They made 56 runs but lost seven wickets (which adds 3 runs per wicket = 21 runs to the opposition) then Barkers Creek went in for their innings and only lost one wicket (3 runs added to the opposition) giving Harcourt a final score of 59 and Barkers Creek’s final score was 135.
At the conclusion of a top evening of competition Barkers Creek emerged victorious and claimed the 2020-2021 Premiership Cup. See the Mail for more…
