Run rate gives Nor­den vic­tory in the rain

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - LES BAR­LOW

RUN rate de­cided Nor­den’s Tom Hard­man T20 match against Stay­ley on Fri­day night.

Peo­ple one mile away from Stag Park re­ported they never saw any rain, but it cer­tainly rained up in Nor­den to bring a pre­ma­ture end to a match Stags al­ways looked like win­ning.

Only Peter Skuse (18) and Pa­tel (13 not out) got into dou­ble fig­ures as 10-man Stay­ley were dis­missed for 84.

Har­vey Fit­ton took three for 18, and Naveed Za­mu­rad picked up two for one.

Greg Butterworth and Dean Lord each took two wick­ets.

Stags made a hard­hit­ting start to the re­ply and were 34 for the loss of Hashum Ma­lik and Josh Tol­ley when play ended af­ter five overs.

Un­der rules it went to run rate, and Nor­den were the win­ners.
