U9 Boys v Brookes Cambridge
This match was plyed away at Brookes. We lost the toss and they chose to bat first. We started off well with Ollie and George T. bowling first with their bigger hitters on to bat first, they got quite a lot of 4s, in fact they got five 4’s and two 6s. After that we moved on to pair two with Josh and Herbie bowling. They did some good bowling with Herbie doing some over arm and then some underarm. They had three dot balls, four 4s and 5 runs. Next was Albie and Sami. They gave away six runs and three no balls. We then moved on to the last pair but as Brookes were a player short they had to bring one of their players on for a second time who just so happenmed to be their best player. They score a lot of points against us! Their final score was 396 runs.
After we had a quick drink and a snack it was our turn to bat. We started off well with Ollie and George T batting first with a few wides and a lot of 4s from George T.. Next was Josh and Herbie. There were quite a lot of dot balls, a wicket from them, a wide, a boundary and one run. Soon after that we had Albie and Sami. We played extremely well with us getting two 4s, 3 dot balls and three runs and another 4. Myself and Ash were up next. Ash gave some big hits giving us the opportunity of getting lots of points. Our final score was 305 runs.
We played quite well but I think we definitely need to improve on stopping the balls getting out of the boundary, there were a lot of balls going through peoples legs!
Thank you to Brookes for hosting and providing refreshments. Thank you to Mr Loft for awesome coaching. Man of the match goes to Sami for getting his first wicket.
