Royal Artillery Outgun RLC In Power Cup Cricket Final

Army duo Graham Wiseman and Nick Schofield impressed as the Artillery completed the Inter Corps double.

 

The Royal Artillery have completed the Inter Corps cricket double for the 2021 season.

They beat the Royal Logistic Corps in Aldershot to win the Power Cup – which goes along with their T20 trophy from earlier in the summer.

Graham Wiseman and Nick Schofield were match-winners for the Artillery just weeks after helping the Army retain the Inter Services T20 title at Arundel Castle.

Wiseman's score of 61 runs included a number of impressive sixes as the Artillery opened the 50-overs match, setting a target of 204.

A poor batting display from the RLC saw Schofield run riot with the ball.

He picked up five wickets, including three dismissals in one over, as the RLC were all out for 34 runs.

That meant a 161-run victory for the Gunners.

 

Watch: British Army win 2021 T20 title!
