Geelong hosts National Cricket Inclusion Championships
LAST week, Geelong hosted the National Cricket Inclusion Championships (NCIC) for the fourth consecutive year.
This year nine separate ovals across Geelong helped hold the five-day competition.
Chair of the City of Greater Geelong’s social inclusion portfolio Cr Sarah Mansfield said she was pleased Geelong would continue to host the event.
“We are proud to be hosting this important tournament for the fourth year in a row. It’s definitely one of my favourite sporting events on the Geelong calendar.”
Victoria won two of the three games, with the other being cancelled due to poor weather.
The Male Deaf and Hard of Hearing grade was won by New South Wales, defeating South Australia in the grand final by eight wickets.
New South Wales won their third consecutive Blind and Low Vision final. Just like last year they defeated South Australia in the grand final, with Oscar J. Stubbs and Lindsay Heaven’s unbeaten 125-run partnership securing a nine-wicket victory.
