ACT's senior indoor cricket side, the ACT Rockets, have capped off a strong week with a national title at the Australian Indoor Cricket Championships in Brisbane.

Having earlier won through to the final with a win over Queensland in the major semi final, the Rockets again faced the defending champions in the final.

Fielding first, the Rockets restricted Queensland to just 51 runs, their lowest total for the tournament. Despite a nervous start to the run chase, the ACT side reigned in the total with ease, largely on the back of a dominant performance from Queanbeyan's Vinesh Bennett and Tuggeranong's Timmy Floros.

Commenting on the win, ACT head coach Billy Floros said "we were very confident heading into the final, and showed no signs of the fear that Queensland sides usually prey on. I'm particularly pleased with how calm the boys were in the run chase."

The win represents the ACT's first Australian Championship, and completes rebuilding phase begun when Floros took over as coach in 2009.
