BULLS MASTERS V BUNDY INVITATIONAL XI

A strong Bulls Masters outfit featuring some of Queensland's all-time greats needed all their powers to overcome a spirited Bundaberg Invitational XI team at Salter Oval.

Former Brisbane Broncos hard-man, Andrew Gee was given the skipper's armband and he shocked everyone including his own team when he won the toss and sent the locals in on a flat deck.

The Bundy boys got off to a steady start and were 50 without loss before the Masters knew what hit them but two wickets to Andrew Symonds and one each to Geoff Foley and Lee Carseldine had the Invitational side teetering at 4 for 105.

But an unbeaten 80 run partnership between Mcintosh and Leggat pushed them up to a formidable total of 4-184 after their 20 overs.

The run-chase got off too the worst possible start for the old Bulls with Lee Carseldine caught spectacularly by Leggat on the first ball and Chris Simpson nicking behind on the third ball to have them in a hole at two for nought.

But Hobart Hurricanes batsman Nathan Reardon and former Aussie cult hero Andrew Symonds began smashing the ball all over the park.

Symonds hit four sixes and eight boundaries on his way to 83 to put the Masters on track for the win.

But three late wickets gave Bundy a fighting chance heading into the final over with Ken Healy and Michael Kasprowicz needing seven runs off it to take the game.

An inside edge from Kasprowicz on the last ball was enough to steal a tense victory.

After the game, Bulls Masters batsman, Nathan Reardon said the Bundy side was one of the toughest regional teams he'd faced and they should be proud of their effortss.

The game wrapped up a three day tour of the town where the Bulls Masters helped the local cricket association raise money for grass-roots cricket in the region.

Scorecard attached.
