Winchmore Hill U13 v Great Kingshill U13 - 22nd June 2016

Great Kingshill U13 travelled to Winchmore Hill on a heavy, overcast evening. Captain Ben Hobbs won the toss and quite sensibly inserted Winchmore Hill.

On a green, sticky wicket, we bowled a little short and a little waywardly and allowed the opposition to achieve 106 for 5, including 26 wides! Pick of the bowlers were Karthik Sadanand with 3 overs, 2 wickets for 5 runs and Michael Mackenzie-Crooks with 2 overs 1 for 1. Will Yeates also picked up 1 for 17 in his 3 overs and Teddy Payne 1 for 17 in 2 overs. I would also highlight Ninura Mohottige with 2 overs for 11 runs and Will Junnola-Schofield who bowled 1 over for 5 runs. Karthik caught two very good catches.

We made a solid start to our replay with Michael and Owen Collins putting on 39 runs for the first wicket, with Owen going on to score an excellent 35 (retired), which was a nice birthday present for him. The other batsmen, Karthik, Ben, Teddy, Jack Prior and Lasen Wanni-Arichchige kept us in touch with the target, but we entered the last over needing 10 to win. Some scampered leg byes and singles followed by a crisply struck boundary by Teddy, left 2 to tie, 3 to win off the last ball. The Winchmore Hill bowler keep his head and bowled a good ball, which although we tried to steal a run, resulted in a run out. So GKCC lost the match by 2 runs.

The team showed great spirit again and really played as a team. However, it was perhaps a game we might have won and I can't help thinking about all of those wides, not just because it gave the opposition 26 'free' runs, but also an extra 4 overs of balls to face.

It was great to see such a strong turn out of parents for the match, which was highly entertaining. A particular thank you to Alan Yeates for umpiring.
