Walmley U13B Once Again Hold Their Nerve Defending Low Total

Opposition: Handsworth
Venue: Handsworth
Competition: Warwickshire Youth Cricket Leagues U13 League (Group 2)
Date: Monday 20th May 2019
Report: Sap Chagar, coach

After being put into bat Walmley posted 89 which was below par for us as we were bowled out in the 17th over! We were 60-9 when Billy Bojan and Ben Carruthers came together who then put on a 29 run partnership to get us up to 89 which turned out to be the difference in the end.

With quite a low score to defend we had to bowl and field exceptionally well and we did just that taking wickets at regular intervals and eventually bowling Handsworth out for 51. Amazing bowling from Amy Carey four overs four wickets for 13 runs and Ellie Philips three overs three maidens two wickets for zero runs. 3 Maidens! Is that a first?

It was a great effort in the field to defend 89 and everybody deserves credit for that so well done everyone.
