Lincolnshire 109 (19.5 overs)

Cheshire 112-4 (17.5 overs)

CHESHIRE completed their disappointing T20 season with a morale boosting win over Lincolnshire at New Brighton.

Although poor weather meant only one of the scheduled double-header games was possible, Rick Moore's side got their act together in convincing fashion as both batting and bowling clicked in a low-scoring game.

Eighteen-year-old Ben Gibbon from Oulton Park grabbed 3-25 and wily David Wainwright took 3-10 with Chris Sanders taking 2-19 to restrict Lincolnshire to 109, Louis Kimber top scoring on 21.

With something of a score to settle having been humbled in the 50 over format by the same side two weeks earlier, Cheshire reached the target comfortably, Will Evans making 31, Rob Sehmi 24 and Nick Anderson 23.

"We got some pride back," said Moore.

"It was an all-round no-nonsense performance and particularly pleasing to see our bowling coming together ahead of the three day season which starts next week (against Wiltshire)."

Cricket chairman Pete Babbage echoed Moore's thoughts, adding: "They worked hard today. I was really pleased they got a result.

"It was a good response to the disappointments of the last couple of weeks with a fine, disciplined performance.

"We know we can play at a higher level and today was a good reaction."

With the second game abandoned after a mid afternoon shower, Lincolnshire got their required point to qualify for the Wormsley Final's Day in August.

For Cheshire, a bit of light after a gloomy campaign and they can look forward to the three day championship season now with some pride restored.
