COUNTY WATCH 18.05.2021
The wet weather over the weekend meant that only 3 matches involving Sunrisers senior and academy players could take place, in what was the last weekend of the ECB County T20 competition.
The London derby match v Surrey saw Sunrisers Naomi Dattani, Gayatri Gole, Sonali Patel, Katie Wolfe, Emily Thorpe and Sunrisers Academy player Anisha Dissanayake all in action for Middlesex.
The first match stated on time and Middlesex had reached 76/4 in the 15th over before the rain started to fall. Players returned to the field with Surrey having 5 overs to chase 32 (DLS par score). Middlesex fought hard, Gole taking a wicket along the way, but the hosts chased down the target in the 4th over.
A quick turnaround saw Middlesex back out to bat first, Dattani putting on a quick 25, before the rain came again. This time, there was no let up and play was abandoned.
Sunrisers Academy player Jodi Grewcock, in the Northamptonshire squad, took on Lincolnshire in one of the only fixtures to have both matches take place without any rain affected scores.
The first match saw Grewcock (Acad) taking the field for Northamptonshire after they won the toss. Lincolnshire made 124 in their 20 overs. In reply, Northamptonshire reached 89, Lincolnshire taking the win by 35 runs.
Northamptonshire batted first in the second match, being dismissed for 62, Lincolnshire reaching the target in the 10thover.
Congratulations go to Sunrisers Grace Scrivens and her Kent team, who won the T20 South East Group and to Sunrisers Academy player Elsa Barnfather and her Hertfordshire team, who topped the T20 East Group. A final well done to all our Sunrisers senior and academy players for your contribution to your counties in our region over the past few weeks. #Riseup
