Barkisland ensured they topped their group with a perfect three from three record when they beat Calderdale rivals Elland in the Huddersfield League’s Twenty/20 competition last night.

They scored 132 for seven at Hullen Edge, with opener Jamie Summerscales (34) and Aussie LJ Brown (30) showing the way. Fahid Rehman and Chris Walker picked up a couple of wickets each for the hosts.

Elland were all out for 118 after 19 overs in reply with Greg Finn (41), Rehman (24) and Alex Rowles (20) the main contributors to the total.

All three fell to Darren Robinson (three for 27) while Alex Scholefield took four for 18 from his four overs.

The quarter finals are next Tuesday and Barkisland are assured a home game.
