Forfarshire blasted their way into round two of the Murgitroyd National T20 knockout on Thursday night when they hit a mammoth 252 for 3 against Freuchie.

Forthill 2nd XI were the only team to complete a game over the weekend when they overcame Perth Doo’cot by eight wickets to maintain their unbeaten position at the top of SPCU Division One.

Murgitroyd T20

Craig Wallace set the scene for a high total with a series of early boundaries before a number of towering 6s from Tim Hancock saw Forfarshire race to 154 before the first wicket fell in the 12th over when Hancock departed for 55 from just 31 balls.

Wallace continued the onslaught and eventually fell for 129 from just 59 balls after hitting fifteen 4s and five 6s. Aman Bailwal hit an equally quick 50 not out from 21 balls to round off the innings.

Freuchie replied with 82 for 8 against a strong Forfs attack, Scott Cameron returning his best figures for the club with 5 for 12 in a four over spell. Forfarshire will now play Rossie Priory away in round two.
