The weekend promises promises cloudy conditions with plenty of sunny spells. So reasonable prospect for the seven T20 Finals in Leinster to be played to a finish. The alternatives – super overs, bowl out, coins tosses and sharing of titles are really not to be contemplated.
12 clubs have made it through to this final weekend, with two – YMCA and Merrion – having two teams involved. Three matches are taking place today [Saturday], the two highest divisions and the new Adamstown Cup. The main venue is Sydney Parade [with the matches live streamed] and Corkaig Park.
The full list of finalists are:
|D1||DHL [Alan Murray]||YMCA v Railway Union||Sydney Parade||Sat 15.00|
|D2||IBI [TIllain]||Merrion 2 v Knockharley||Sydney Parade||Sat 10.45|
|D3||LHK [Middle]||Merrion 3 v YCMCA 3||Anglesea Road||Sun 15.00|

The matches at Anglesea Road take place tomorrow. Unfortunately spectators are not allowed because of government restrictions but again the games are being live streamed.
