Godleman smashes 54 against Nepal

Billy Godleman top-scored for the MCC in their 113 run victory over Nepal in the first Twenty20 match of the Legacy Tour. 

Godleman, who also hit 10 and 39 in a first-class victory last week, smashed 54 from just 30 balls, including four fours and four sixes, as the MCC posted a total of 189-7, before Nepal were dismissed for 76 in less than 14 overs.

The score is Godleman’s second white-ball half-century of the tour, having also struck 52 in a 50-over fixture just five days before.

New signings Sean Abbott and Ben McDermott were in action for Australia in their final T20 against Pakistan, and the former played a starring role by taking 2-14 from his four overs.
