Elliott steers Warwickshire to semi win
Former Black Caps allrounder Grant Elliott’s poise under pressure has boosted Warwickshire to the English county T20 Blast semifinals for the third time in four years. Elliott and fellow Kiwi Colin de Grandhomme steered Warwickshire to a six-wicket win as they chased down Surrey’s 204-5 with four balls to spare. Elliott played a superb captain’s knock in amassing 59 from 37 balls, including five fours and three sixes. De Grandhomme’s 39 off 22 included five fours and a six over mid-wicket which finished the game, the pair adding 64 off 38 balls.
