Host Of Worcestershire Cricket Finals Reaching Their Climax

Worcester CC were the winners of the Worcestershire Cricket Under-Nines eight-a-side Incredi ball tournament at Himley CC.

They defeated Avoncroft in the final after both teams had topped their groups of five.

In a competition where teams lose three runs for each wicket that goes down, Worcester scored 88-3 (net 79) and then restricted Avoncroft to 30-3 (net 21) to win by 58 runs.

The final of the Under-17s T20 finals days for the Ryan Birt Trophy between Barnt Green and Ombersley was washed out and has been rescheduled for September 17 – again at Worcester Normads.

In the first semi-final, Barnt Green defeated Kidderminster and then Ombersley defeated Himley in a bowl out in the other last four match.
