The Belle Vue Sports Club have defeated the Canal Number 2 Sports Club by 7 wickets, with 22 balls to spare, in a T20 encounter played last Sunday at Canal #2 Sports Club ground.

Belle Vue, in reply, made 110-3 in 16.2 overs. The visitors enjoyed themselves as they played each ball on its merit, resulting in their runs coming easily. They attacked when given opportunity, and did not choke under pressure, which resulted in them emerging victorious.
