Wendover U12 v GKCC U12
By Richard Bruton
Convincing win for GKCC in first league game of the season.
Having been put into bat by the hosts, GKCC started impressively with Will Stonehouse and Oscar Neil Dwyer scoring 53 in the first 4 overs putting the fielders under pressure with smart running between the wickets and striking 9 fours. After Will retired on 30 Oscar was out caught for 27. Jacob Rickett with 22 and Zac Gibson
making 25 not out enabled GKCC to reach 169 for 7 in their 20 overs.
The hosts found it difficult against opening bowlers Tristan Van De Weg
and Dylan Mayhew
with Dylan bowling an excellent line and length allowing only 4 runs to be scored in his 3 overs. They were backed up by good fielding, including difficult catches taken by Jack David
and Nick Stoian. With Zac and Nick taking 2 wickets each and Tristan, Jacob and Sam Pullan
chipping in with a wicket our hosts were restricted to scoring 79 for 7 in their allotted 20 overs resulting in a win by 90 runs.
An encouraging start to the season.
