Champions A-Class Battery Services Bayley’s survived a scare before reaching their fifth straight final with a close 10-run victory over last year’s losing finalists, Jordan’s Supermarket Good Shepherd, yesterday.

Batting first in their semi-final at the Maurice King Sports Complex, Briar Hall, Bayley’s were dismissed for 101 in 23.4 overs with only captain Damarko Wiggins, who made 21, getting into double figures.

In reply, Good Shepherd, after seemingly well placed at 50 for one in 12 overs at the water break, were eventually restricted to 91 for five in their allotted 25 overs by Bayley’s, whose last defeat in the tournament was in the 2015 final against Wesley Hall.

Captain Rashad Allman tried valiantly to get his team past Bayley’s score but they were stifled by Bayley’s spinners, especially Wiggins, who came from behind the stumps, to deliver two maiden overs and take one for 11 off five overs.
