Altofts win Group B Twenty 20 Final

16 Jul 2017

Championship B side Altofts lifted the T20 Group B Wheatley Cup after beating Sandal by eight wickets in the final at Pudsey St Lawrence.

Sandal, who had produced some good batting performances to reach the final, never got going when they batted first.

Opener Danny Riley, prolific in the earlier rounds, went early for 12 and after that wickets fell at regular intervals as they were bowled out for 105 with one ball of their 20 overs remaining. Callum Nuttall (4-14) was the pick of the Scholes bowlers.

Altofts cruised to victory in 14.2 overs with Farrouk Alam hitting an unbeaten 55 off 35 balls with two sixes and eight fours. Opener Kieran Miller (44) also ensured his side had no problems.

Sam Noden was the pick of the Sandal bowlers with 1-12 from his four overs, but the day belonged to Altofts and it was their captain  Jordan Carter who proudly lifted the trophy.
