Form 6 A Cricket v Merchiston

First cricket match for 685 days!

Form 6 A Cricket v Merchiston Tuesday 11th May 2021

A group of Form 6 girls and boys excitedly head across to Merchiston for a game of cricket. In warm sunshine, we batted first and did well against some talented bowlers. Izzy and Tom hit the most runs with 15 from their 4 overs. We gave off a few catches unfortunately, which counted for -5 runs in this format. Scarlett and Maddie batted well, hitting some great shots and calling well to each other. In total, we scored 37 runs.

The Merchiston boys faced some ferocious bowling from our girls and boys and everybody showed technique and enthusiasm during their 2 overs. Tunrayo bowled a wicket maiden for the final over of the match! Slyvan caught a terrific catch deep in the covers and Felix managed a smart run-out. Lucy made some brave stops and threw well to Conrad at wickey. Freddie was fielder of the day, with some amazing stops. In total, the Merchi boys scored 82 runs.
