OTs & Romsey v Lymington U11A

Heroic 8!
Well done Lymo… we had a seriously depleted team of just eight players for our match with OTs & Romsey.Batting first OTs & Romsey scored 101. There was some great bowling with wickets from Alex, Ted, Nell and two from Ben…brilliant effort Ben you must be so pleased. Many are still bowling a lot of wides (20) so we need to keep working on our accuracy. There was some superb fielding with a great run out by Jamie… a direct hit on the stumps. We need perhaps to work a bit more on throwing in the ball; in the heat of the moment we had a few overthrows.

We replied with 85, including significantly less extras than we had given them. Our batting is improving every game. Topping the scoreboard was Jamie with 20 and Nell with 19 not out. Some gigantic hits from Captain Ted meant he was next higest scorer with 13. Lots of other steady performances helped keep our eight batters in for all but three balls of the 18 overs against a full team of fielders. A lovely smack from Jakob in that lot…shame they caught it, it was the other scorers son and was his first catch ever…how unlucky! Tamasin: good effort facing the fastest bowler Sluman…you stood up to him well.

Their player Sluman had a great day taking three of our wickets (including a wicket maiden) and a catch – tough competition indeed!

Well done Louis for joining in even though you obviously felt terrible (green really isn’t your colour!)…. hope the four you hit as the last shot helped make up for the rest!

Lovely control of the field by Captain Ted and impeccable behaviour from the whole team meant today was a lovely match to watch as well.
