Today the team played well, batting and bowling.
We won the toss and elected to bowl. They reached 108 in their 20 overs with 1 of their batsman retiring on thirty. We chased down 109 with a few overs to spare and 6 wickets in hand.
Everyone who bowled, bowled well with: Harry, Jamie C, Rory and Alexander all taking 1 wicket each. As an area of improvement we need to bowl more on the stumps.
The Batting was good since the team only lost three wickets with Jamie C and Alexander nearly retiring; Jamie got 28 and Alexander got 27.
As another area of improvement the batsman need to move their feet a little more when batting.
In summary the team played well. Other areas for improvement in the field: backing up, taking the simple catches and making sure they get their entire bodies behind the ball.
For the 1st game of the season everyone played well; a GREAT win!
