Under 11A cricket v Droitwich Cricket Club
It was a close game that could have gone either way. We opened the batting and finished on 232. This seemed good considering the standard of fielding and we had 35 runs deducted from our total having lost 5 wickets with Droitwich also taking two impressive catches.
TIlda and Grace played a cautious but steady opener to put runs up on the score board. Rosie and Monica followed and scored 17. Scarlett and Sophie had some excellent shots where their timing to connect with the ball was superb. Both found the boundary scoring 4s. Moly and Chloe made some amazing runs but had 3 outs whilst they were batting. So it was action packed all the way!
Grace was our opening bowler and took the first wicket! She caught the ball off the bat in a very assured way. Well played Grace! Droitwich could only notch up one run when Molly bowled. Then by the end of the third over with Chloe bowling, the guests had only reached 202. This was an impressive start to our fielding. This continued with Tilda taking a wicket too! Rosie was strong today and made some great throws into the wicket. Grace made the most amazing throw to hit the stumps when she was almost out on the boundary! It was exciting stuff. Droitwich’s final pair came into bat on 227. All was to play for. In the end, after some exciting play and strong batting from Droitwich, they finished on 240 and a win.
A super game.
