PwC Have the Edge on Challinors on Run Rate
Birmingham's cricketing lawyers are out of this year's John Bright Trophy after PricewaterhouseCoopers won a semi-final place on Monday.
The calculators were out as the accountants reached a winning score of 111/4 in 10.4 overs v No5 Chambers to achieve a net run rate marginally ahead of solicitors Challinors, who also won three of their four group matches. PwC play the impressive Ernst & Young side next Thursday, while GVA Grimley meet the strong KPMG team in the other semi-final in Birmingham's corporate cricket tournament at Britannic Park, Moseley, on Tuesday.
