Brown set the tone for the match earlier in the day with 51 from 31 deliveries, helping his side post a competitive 6/148.

In the second match of the day, the Beauy Bucheurs cruised to victory against Jimby Crickets.

Haydn Teese (42) was the shining light in an otherwise lacklustre performance from the Crickets, who finished with 119 from 20 overs.

Last Man Stands debutante Josh Browning led the onslaught with 2/4 from four overs before a 6th half-century on the trot for Sammy Matthews saw the Bucheurs over the line.

Steve Muggeridge (50 from 27) was also instrumental in the seven wicket win.

Crafty Tappers made their Beaudesert Last Man Stands debut in the final match of the day and did so in style, scoring 5/169 batting first.

Rob Bodecker ripped through the top order to claim 3/33 but Garry Singh and Tim Rule turned the innings around with innings of 60 and 51 respectively.

Duck Duck Gone were rolled for 102 in reply thanks to Rule, who snagged two scalps to hand the Crafty Tappers their first win.
