A quite brilliant 26 from 15 balls by Andrew Darroch has given Balbriggan a first win over Merrion 1, and made Merrion's qualification for the semi finals very difficult. Balbriggan needed 48 from the last five overs and then 27 from the last 16 balls. Darroch hit Hugh Kennedy for a six and a four in the 19th over, and then two boundaries off Tom Stanton in the last to win with a ball to spare
15:12
Merrion's 140 all out is the first time they have been bowled out in a T20 match in Anglesea Road since Pembroke dismissed then for 101 in July 2015. However Balbriggan 1 have only successfully chased four times in T20 cricket in the last 12 seasons, and only once (162-1 vs North County in 2019) was it higher than today's required total
14:40
This is only the sixth ever match between the sides, and Balbriggan have yet to win
