U9 Boys' Cricket beat Strathallan

U9 Boys' Cricket beat Strathallan

Well played, boys!

Arlo, our captain for the day, lost the toss and the Strath boys opted to bat. We bowled two overs each pair, so each player got to bowl 6 bowls. I was very impressed with the level of skill that is clearly emerging from this group of boys. Each boy showed good technique and a growing awareness of how to position the body to get over a decent, accurate bowl. Our best bowler today was probably Hamish who managed to bowl out two batsmen with two cracking deliveries. Our fielding was also impressive. Michael made a couple of brilliant stops and we succeeded in running out their batsmen a number of times. What most impressed me, however, was our positivity in the field; all the boys were encouraging each other and praising each other, which creates a winning atmosphere on the team. After their overs, the Strath boys managed to score some runs but unfortunately they were out many times, which restricted their total significantly.

When it came to our boys’ turn to bat, they were prudent with their wickets and went after the ball to score some runs. Some glorious shots from Lochy started us off scoring many boundaries. With a shorter innings to score runs, each pair were gallant in their efforts to score runs and not loose wickets. We also ran fairly well between the wickets, with Arlo particularly showing great awareness of when to call an extra cheeky single to keep the score board ticking over. In the end, we managed to score 74 runs, which gave us a winning margin. Well played boys and keep up the excellent positive play.
