Cricket: Communication is the name of the game.

U10 A Team Cricket v King’s Hawford

What a close game it was on an afternoon that was perfect conditions for cricket at King’s Hawford this week. King’s St Alban’s batted first and only lost one wicket in their innings, with each batting pair playing well and managing to gain valuable runs for the team. There was good communication between the batters when running between the wicket, and Harry and Barnaby both had excellent boundary hits.

 

When it was King’s St Alban’s turn to bowl, the team did their best to keep King’s Hawford’s score as low as possible in the field. Ralphie bowled an excellent over taking two wickets in a row and Erin also had a great over bowling 5 dot balls. Going into the last over of the match, which Jack bowled, either team could have walked away winners but with a couple of unfortunate miss fields by King’s St Alban’s, King’s Hawford did well to narrowly win by six runs. Well done everyone!

 

U10 B Cricket v King’s Hawford

A great start to the cricket season for these Year 5 pupils. Peter won the toss and chose to field first and he opened the bowling with a very impressive over, giving no extras away. Ella had the best bowling statistics only giving 3 runs away and gaining a wicket. Mortimer also impressed with his accurate bowling, demonstrating good line and length. Emily and Conor batted first and set a good pace with 12 off the first two overs. Ella and Ace worked well together chasing the runs off every hit. It was a close match but our 5 wickets ensured we won the match by 11 runs. Well played all!

 

U8 B Cricket v King’s Hawford

On Tuesday many of our Year 3 pupils experienced their first cricket match. They were excited if and a little nervous to start but soon got the idea of it. They fielded first and I was very impressed with their bowling. Sophia only gave 3 runs away and gave no extras (wides or no balls). The best batting scores were from our second pair, Skye and Zara who scored 14 off their two overs. The result was a true reflection of how close the game was with us only losing by 3 runs.

A great start to the Yr3 Cricket season
