last ball drama as seconds miss out

By

last ball drama in dramatic T20 clash

Darkness descended over Parkside Road after Netherfield Seconds played host to Grimsargh in the Palace Shield Twenty-20 Competition on Wednesday Night.

The Seconds who lost out to Kendal in the last T20 game played an opponent which to my knowledge they had never played before, Grimsargh currently play in Division One A however sadly for them they are fighting relegation.

However Netherfield missed out by 1 run, with the game going into the last over, on a low scoring encounter for a 20 over aside game.

The story of the game saw Grimsarghs openers in relentless form when Mark Blackburn and Ryan Hilton pushed the score along at a very quick rate.

Both Blackburn and Hilton hit some fantastic shots, with the visitors at that stage on course for a big score, however fortunately for Netherfield they managed to break the partnership when a mistimed hit for 6 by Ryan Hilton was well caught from Joe Portman, with Joel Bibby taking the wicket.

From that point Blackburn hit out for 43 before a bowling change which saw Joel Derham and Theo Gallagher into the attack slowed the run rate down. Derham impressing with ball in hand after he claimed the wicket of Blackburn who saw his effort caught by Stuart Dixon.

After that Netherfield had control with Derham finishing with figures of 3-12, before Joel Bibby closed on 2-27. Theo Gallagher 1-19. Grimsargh closing on 113-8 off 20.

Netherfield made a bad start in their reply after Theo Gallagher was bowled by Saeed Bajibhai, however Fraser Kay steadied the innings with the early support of Joel Derham. Kay batted superbly well, and while Derham was trapped LBW by Suhel Bachcha the seconds were on top.

The seconds were comfortable with Dan Gaunt and Kay at the crease. However it all went wrong in the last over, where Netherfield required 2 from 4 balls, sadly some tight bowling by the visitors saw Netherfield fall 1 run short with Dan Gaunt run out for 27 on the last ball.

Netherfield closed on 112-2 off 20 which rounded off a frustrating and gloomy night at Parkside Road.

The Team are due to be at Longridge on Sunday in the last Twenty-20 game with the early start of 11 am!. Hopefully it wont get cancelled because of the World Cup!.
