A double hat-trick from Celtic No Stars captain Jimmy McLaren put the icing on the cake as his team was too strong for Celtic All Stars in the Second Grade A T20 final played on Waitangi Day before the Senior Final.
Batting first his team scored 131 with Jimmy himself getting into the forties, but it was the bowling and fielding of the No Stars that kept the pressure on as the asking rate grew above 10 an over.
Then, in an inspirational spell Jimmy took four wickets in four balls, and just missed out on a fifth in 5 balls as the ball beat long-on’s outstretched hand to save the incling batsman. But in an over where he took 4-3 he had broken any hope of a comeback by the All Stars as they were dismissed well short of their target.
