WPHC 1/130 defeated Normanhurst-Warrawee Black 6/75 – match report to follow
WPHC Red 6/101 defeated WPHC Blue 5/100
In summary, a clash of our two U15 teams took place at John Purchase. The Blue team batted first and steadily accumulated runs.
Esha batted solidly to retire and later return and there was excellent support from Aliya and Tuvini.
With the help of sundries the Blue team made 5 for 100 will wickets shared between Ellen, Danielle, Amy S and Andrea. The Red team chase began with a first ball wicket and two others followed quickly leaving the Red’s struggling on 3 for 11 in only the third over after an excellent opening spell by Amy H and Ragini.
Danielle and Ellen batted sensibly accumulating runs and when both retired they had rebuilt the innings to 3 for 57 at the half way point. The Red team batted steadily but a flurry of wickets left them needing 14 runs off the last four overs with Ellen and Daniele returning to the crease as the last pair. With storm clouds building under darkening skies and lightening getting ever closer the last over was poised with 7 runs needed.
A couple of quick singles and then a four to get the Red team over the line with just two balls to spare and within minutes the heavens opened and the downpour hit. It was a wonderful game of cricket played with terrific enthusiasm by both teams and played in exactly the right spirit. A great advert for girls cricket.
