Sunday 2nd August 2020
A lovely Sunday afternoon for cricket at Briar Avenue, Streetly CC main ground. Streetly had 10 players who wanted to play, so we also managed to get 10 players to play. Same rules as 8 a side pairs cricket but with another pair. The boys were disappointed not to be playing with a hardball, but they were soon excited just to be playing cricket. Bryan captained the side losing the toss and being made to bowl first. Streetly put on a total of 224. Daniel bowling accurately and taking his usual 2 wickets per game. Jibril brilliantly taking 2 caught and bowled wickets. And Thomas and Tommy bowling well at the death taking 2 wickets each.
Walmley comfortably finished on 264 with Ariyan and Thomas both scoring 7 each and Dylan with some wonderful strong running between the wickets scoring 11.
We are looking forward to the return fixture this Wednesday at Court Lane.
