Cricket Tournament

Cricket Success June 2015Absolutely Fantastic !

Extremely well done to all the girls who were able to take part in the tournament on Sunday 28th June.

They  started well by winning the toss. Then they demonstrated good quality consistent bowling with few errors.  All of them !  Everybody got a decent bowl and showed they were worthy, with most (if not all ?) taking wickets.  Their fielding was superb.  Catches were taken when offered, and brave attempts made at some other difficult chances.  What followed was batting straight from the training ground.  Cricket Success June 2015Great running between the wickets, with some memorable drop and run combinations, batters at either end being alive to what is possible. This together with hitting the bad ball when given, and some glorious half volley drives to cover which gave some parents reason to offer positive statements of disbelief !

With a score of 110 v 103 after taking account of wickets, my reflection is that they were more consistent overall in batting and bowling.  The greater number of wickets taken was the difference …… or was it the shots for 4s and 6s…. or was it the run a ball approach…..  Who knows? They WON !

They have a medal each.  And there is a trophy which they will share around.  We await to hear whether that win gets them to the northern finals.

The girls are: Ojas, Emily, Amber, Elle, Hannah and Hollie
