Central Qld Seamers booked ticket to GABBA grand final spot

CRICKET: A swashbuckling 45 off just 18 balls from The Glen's and tournament Most Valuable Player Jason Seng helped guide the Central Queensland Seamers to a thrilling eight-run semi-final win against North Queensland Monsoons in the Bulls Masters T20 Country Challenge.

Seamers' 9-143 was also on the back of a 50 (40 balls) from Rockhampton's Joe McGahan and 22 runs from Cameron Keene.

It means CQ Seamers will meet Mackay-Whitsunday in the grand final at the GABBA on January 17.

Seamers' coach Jason Wells did not hide his excitement on social media.

"WOW!!! I am so very, very proud of the CQ Seamers and the way they played this carnival," he said.

"Learning every game and executed magnificently when it mattered in the final game.

"When under the pump, they played even better and well deserved a chance to play at the Gabba on January 17.

"GO THE SEAMERS!!!"

Monsoons were gallant in defeat and in the final over, it required 13 runs.

But McGahan (2-29) grabbed his second wicket after Logan Whitfield caught danger-man Daniel Kearney (32 off 25 balls).

Seng had a superb campaign with scores of 31, 16, 42 not out and 45 and took a total of 5-94.
