Colts B Cricket v Grace Dieu 25/5/16


Colts B travelled to Grace Dieu and played a Kwik Cricket 15 overper side match. The team consisted of Lucas (captain), Dylan.G, Dylan.I, Ed.N, Ed.B, George, Declan, Atticus and Will.

We bowled first and Grace Dieu scored 247. Our best bowlers were Ed , Dylan. G. and Lucas and Atticus took his first clean bowled wicket of the season. Dylan.G. took two confident catches.

When we batted we took an early lead due to a strong partnership by Dylan.G and Lucas, scoring 13. Our second pair, Ed.N and George added twenty runs with good stroke play. They scored ten successive singles.

We were ahead of the required rate but the loss of four wickets held us back. With one over remaining we needed seven to tie, with two balls left we needed two to tie, with one ball left it was a tie and after the final ball ……………. it was still a tie!

It was an exciting end to a super afternoon of cricket, played with enthusiasm by both teams.
