Bears v Steelbacks

Edgbaston… Friday July 14th…

Steelbacks won by 5 wickets

A month without any live sport, and it felt like longer…

Anyway, a win for the Northamptonshire Steelbacks, coming at 9.52, with the scores tied, from the very last ball of their 20 overs…

The Bears paid the price for failing to capitalise on an early 50 from Ian Bell, stumbling towards 156 from their 20 overs after being 102-2 after 12…

Edgbaston… Saturday August 20th…

Steelbacks won by 4 wickets

Ticket: £71 – Programme: £6

A win for Northamptonshire Steelbacks in the 2016 T20 Blast Final…

A very fast turnaround expected from Durham though, due to the rain affected nature of the day. Within half an hour of winning their semi-final, Durham were batting again…

Durham made 153 from their 20 overs, Keaton Jennings making 88 before being caught on the boundary. They got off to a cracking start in the field too, reducing Northamptonshire to 9 for 3.

It was downhill from there though, with Alex Wakely and Josh Cobb putting on 120 for the fourth wicket. Cobb went on to make 80, and to claim the Man of the Match award.

Northamptonshire won by 4 wickets with 5 balls to spare…
