Forfasrshire Won by 5 Wkts
Falkland on Sunday exited the Murgitroyd 20 Over trophy on a day with heavy showers around but most of them, thankfully, missing Falkland.
Forfarshire asked Falkland to bat first and at one point, Falkland were 45 for 6 after 7 Overs but a magnificent stand between professional Harsha Cooray and teenager Cassius Haresign with some glorious hitting by both players gave Falkland a more than respectable total, and at the changeover, things looked good for Falkland.
But for Forfarshire, Craig Wallace, dropped early on, took command and supported by Callum Garden and Craig McConnachie reached the total with over 3 Overs to spare. So another disappointment for Falkland, but at least they gave their supporters a treat with some fine hitting. Forfarshire now progress to the Murgitroyd Finals Day and we wish them well.
