans, will join Laidley, Centrals, Northsiders, Brothers, Wests, Metropolitan Easts, Highfields, University and Northern Brothers Diggers in competing for the one-day crown.

Guy McKenna leaves Essendon to take up role with Cricket Victoria - The West Australian

Faced with an uncertain future at Essendon under coach John Worsfold, Bombers assistant Guy McKenna thought he should look for something new to do.

A job in cricket wasn’t top of the list for the former Gold Coast Suns mentor but when he saw a position in an Cricket Victoria’s coaching and talent identification unit advertised on LinkedIn, he decided to apply.

McKenna, who played 267 games with West Coast and has been an assistant coach at West Coast, Collingwood and Essendon, was met with curiosity from CV administrators in his first interview.

But the idea of helping “coach the coaches” in a newly established role appealed to the one-time teenage fast bowler, who chose footy over cricket as a 16-year-old in Western Australia.

And McKenna is confident his experience through 30 years playing then coaching in elite sport gives him the tools he needs to excel in his code swap.

Honour for Valley cricket stalwart - Toowoomba Chronicle

HONOUR: Katherine Raymont received a Life Membership to Queensland Cricket.

HONOUR: Katherine Raymont received a Life Membership to Queensland Cricket. Contributed

CRICKET: Katherine Raymont has been awarded Queensland Cricket life membership.

Raymont, who has been a player, coach, selector and administrator during her long career, received the award from Queensland Cricket Chairman Sal Vasta at the annual general meeting on Tuesday night.

In 1990, she became the first Queenslander in 34 years to represent Australia at women's Test level, and the first Queenslander to play a one-day international.

The Laidley product and long-time Gatton resident did not start playing cricket competitively until the age of 19, and went on to play for Queensland from 1980-81 to 1993-94, captaining the side for 10 of those seasons.

A prolific scoring batter, Raymont won the player of the year award on three occasions, then spent another decade as a state selector upon her...

Ed Cowan shreds Aussie selectors for giving Hilton Cartwright a game - NEWS.com.au

FORMER Test player Ed Cowan has slammed Australian selectors for treating the national side like a “development squad” and picking players they like rather than players who deserve an opportunity.

Cowan — who wore the baggy green 18 times — was critical of the side that lost to India on Monday morning (AEST) in the first game of the five match ODI series, taking particular offence to all-rounder Hilton Cartwright’s inclusion.

The West Australian made his ODI debut in that game and opened the batting (covering for the injured Aaron Finch), but managed only a single before being bowled by Jasprit Bumrah. Selectors obviously like what they see from the 25-year-old having already given him a Test debut last summer and promoting him to the final XI for the second Test in the Aussies’ recent tour of Bangladesh.

But Cowan said the right-hander didn’t deserve a shot in India ahead of other...
