Saints Cricket U15A Thrash Falcon

Friday, February 15th, 2019 | Academic

Falcon won the toss and chose to bat on a pitch which was firm but a little 2-paced. They must have regretted that decision 20 overs later when they were bowled out for just 44 runs! The Saint’s frontline bowlers destroyed them with their best display to date with Mushon-ga taking 3 for 6, Chimhini 3 for 4 and Ditima 2 for 14. The bowlers were supported by some sharp fielding with 6 catches, including 2 great slip catches – in fact, no catches were put down.
Saint’s did not have to do too much to win the game and, even though the opposition bowled well, duly passed their total in the 11th over for the loss of 3 batsmen to win by 7 wickets. A T10 game was played to give everyone a bit more cricket for the day and Saint’s batted first scoring 99 in the allotted 10 overs. Mushonga top-scored with 30 retired and, in fact, only 2 batsmen were out as others were retired to ensure that everyone got a knock. In reply, Falcon managed to reach 80 runs before running out of overs leaving Saint’s winners again!
