East Christchurch Shirley has won the Show Weekend Pegasus Health Twenty20 tournament, after defeating Burnside West in the final on Sunday afternoon.

Both teams were on top of their pools after round robin play, and qualified for the final through playing some positive cricket.

East Shirley batted first and posted one of the highest scores of the weekend, making 160/4 off their 20 overs.  Leo Carter and Darren Broom made 50’s.

Burnside West commenced the chase in positive fashion, with Angus Harman, Carl Huyser and Sam Noster having them in the hunt at the half way mark, but some excellent bowling by Michael Davidson and Ben Hanham ensured East Shirley would come out on top.
