2ndXI beat Strathallan

2ndXI beat Strathallan

A great afternoon in the sunshine

It’s been a long time since we played Strathallan at cricket and nice to reignite the fixture. After a bit of a diversion in getting there due to an unexpected road closure, we arrived and got started promptly with Ewan winning the toss and choosing to bat. Everyone got to bat and we scored a very impressive 171 for 1 with particularly good batting and running between the wickets from Ewan (19) and Freddie (20) who opened and then Chay who top scored with 34 from just 16 balls.

Our bowling began spectacularly with Artie clean bowling their opening batter with the first ball of the innings. Zain also took a wicket and he and Artie had the most economical figures only conceding 8 runs from our 4 first overs.
Then everyone was allowed an over each with Zak taking two wickets in two balls, setting up the chance of a hat trick with his second over. It wasn’t to be but Conrad finished off the innings with a delightful delivery, hitting the bottom of off. There were chances a plenty to bowl the home team out for a lot less but two no balls, two dropped catches and missed run outs from close range allowed Strathallan a little longer at the crease. Our extras were quite disappointing with 22 in total.

However, it was a lovely afternoon in Perthshire and everyone got to bat and bowl so what more can you ask for?!

Well played, boys but a special mention to Artie for his nicely played shots to the off side and excellent bowling which gives him a call up for the 2nd XI next week!
