U13/14 Thunder - Round 2 vs St Ives Hazlewood

Thunder Home in Last Ball Thriller

What a game. To win by one run hit by Josh on the last ball of the game was really exciting.

I lost the toss and they batted first.  Which was actually a win for us as coach Paul and I wanted to bowl first as we chase well. We were a bit asleep though in the field in the first 16 overs.  We collected ourselves in the second half and restricted St Ives to 137 which I think is a good result.

Declan bowled very well and took 3 wickets. In fact, everyone bowled well.  
We started batting really well. Their opening bowler looked like he could have driven himself to the game. Wow, he was big!

Roy batted beautifully for 30 and Declan just as well. Loved his advancing down the wicket for 20.
We took our cheeky singles and ran well between the wickets.

The last over was really tense, but with Josh at the crease I knew we had it in the bag. Last ball required 2 to win. Josh drove a lofted drive over the infield for 2.  We were home.

Awesome game.
