Triangle 267-8 beat Illingworth 226 all out by 41 runs


Like 2019, the 1st XI tasted defeat at Triangle in a high-scoring clash. Jack Hemblys (3-64) had left Illingworth in a good position at the halfway stage of the first innings, picking up the wickets of the dangerous Silkstone and Crosland to leave Triangle on 104-4, Ben Robertshaw taking the wicket of Tom Watson for 49. The home side rebuilt and then plundered 107 runs off the last ten overs to set them as firm favourites.

Matthew Smith (41 off 40) and debutant Josh Cooper (40 off 32) tried to keep the pace, with Illingworth 116-3 at the halfway stage. However, wickets then fell regularly and despite James Lawton's 39 off 32 balls, the visitors fell comfortably short, but ensured that the picked up the maximum bonus points of offer for scoring 180.
