A fantastic game of cricket on a beautiful sunny morning at Faulkner's. Our lads put on a competitive 116/6 in their 20 overs with Joe and Yuri once again batting strongly after some early wickets.
Our bowling was tight from the off and we soon had Long Ditton in trouble, Lucas taking two good wickets. Some strong batting saw our opponents re-gain the advantage with the fast outfield and they were well placed at 72 for 2 off 10 overs. A sharp run out by Dylan broke the partnership and a wicket from Connor got us back in the game. Riley then took a catch off Joe but with their best batter still at the crease they looked good to win the game with 3 overs and 16 runs to go. Lucas and Jacob returned and bowled tight overs leaving 7 to win off the last over. A boundary off the first ball followed by another wicket from Connor (caught Jacob) left scores level ahead of the last ball. A scrambled single just got Long Ditton over the line. Some disappointment but a really excellent effort in a game the boys can be proud of.
