Man of the match Anthony Smith (far left) and teammates Eureka Grass, presented with the trophy for winning the Cool Promo Twilight Cricket Competition

A large and vocal crowd packed out the Byron Bay Recreation Ground to watch the Cool Promo Twilight Cricket Finals last Sunday.

Eureka Grass, having beaten TNR in the semi-final earlier that day, went on to beat The Kronix, the form side of the season, in a sensational last-ball thriller. 

Man of the match, Anthony Smith, was left with seemingly too much to do, requiring 23 off the last over. Two sixes and some frantic running between the wickets with teammate Ashley Burke-Smith brought home the winning total of 109 on the last ball of the game.

The crowd invaded the pitch and with much ‘cricket love’ around after what some said was one of the greatest grand finals in the history of the competition.
