Hanging Heaton secure final place

Hanging Heaton secure final place


Hanging Heaton have reached the Gordon Rigg T20 Group A Cup final for the fourth time in five season after defeating Pudsey Congs in a rain hit semi-final.

They won by eight wickets on a comparison of scores when the weather halted their reply to the Pudsey Congs score of 147-7 after 13.5 overs.

At the end of the last completed over Hanging Heaton had scored 112-2 while Congs had been 102-3 at the same stage in their innings.

Skipper Ben Kohler-Cadmore (51) and Gary Fellows (43) shared an opening stand of 98 which ensured that Hanging Heaton were scoring briskly enough with the weather threatening and their efforts paid off.

Kohler-Cadmore hit five sixes and two fours in his 30-ball knock and underlined his ambition to win the trophy once again.

Sri Lankan Pramud Hettiwatte impressed when Congs were put in to bat. He struck three sixes and six fours in a knock of 54, but none of his colleagues were able to play with a similar freedom. Spinner Callum Bethel (3-32) was the best of the bowlers for Hanging Heaton.

Hanging Heaton will meet the winners of the second semi-final between Bradford & Bingley and Woodlands which has been rearranged for next Tuesday. The final will be staged at New Farnley on Sunday, July 25.
