2 from 2 for Twyford U9`s!
An enticing encounter was on the cards for the mighty Twyford U9s against a very strong St Cross team.
All started well , Jacob winning the toss and chose to field first. Rohan H again starting up with what would turn out to be an exceptional spell of bowling (4/13 with no extras!). The fielding again was spirited, epitomised by Robbie who grazed his hand in diving to save a definite four saying he would rather have the graze than let through the extra 3 runs. Special mention to Rohan for his brilliant direct hit run out and to Samuel for his great catch off a very dangerous looking batsman, also to Conor for his wicket keeping. Twyford restricting St Cross to 297 taking 8 wickets in the process.
Onto the innings break and an amazing selection of food and snacks for the players to enjoy from the Twyford parents, big thanks again for this!
Opening the innings again for Twyford was Robbie and Dan. Both batted really well, Dan in particular picking up 3 well executed boundaries. Next in Tom and Rohan who again accelerated scoring, Rohan picking up 4 boundaries and Tom 1. Conor and Rowan in next and consolidated, Rowan picking up 2 boundaries. Last pair in was Jacob and Samuel, and the run fest began. Samuel hitting 3 boundaries and Jacob in exceptional form smashing 2 big sixes and 7 boundaries on his way to a brilliant 41.
Twyford winning by 19 runs against a really strong St Cross team. Big thanks to St Cross for a great game!
St Cross 297 for 8
Twyford 316 for 6
