Under 15B Indoor match against West Harrow ‘B’ on 4th Dec 2011
Today we had another win against West Harrow CC and this time it was the turn of our under 15 B team.
In the batting department Krishan Patel and JeyKumar’s opening partnership was the key to our total of 95. However our running between the wickets was non existent. Our under 15 B team needs to take a leaf out of our under 15 A team’s book on running between the wickets. In contrast West Harrow ran many singles when they batted. However we ended up on 95 for the loss of 2 wickets in our allotted 10 overs.
Our fielding was exceptional. Vaheeshan’s single handed catch which was destined for 6 was probably the best. He also had a good throw that earned a run out in addition to a couple of good throws which nearly brought up a run out. Kevin’s catch was also of a very high standard which goes to show that the under 15 B team have some quality players.
We saw some good bowling and fielding by Joshua and Keson. We restricted West harrow to a score of 76 for the loss of 4 wickets to win the match by 19 runs.
Even though this was a good start to our under 15 B indoor tournament, we need to raise our game against opposition such as Bessborough and Harrow St. Mary’s in the upcoming fixtures.
Thanks go out to Kannan for umpiring today’s match. Shan and I were really delighted to see the many parents who came to watch the match and cheer our boys. Thanks also to our under 13 Manager and Asst. Managers Prakash and Suresh for their support and guidance.
We need to practice and remember the mantra “Running between the wickets”.
