Scott Macbeth produced a Man of the Match display as Brigade beat Ardmore by 24 runs in the DML T20 Charity final at The Rectory. The Ireland Under 19 international hit 6 fours and 8 sixes in a hard-hit 81 from just 38 balls. Brigade looked set for a total well in excess of 200, but Macbeth's dismissal saw the last six wickets fall for 11 runs in a five overs spell. Ifty Hussain hit an 11-ball 28, with three wickets for Edrees (3-12) and two apiece for Rachit Gaur and Harry Zimmermann. The Ardmore reply saw both openers Dharm Singh and Rachit gone first ball to Brigade professional Marcello Piedt (3-32). However, Edrees counter-attacked with a rapid 48 from just 21 balls that included 6 sixes to get his side back in the hunt. However, he holed out off Andy Britton (3-33) and from then on the required rate kept climbing as the Beechgrove spinners strangled the chase, bowling a combined 12 overs for 60 runs - meaning 105 were required off the seamers. Harry Zimmermann made 38, but Ardmore fell 24 runs short. The game raised over 800 pounds for the various charities.
