Cricket report - week 8

On Thursday the junior teams completed their t20 matches against Clayesmore with great success.

The U14A team scored 158 for 3 off 20 overs thanks to 38 from Dylan M and 36 not out from Captain Noah B. Clayesmore were then bowled out for 70 with Alex C taking 3 for 2.

The U14B bowled Clayesmore out for 37 with Toby GF taking 3 wickets for just 4 runs, and then knocked the runs off for the loss of just three wickets.

Finally in the U15A match Clayesmore set what seemed a formidable 161-5 off their 20 overs. However thanks to 41 from Finnegan Y and 90 off 58 balls from Johnny C, Bryanston got home with an over to spare.

On Saturday a relatively inexperienced 1st XI side took on the Bryanston Butterflies (Old Bryanstonians).

In a rain-reduced match, the Old Bryanstonians posted a highly competitive 188 for 5 in their 30 overs. In reply Bryanston made a solid start with a 59 opening partnership in 11 overs between Hugo H and Cam R. Five quick wickets to some canny slow bowling reduced Bryanston to 118 with just 7 overs to go. Captain Tom B and Ed M proceeded to score 68 off the last 7 overs. However in a thrilling last ball finale needing four to win, Bryanston fell one run short with Tom B making an outstanding 77 not out.
