Champions Penn Win Sunday League Knockout Final

Yesterday Penn CC claimed the Worcester Border Sunday League Knockout Trophy, beating Waterfront CC in a rain affected afternoon at Pedmore CC.

Penn won the toss and elected to bat, taking full advantage of the conditions early on, the Penn batsman set to work at destroying the Waterfront opening attack. Impressive shots from both Amun Samra 129* and Vikul Lal 95, giving a good grounding for the innings with Ted Doggett making a contribution of 25, leaving Penn’s total at 259-1 off 40 overs.

Waterfront soon mounted an immediate attack but with the rain setting in with 30 overs gone and Waterfront 25 behind the run rate, the game finished with them requiring another 90 odd runs in the final 10 overs, with no chance of getting back out to finish the game.
