Under 11’s vs Purnells
Midsomer Norton CC Under 11’s had their first real competition of the season. After beating Purnells 1st at the start of the season, MSN thought they were in for an easy win; however, were they wrong. Purnells came back fighting, with a great opening over taking the first wicket of the game. This did not phase MSN, with Flynn C and Henry sneaking quick singles and putting the pressure back on Purnells. MSN then had a stable couple of overs, with Logan, Toby, Charlie and Flynn B, protecting their wicket and snatching a few runs where possible. With MSN score looking low, they knew they were in need of some big hits – Ronnie and Elliott were up to the job though. Between them they managed to get 4 fours in one over, with quick running between the wickets, finishing up with a partnership of 47 runs!
Purnells come in to bat, chasing 251 runs. Elliott bowling the first over, starting with a dot ball, followed but a cracking bowl taking middle stump, and the first wicket of the innings. After that the wickets just kept coming – 1 from Logan, 1 from Toby, 1 from Flynn B and 2 from Flynn C. Coming down to the last over, 241-251 with one wicket needed. Ronnie was up to bowl the last over, starting with 2 dot balls. As the tension was building on the third ball, he got that final wicket that was needed – leading them to winning the game.
Team: Elliott, Flynn C, Ronnie, Logan, Flynn B, Charlie, Toby and Henry.
