T20 Knockout Result

Last night, Penn 2nd XI beat Milford Hall 2nd XI in the Semi-Final of the T20 Knockout Competition in spectacular fashion.

Penn posting a modest total of 115 off their allotted 20 overs.

In reply Milford started well but after a few quick wickets the runs started to dry up in the middle order. After some tight bowling and sharp fielding the overs whittled down with one over remaining, two wickets in hand and six runs to win. Two leg stump yorkers later and Penn were victorious.

A great team win with a sprinkling of individual performances march the 2’s onto ‘Finals Day’

Tonight we see the 3rd XI look to emulate the same success away at Pelsall.

As the Staffordshire Club Cricket Championship T20 Knockout cup (take a breath) progresses into the Semi-Finals, Penn CC 2nd XI make light work of Wednesbury 2’s this evening, winning by 10 wickets chasing down 96 in a match played on the hottest day of 2015 so far, emulated through some hot hitting from the Penn openers.

SCORECARD

As we look towards finals day, this year hosted at Cannock CC on Sunday 6th September, an interesting stat is drawn out…there is only one club left in the tournament that has the opportunity to be represented in all three finals…

Back to this weekend and league action, Penn host Lichfield in a precursor to the team’s T20 semi-final. The 2nd XI play away to Lichfield and 3’s at home to Wolverhampton and finally the 4s away to Springhill.
