Century stand buries Flatts

Somerset Cricket Club (Flatts won toss): St George's beat Flatts by seven wickets

Oronde Bascome and Ankoma Cannonier produced a century partnership to catapult St George's through to the First Division Twenty20 final.

The top-order pair added 134 runs for the second wicket in ten overs to carry St George's to the brink of victory in their emphatic seven-wicket triumph over Flatts.

Bascome, who rejoined St George's from Southampton Rangers at the beginning of the season, led the East Enders's run chase with 73.

He struck eight fours and three sixes and after he and Cannonier had all but sealed the win, it was only fitting that Bascome scored the winning runs, a six over long on off Nelson Bascome as St George's reached their target with 26 balls to spare.

Cannonier, meanwhile, hit seven fours and four sixes in an equally aggressive knock of 67. Nelson Bascome, two for 45, led the Flatts bowling attack that conceded 19 extras, including 14 wides.

Earlier, Flatts' victory hopes seemed bright after they posted 170 for four in their allotted overs against a St George's bowling attack also lacking cutting edge.

Opener Reggie Baker anchored his team's innings with an unbeaten 72, that included seven fours and three sixes.

He added 50 for the first wicket with Kristof Von Tander and a further 76 for the third with Logan Phillips.

Flatts shot themselves in the foot with a poor bowling display.

They struggled throughout to put the ball in the right areas and St George's took full advantage.
