Horley Hackers made a winning start in this new 20/20 tournament. They were put into bat and Adam Stephenson knocked a quick-fire 32 while Danyl Razzaq batted throughout for 33.
Horley were helped by the Cheetahs gifting them 49 wides and so ran up a total of 140 for 3 from their 20 overs.
Horley’s bowlers restricted the Crawley batsmen with the pick being Darren Croft, who only conceded 11 runs from his four overs. Fizal Nadir took two for 21 and Guy Derham four for 23 from their spells, allowing team captain Jordan Robins to take the last wicket with four balls to spare.
