The winning continues!
Another great win for Twyford against Hedge End making it 3 from 3.
Twyford won the toss and Jacob decided to field first. As with the first two games of the season the fielding was brilliant, lots of diving and commitment meaning lots of muddy knees (sorry parents for the washing!) Ellie playing in her first game of the season made an immediate impact with a brilliant direct hit run out. Congrats to Samuel and Tom for taking great catches. From a bowling perspective the accuracy was again brilliant. Rohan again leading the attack with 3 wickets (in one over!) with Tom and Jacob both picking up two each leaving Hedge End 257 for 9. Another great performance in the field and again well supported by the vocal travelling parents.
After a quick drinks and snack break Dan and Conor opened up the innings and got Twyford off to a steady start as we have become accustomed to from our opening pair. Michael also on debut for Twyford then shared the next pair with Samuel and Jacob and kept the scoring going, still without the loss of a wicket. Tom and Rohan continued with the assured batting performance and steadily accumulated runs. Maggie and Ellie batted as the fourth pair and batted with great confidence taking the score level with Hedge End. Samuel and Jacob then came in as the last pair to consolidate and take Twyford well above the required score and victory was assured. Special mention to Maggie and Ellie who batted resolutely against the best bowler from Hedge end who was actually swinging the ball through the air. The most impressive aspect of the batting this week was that we only lost 2 wickets. Jacob again top scoring with 14, taking his personal tally for the season to 69.
Our performances keep getting better as the season goes on, next challenge against Broughton.
Hedge End 257 for 9
Twyford 291 for 2
