On an absolutely scorcher of an afternoon up in Perthshire, with hardly a breath of air, an U12 side took on Strathallan and it was super to have such an enthusiastic bunch of boys who were chomping at the bit for a game of cricket! Having won the toss and decided to bat, Harry and Will C opened proceedings and were going along nicely until they were both run out, one unluckily and other through a lack of calling – a lesson learned! Edo played a few lust shots before being caught when he should have left the ball as it would have been a wide; this brought Quin (37no) and William (31no) to the crease, and together they put on over 70 runs and batted very well indeed, picking up lots of quick singles (one or two were a little too quick!) and punishing anything short to the boundary. It was a terrific partnership and took us up to 141 for 4 in our 20 overs when we all headed off for a much needed cup of tea and gallons of water!
In reply, Joshua took a wicket with the first ball of the innings and wickets continued to tumble at regular intervals. We bowled very few extras and Lachie kept wicket pretty tidily too; perhaps we were guilty of not bowling at the stumps enough, but Strathallan found run scoring very difficult indeed and were 44 for 8 at the end of their 20 overs which meant a comfortable and well deserved win. Fergus was the pick of the bowlers, but it was good to see Will G get a wicket and everyone fielded well considering the hot conditions. Well played, boys, on a super performance!
