County Academy Opener Westbury Helps Hay Park Lift T20 Trophy

County Academy Opener Westbury Helps Hay Park Lift T20 Trophy

Worcestershire Academy opener Ollie Westbury has helped Hay Park CC to win the Bunbury and District Cricket Association (BDCA) T20 competition.

Westbury was part of the Hay Park team which comfortably defeated visiting Eaton by 32 runs in the grand final.

He scored 12 off 14 balls batting at number four after Hay Park had elected to bat.

But Westbury has played a major role in Hay Park's success and finished as their leading run-getter and joint second highest wicket-taker in the T20 competition.

It followed on from his success in skippering the BDCA X1 in the Country Week tournament when he was the competition's top run-scorer.

Hay Park totalled 138-4 in their 20 overs and then restricted Eaton to 106-9 with Westbury taking one catch.

They had reached the final in the most dramatic fashion the previous week, requiring a Super Over to overcome Marist after the scores had finished level.

The T20 success completed a successful 24 hours for Hay Park as they had also won away to Eaton in a BDCA first grade match.

Westbury opened and scored 21 off 63 balls before an unbeaten 100 off 81 balls from R. Knoll and 90 from M. Steven had lifted Hay Park's total to 248-4 in 50 overs.

Eaton were then dismissed for 167 with Westbury bowling three overs for 23 runs.
