Clifton Cricketers

Our year 10’s attended a cricket cup match against a good Brinsworth side.

Dawood lost the toss and we were put in to bat opening up with Josh Woodcock and Dawood. After a few steady overs from the Brinsworth opening bowlers, Josh was bowled for 0 to a cracking delivery from Brinsworth’s most threatening bowler. In came Said who helped steady the ship with Dawood to a modest 39/1 from 10 overs. Both players played their selves in and started playing some brilliant shots putting on 80 runs from the next 6 overs. With Dawood stealing the show with a knock of 55 (including 7 fours and 2 sixes) and Said contributing 23 ( including 4 fours) pushing our total to 119/1 off our 16 overs.

With Brinsworth into bat it didn’t take our opening bowlers long to make inroads with Said breaking the opening partnership helped by a brilliant catch from Sohail. It wasn’t long until more wickets fell with Asif taking 2 wickets for 9 runs from his 4 overs. With Said coming back in the attack he took a further 2 wicket helped by 2 great catches by Josh Woodcock finishing with 3/18. With two overs left Luke Billen came into the attack and got the last 2 remaining wickets for 0 runs. Bowling Brinsworth out for 65.

All the lads played the game in great spirit and with great enthusiasm and will take some beating in the next round.

Massive well done to everyone that played, keep up the good work!
