SCORE – St Hugh’s: 123-5; Wisbech 89-5 after 20 overs
The first match of the season started very well. Eddie and Freddie N opened for us and looked solid, playing correctly to their opening attack bowlers. Eddie in particular showed great shot selection and was only dismissed (on 12) after a fantastic catch by the keeper. Matthew played a real captain’s innings and played some superbly timed shots on both sides of the wicket for an unbeaten 47. Will B smacked a few to the boundary before being run out by a brilliant direct throw from square leg. Running between the wickets was good, especially considering it was the first match and we took as many opportunities as we could to pinch extra runs from quick singles, wides and no-balls. We bowled tightly (Harry M and Freddie R opening) and Freddie R took the first wicket with a quick and accurate strike in his first over. He picked up several more similar wickets later in the innings. Harry, Freddie H and Sam all took their overs well – Morgan claiming one wicket. Timothy and Henry E both bowled excellently and with great accuracy. Henry was unlucky not to bag a wicket and Timothy tied them up in knots with some devilish spin (and took one wicket). Special mention must be made to Freddie N who kept wicket with aplomb, even bagging the pacy deliveries from Freddie R. Well done boys a good start!
