Somerset Disabled CC qualify for semi-final
Somerset Disabled Cricket Club have remained unbeaten all season and have won the S9 National South West League.
They will now progress to the semi-finals that are due to take place on August 25th.
In the final league match of the season against their Dorset counterparts at the Martinstown CC they won by an impressive 90 runs.
After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, Somerset got off to a flying start thanks to an opening stand of 147 between Nick Dean, who made 50 off 88 balls before he retired, and James Mayled, who hit 53 off 76 before he also retired.
In the middle order Jack Milton and James Redwood both made 13 as Somerset posted 214 for six from their 40 overs.
When Dorset replied they were soon in trouble against an accurate Somerset attack. They slipped to 15 for two before Steve Wiltshire came to the crease where he remained unbeaten on 50 as his side were all out for 124 in 27.2 overs.
The pick of the Somerset bowlers was James Mayled (three for 26) while there were two wickets each for Colin Hancock, Nick Dean and James Redwood.Back to News
