U11 Cricket Team
In a semi final fixture played out in the warm afternoon sun @ Greenmount on Wednesday our U11 cricket team have once again reached the island schools cricket final.
It is usually our strong bowling and fielding which has seen us through to victory. But today it was a strong batting performance that clinched the game. All of our batsmen put in a great performance and added runs to our total. But an impressive 40 runs notched up by Finley and Charlie set us on our way. We ended the innings with 294 runs having lost no wickets. We also hit five 6s and six 4s on the way.
In our fielding spell we bowled well but did bowl 6 no balls and 4 wides, each is 2 runs given away. However on a very positive side we also had 22 bowls where Wooton did not hit the ball or make any runs. We have worked on our bowling accuracy and this is now paying dividends in the games. Wooton finished the innings with 245 runs for 2 wickets .
We are now waiting to hear who we will face in the final next Wednesday @ Newclose County Cricket Ground.
With a little more focus on bowling and another impressive batting performance we will give ourselves every chance to become island champions again.
” Well played everyone today, but especially Kodi, who was drafted in as a last minute replacement and who put in a very good performance for the team ” Mr. Harris
