T20 Finals Weekend

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:
