Edwards and Ming pick up top awards

Tom Edwards and Sheridan Ming have scooped the Evening Cricket League's knockout MVP awards.

Edwards's efforts with bat and ball helped The Associates deny Tuff Dogs a fourth consecutive top-flight league and cup double, while Ming's unbeaten 80 masterminded PHC's 39-run win over league champions CV Chargers in the First Division final.

The Premier League final produced a dramatic finish at Somerset Cricket Club where with five needed for victory — one more than initially reported — after Tuff Dogs posted 178 for six, Dave Horan smacked a six off the final ball of the 20 overs that went through the hands of Justin Barritt at long off to secure a three-wicket victory for The Associates.

Edwards, named as the final's most valuable player by the two captains, finished on 20 not out after earlier taking one for 38.

Other presentation-evening awards went to Maclaren Lowe, Piers Carr, Bevin Carr and Jarryd Dillas. Tuff Dogs' Lowe was the top flight's leading batsman, amassing 564 runs at an average of 56.4. The league champions' Bevin Carr was top bowler with 15 wickets at a cost of 21.4.

CV Chargers, who earned promotion in their first season in the league, had the best batsman and bowler in the second tier.

Piers Carr compiled 406 league runs, including one knock of 95 not out, for an average of 81.2, while team-mate Dillas claimed 14 wickets at an average of 14.2.
