Under 11 v The Downs
The A Team fielded well only giving The Downs 263 runs. However we couldn’t quite connect with the ball when batting today and only scored 239. Special mention for Sophie for taking her first wicket in a match!
The B Team watched The Downs score 280! Sometimes we even watched the ball zing past our noses! However, I will confess that The Downs were 253 with one over remaining. Then they scored amazingly well and maximised on the wides we bowled in the last over to have 3 extra balls. They thumped it over the boundary time and time again to quickly reach 280!
On the whole we played a steady game. We did score 260 but were caught out and stumped out so many times that we lost 20 runs from our score, taking us back to a final tally of 240 runs. I have to say 253 with one over remaining v 260 sounds a close match! It is just the final score was rather different! Onwards and upwards I say, bat harder and make clear decisions to run or stay!
