U14B Cricket – Match reports

At the weekend we played Tiffin school. After a strong bowling performance they were all out for 41 runs. Standout bowling from Thomas A-S. We easily chased down the runs in less than 8 overs and Samaksh A led the run chase with some good running between wickets and shots.

On Thursday we played Eton College. After a strong start to the bowling from Sam B, Thomas A-S and Thomas D, we had Eton at 96-7. However, some sloppy fielding and bowling meant they got to 158 all out in 29.1 overs. Batting, we started badly and never really got going, with Jude G the standout performer.
