Flynn essentially bowled Darwin to a six-wicket victory, claiming 5-28 (off 10 overs) and then contributed 28 runs at the top of the order, as his Eagles ran down the Palmy total of 206 with seven overs to spare. In a surprise, Flynn fielded after winning the toss and while the Maroons openers Terry Bayly (65) and Stephen Regan (26) combined for a half-century first wicket partnership, the captain with his medium pacers and quick Troy Ryan (2-34) stemmed the tide and took control with a steady stream of wickets. Flynn said his team was keen to reverse the result from earlier in the year, when Palmerston won comfortably chasing a big score. They chased down nearly 300 against us earlier in the year, so we decided to do something different and bowl first, he said. I kept it simple while bowling stump to stump with the keeper up and the wickets kept coming. While Flynn was the outstanding bowler for Darwin, he shared the limelight with his fellow top order when batting. A series of partnerships was the successful ingredient, and each featured in the run chase. Blake Giarola (42, five fours and two sixes) got us off to a flyer and each of the others kept the momentum rolling, Flynn said. With finals not far away we need to turn our attention to two-day cricket. Palmerston skipper Udara Weerasinghe worked through seven bowlers looking for the right combinations, but none was effective, with four taking one wicket each. Scores: Darwin 4-210 (Ashley Doolan 47 n.o. Blake Giarola 42 Rick Burton 36 Jack Flynn 28 Pat Pisel 21) d Palmerston 206 (Terry Bayly 65 Jason Wilson 28 n.o. Stephen Regan 26; Jack Flynn 5-28 Troy Ryan 2-24). Cadel rests after crook year CYCLING CADEL Evans has declared he will race next years Tour De France but is still seeking answers about recent health problems which forced him to withdraw from the Olympic time trial. Speaking from his base in Switzerland, Evans said he had undergone tests to uncover the reasons behind his illness-plagued defence of his Tour De France title. But the 35-year-old says he isnt a spent force. Just because you have one bad Tour you dont give up. Sometimes you can turn these things around to bigger and better results and I will certainly continue racing, he said. Im not the youngest Tour guy thats for sure but at this point just looking at the here and now, Im get ting healthy and recovering and looking towards the end of the season. Evans said he had endured uncharacteristic health lapses and was having a much-needed rest. I had some stomach problems, something I ate or a virus, he said. My performance levels have gone and the fact I seem to have got small illnesses is not usual for me. Lowndes has perfect weekend MOTOR SPORT CRAIG Lowndes was crowned the king of Queensland Raceway yesterday with the evergreen veteran keeping his championship dream alive by powering his way to his fifth straight win at the Ipswich-based circuit. On a perfect weekend of racing for the 39-year-old, Lowndes blasted his way to the lead on the third lap of the 200km race and was never headed as Fords Mark Winterbottom hung on to the back of the Team Vodafone Commodore to claim second. Lowndess second win of the weekend keeps his bid to win a fourth V8 championship in reach with the star admitting Queensland Raceway could make or break his title bid before conquering the 3.2km circuit commonly known as the Paper Clip. This was a very important weekend, Lowndes said. But I think every weekend from here on in is very important. All four drivers at the top are under huge pressure and it is critical and crucial that we perform. I think we still have a lot of work to do but it has been a very satisfying weekend. It was his 85th career win. It has been a wonderful weekend, Lowndes added.
