Yesterday evening Year 9 & 10 boys visited Winterhill school in lovely sunshine.
We were put into bat first and started in determined fashion. Dawood Rafiq and Haidar Ali started building up our total. Unfortunately this didn’t last as Haidar was caught and bowled.
Josh Woodcock came into bat and steadied the ship while Dawood remained a constant presence. Josh made 13 before succumbing to a catch. Farad Qanbari managed to make a further 9. The star of the show though was Dawood who knocked off an impressive 42 runs (including nine 4’s) before he too was caught. We managed a good total of 92 runs.
Winterhill started with a faster run rate than we had managed and for a time threatened our total. Once more Dawood impressed by bowling some sensible overs and limiting the hosts tally. Nathan Murr came in to bowl and took 2 wickets in his first over. This appeared to break the resolve of Winterhill who didn’t seem to have many other run scoring batsmen. They finished on 74 for 4 with Farad taking a wicket with the very last ball of the match.
Another pleasant evening and once more a pleasing result. Well done!
