Gordon U/12 Gold - Round 10

Cricket Stumps"BETWEEN THE WICKETS"

What happens on the field gets reported! 

 

Gordon Gold 2/110 v Gordon White 0/0

 

Rain Dampens Golds Return to Allan Small.

Having been invited to bat under murky skies it was always a chance that the weather would intervene. However not to be put off Henry and Mitch set off in fine style. With a mixture of lovely drives and pulls Henry (22) put together an innings of style and belligerence. Not to be out done Mitch (6 retired) provided a perfect foil looking to turn the strike over at every opportunity. This bright start meant that at 8 overs both openers had provided a great platform, although the skies were threatening!

Charlie Cox

pulled and drove his way to a brisk 30 retired in 4 overs while Gen 11 retired  (6 overs) provided wonderful support . A feature of the pair was their running between the wickets which kept pressure on the field. Charlie W 22 not out in 3 overs and Alex (2) both risked their wickets in playing for the team as the rain moved in. Campbell 1 not out was at the wicket when the heavens opened. Despite the best efforts of the team to cover the pitch with a 'human shield' the rain poured in. Both teams waited some 25 mins but with no break in sight sadly the game was abandoned with the Golds in a good position at 2/110 off 16 overs. 

 

Disappointing considering the fine start however that is cricket!

Highlights:

  • Excellent opening stand by Mitch and Henry
  • Bright running between the wickets by all batsmen
  • Batsmen playing for the team ' great team spirit
  • Offside shots becoming common place ' that is what we want, that's cricket!!!

Thanks to Tim for umpiring and Steve for scoring under unusually difficult circumstances and Ralph, who concerned with the prevalence of scurvy in the team was looking to introduce the children to the delights of the humble grapefruit! Maybe next time Ralph.
