COLTS B CRICKET V THE ELMS - WEDNESDAY 10 MAY 2017
HCJS Colts B (272-3) tied with The Elms Colts B (272-4)
An enjoyable afternoon of Colts B cricket in warm summer sunshine reached an exciting denouement with HCJS requiring 12 off the last over to win. Our bowling performance had been solid, if unspectacular, with Shaan our leading light with his pacey bowling grabbing 2 wickets in his first over. The fielding had been good and we had a large, but manageable total to chase. Early wickets meant we were always slightly behind the required rate and it was only some lusty blows from Ralph that kept us in touching distance. Xeni and Charlie as our last pair faced a difficult task needing 22 off the last 3 overs, which became 12 off the last. Super aggressive running, overthrows, wides, a boundary - the last over had it all. A tie seemed a very fair ending to a fantastic afternoon of cricket!
