Match Report

Result: Tie 251-251

The final U11 game of the season saw us travel to Ranby House under leaden skies and in humid conditions. Ranby elected to bat and I have to say that all of our bowlers bowled with great accuracy and consistency - they have really worked hard over the season to improve their skills. Although we limited their run scoring opportunities, very few chances were given by Ranby. Jemima and Alicia were the only bowlers to pick up wickets. Our opening pair of Kitty and Alicia started us off well, not losing a wicket in their two overs. Thereafter, batters played some risky uppish shots which unfortunately kept picking out Ranby fielders who were careful not to drop their chances. We got to the final two overs needing 22 runs to win - a tall order! Jemima and Michelle batted superbly together, quick to pressure the fielders with quick singles, turning them into twos and threes where possible. Remarkably, we managed to reach their total of 251 to end up in a tie! A really exciting end to our season - well done girls!
