On Wednesday (13th May) the Colts B team played Bilton Grange B team on the Astro pitch at Great Glen. In pleasant conditions our boys produced a sound performance and they outplayed the inexperienced Bilton boys.
Our captain, James B, won the toss and we chose to bowl. All our players bowled at least an over and the level of accuracy was mixed. Hugo F was the most consistent and he took four wickets. Tom W, Will McE and George H took two wickets each, and Will M took one. However, a lot of wides were bowled, which cost us two runs each, so this is on area to work on.
Some good fielding gave us some catches and run outs and with each wicket taking five runs off Bilton’s total, we held them to just 238 runs.
From very early on in our innings we got ahead of the required rate. This meant we were comfortable winners, with a final total of 306 runs. The best batting came from Will M, Will McE, James B, Max W, Matthew W and Kian D.
The ‘Man of the Match’ award went to Hugo for his accurate bowling.
