The best photos from Emerald Headingley's final match

Two brilliant matches between Northern Superchargers and Birmingham Phoenix. Phoenix Women all-but secure an Eliminator spot and the Men reach the Final.

A Northern Superchargers Women win would send them through to the Eliminator. Birmingham Phoenix would be all but assured of it if they won. Abtaha Maqsood was ready to go.
