Todmorden into Twenty/20 semi despite defeat

TODMORDEN progressed to the semi-finals of the Twenty/20 competition in spite of being beaten by Nelson in a Group C bowl out.

Nelson hit the stumps four times to Tod’s once, after rain had curtailed the match with Todmorden 100 for three after 16 overs.

Professional Qaiser Abbas was unbeaten on 64.

“We were well set at 100 for three with four overs left, but a bowl out is the only way to get a result and unfortunately we came second best.

“But we still got through to the semi finals and we take on Nelson again next Friday away at their ground,” said skipper Andrew Sutcliffe.
