Colts B take 13 wickets at RGS
Colts B v RGS Hardball pairs 15+5
We played a fun format today where we played pairs crickets, 3 overs per pair but every wicket lost rewarded the bowling team with 5 runs. When the 15 runs were over, we played 5 overs where anyone who hadn’t lost a wicket could bat again until they were out. Our first batting pair were Alex and Gabriel who both unfortunately sent the ball upwards and were caught. Dylan and Kitty came in next and both batted well, neither losing a wicket. Dylan scored a nice 4 between square and fine leg. Molly and Lawson were the third pair and also batted well despite one unlucky run out. Lawson scored two fours. Wallace and Guy were the fourth pair and were unable to protect their wicket. Molly and Lawson came out again as the fifth pair and again batted well, Molly put on another 9 runs and Laswon 7. In the final five overs Dylan, Kitty and Lawson all got to bat again and Abberley finished on 117 off 20 overs. However, we had lost 9 wickets which meant RGS would start on 45 after tea.
It was a day for Abberley’s bowling and fielding as we limited RGS to adding only 48 runs to their total, finishing on 93. Wickets, catches and run outs kept coming and Abberley added another 65 to their score, finishing on 182!
Molly – 5 wickets - player of the match!
Lawson – 2 wickets
Dylan – 2 wickets, 1 catch
Alex – 1 wicket, 1 catch
Wallace – 2 wickets,
