Vitality CLUB T20 - L&DCC group Finals Day at Ormskirk CC
Ormskirk are without doubt the L&DCC's kings of T20 cricket as they extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches after beating Southport and Birkdale in today's L&DCC Group final at Brook Lane.
The winners began the day by disposing of Bootle by 27 runs with Gary Knight (70*) and Luke Platt (28*) adding an unbroken 104 for the fifth wicket. Knight then claimed five victims (ct 2, st 3) in Bootle's innings.
Ormskirk then watched Southport and Birkdale beat last year's finalists, Colwyn Bay, at a canter by nine wickets with Bradley Yates hitting 57 and Adam Phillips 44 not out.
The hosts and defending champions chose to bat first in the final and raced to 189-4 after their 20 overs with Luke Platt hitting an unbeaten 63 and Gary Knight 45. In reply, Southport and Birkdale were 71-3 after 10 overs but, despite Bradley Yates hitting his second half century of the day, they collapsed to 108 all out after 17 overs with spin twins Tom Hartley and Alec Mason each taking 3-24.
