NATIONAL COUNTIES Berkshire beat Wales in semis

Holders Berkshire produced a typically resilient and reNCCA-Logo Mastersourceful performance to reach the final of the National Counties Trophy with a 62 runs win over Wales at NC at Port Talbot in the semi-finals.

Although Berkshire’s total of 182 for nine, in a match reduced by rain to 40 overs, seemed moderate they defended it superbly with their quartet of spinners - left-armers Chris Peploe and Luke Beaven and off-spinners Euan Woods and Max Uttley - throttling Wales’ run chase.

Former Hampshire batsman Oli Soames made 44 which frustrated Berkshire for a time before lunch but once he had followed Luke Webb back to the pavilion the writing was on the wall.
