U13 v OBH
We arrived at OBH in the hot sun keen to get our match under-way. I lost the toss and they chose to bat first. Ben and Merlin opened the bowling brilliantly with them both getting wickets in their first overs. Then their 3rd and 4th batsman got a good partnership and they kept getting more runs until Tyler got them both out with one being caught by James. Their run-rate then increased and they didn’t look slowing up. Then Wilf got one of their batsman out who was on 60 with Merlin catching him on the boundary. Then Wilf got two more wickets, however they finished on a score of 196 for 7.
James and Kit then went out to open the batting but unfortunately Kit was bowled. Then Merlin went in and built a good partnership with James, then James was caught, followed by Tyler. Merlin and Harry raised our run rate but then Merlin was caught on 31. Ben and Fergus came in and supported Harry well but then got out followed by Harry. Wilf, Edward Ha. and Edward He., finished off the innings but sadly it was not enough and we finished on 101 for 8.
Thank you to Mr James for coaching and driving and OBH for match tea. Man of the match goes to the whole team for giving lots of effort in the intense heat.
Kit, Captain of Cricket
