Finals day 2017 was the culmination of two half months of cricket played across nearly 30 teams through group stages and quarter finals. Four good sides met in the two semis at Hatfield & Crusaders on Sunday 16th July.
Chorleywood were drawn to play Bishops Stortford, while in the other match Berkhamsted played Knebworth.
In the first semil-final Chorleywood batted first scoring 291-7, in reply Bishops Stortford were restricted to 247-12. In the other game, a strong Knebworth side outplayed Berkhamsted The final was contested by two strong sides, Chorleywood batted first compiling a good score of 303-3, the pressure of the total coupled with some very good bowling and fielding made it challenging for Knebworth to keep up with the required run rate with early wickets adding to the challenge. Despite a late rally Knebworth finished 240-10, Chorleywood winning the game by 63 runs.
Thank you to Hatfield & Crusaders for hosting the final, to the umpires on the day and to the Ian Watkins for coordinating the competition.
