Bashley Rydal’s youngsters overcame a middle-order wobble to beat Hook & Newnham Basics by four wickets and carry off the Hampshire Vitality Under-19 T20 Cup.
Having brushed aside Fair Oak in the semi-finals at Calmore’s Loperwood Park, Bashley looked to be cruising to victory at 90-2 chasing down Hook’s 121 all out.
But three quick wickets by Will Wyatt (3-19) left Bashley 94-5 – and in a state of panic.
Ten runs off the penultimate over lifted Bashley’s score to 117-6 and five wides off the first ball of the last over settled it.
