Burridge will play at the Ageas Bowl in the Southern Electric T20 Cup final after cruising past Sarisbury Athletic in their semi-final showdown yesterday.

Sarisbury were favourites to earn a place in the showpiece but Rick Ankers’ side dominated from start to finish, restricting their opponents to just 98 for seven as Geoff Dods (three for 15) picked up vital wickets.

Only Ricky Rawlins (41) got going for Sarisbury.

But Burridge had no such problems in their chase, getting home by seven wickets with two overs to spare.

Derek Kenway (37) and Sam Lavery (33 not out) made sure there were no alarms and sealed a final clash against South Wilts on July 24 (7pm).

It capped a fine weekend for the division one outfit after they plundered a mighty 408 for four in their 86-run win over Rowledge.

Shu Chowdhury hit a phenomenal 187 with 18 fours and 13 sixes in his 106-ball knock, while Kenway also blasted 85.
