We're through to T20 finals day at Wormsley

Group 2 winners after a victory and narrow defeat

Berkshire have qualified for the MCCA T20 Finals Day at Wormsley in August.
They finished top of Group 2 after a win and a narrow defeat against second-placed Herefordshire at Eastnor on Sunday.
In their first game, Berkshire scored 163-8 with Chris Peploe top scoring with 49, followed by Andy Rishton (28), Euan Woods 26 and Middlesex 2nd team player Joe Cracknell 23 on his debut. They then restricted their hosts to 139-6 (Joe Ellis-Dabrowski 50no) with Datchet's slow left-armer Ollie Birts taking 4-27, with two wickets coming off successive deliveries in the first of his four overs, so completing a 24-run victory.
The second game proved a much closer affair. Berkshire looked in serious trouble at 32-6 in the eighth over, but Richard Morris (pictured) led a tremendous recovery, cracking an outstanding 79 off just 49 balls with three maximums and five fours. He was well supported by Sukhi Kang, who contributed 30 from 33 deliveries, the pair putting on 106 for the seventh wicket in 12.2 overs, leaving Berkshire on 138-6.
Two wickets from Birts and one by his Datchet team-mate Peploe left Herefordshire 36-3 off 6.1 overs but a fourth-wicket stand of 40 in four overs improved their position.
Peploe took two wickets in as many deliveries to leave the game in the balance, but Tom Hage scored a useful 35 off 27 balls before Peploe caught him off the bowling of Tom Nugent.
It was building towards a nervy finish with the hosts requiring 11 off two overs. Rishton run out Ian Bullock (128-8) and eight runs were required from the final over bowled by Nugent. The paceman dismissed Alex Wilkinson for 12 off his fourth ball, but Dan Conway scampered two off the next to earn his side a one-wicket win with a ball to spare. Nugent finished with 2-35, Peploe 2-16, Birts 2-31 and Woods 1-28.
The Finals Day is on Sunday, August 26, with Berkshire being joined at the Buckinghamshire venue by Devon and Norfolk, plus the winners of Group 1.
Cheshire currently top the table, but could possibly lose out on net run rate if either Cumberland or Northumberland complete a double when they meet at Workington on July 15.
