TCL Boom: Trevallyn advances to the grand finale | Examiner

sport, cricket,

In a rare event of history repeating itself, Trevallyn beat better-placed Bracknell by three points to advance to his second straight TCL Boom Grand Final. Both teams also finished second and third last year, battling in the preliminary final to see Trevallyn pass, the home side unable to prevent the same from happening this time around. Heading into their second straight preliminary final, the two had split their 2020-21 clashes – both winning their home games – between Bracknell as the favorite of the match.

Sent to bat, Trevallyn went 5-101, backed by three abandoned hitters hitting their 25-ball mark. Coach Maxine Woods (20), Emma Elliott (14) and Belinda Blackberry (nine) all reached the point of mandatory retirement, while Woods’ opener Kellie Scott looked that way before being caught and pitched by Natalie Curbishley for 13. Curbishley was Bracknell’s choice of bowlers, taking 2-13 of her fours as Emma Haase (1-2), Hanna Mattarozzi (1-9) and Amy Buettel (1-33 ) were the other wicket takers. Curbishley and Buettel established a solid platform with the bat, combining for 27 just 17 deliveries before the former was fired for 13, but Walker’s constant influence was missed in the middle order, with only Emma Thomas (13) joining Buettel to retire. Buettel came back at the end of the innings, realizing 27 on 50 balls, but that wasn’t enough – the home side being limited to just eight over the last two overs, requiring 12 for the win. Elliott (2-16) was Trevallyn’s top bowler as Blackberry won the other wicket in an inning with two runs. Trevallyn will face reigning prime ministers Longford in the grand final at Longford next Sunday.
