U11C vs Solihull, 99-77 Win

It was a sunny afternoon for the U11C girls’ final cricket match all together. We won the toss and decided to field first. There was strong bowling and fielding from our girls, not allowing Solihull to score many runs. Despite her nerves going in, Yiran’s bowling was much improved, and she gave away very little during her over. We took 3 wickets in total through a bowled by Emma, and 2 run outs after quick thinking and throwing in the field from Siyona and Sofia respectively.

It was then our turn to bat. We needed 48 runs to win without losing wickets. Our girls played well, hitting the slower balls to make runs and defending where needed. Solihull matched our 3 wickets; however, we scored many more boundaries. Zahra put in a good performance using a sweep to the left effectively, Amelia and Siyona scored 2 4s each, Emily and Sofia scored a 4 a piece, and Mary put in a very strong performance, hitting 3 of her 6 balls for 4. After all of this, Hallfield scored a total of 84 runs, plus the 15 bonus runs for taking 3 wickets during our fielding which meant our girls were victorious with a 99-77 win. Emily was voted as bowler of the game and Mary was batter of the game. A wonderful high to finish on and lots of confidence as the girls progress to secondary school. Well done!

The game got off to a good start with tight bowling from Zia and Humaira giving away only 10 runs in the first two overs and also Humaira taking a wicket. Mark and Olivia continued with some good bowling securing a catch and a stumping within their two overs and limiting Solihull to 7 runs. The match progress well with some super, quick fielding, direct hits at the stumps and great backing up. Lucilla, Anshi, Kathryn, Mani and Parvaan all took wickets during their bowling spells. Solihull finished on 199. The upper order of batting weathered the storm of the first bowlers and added a few runs to the score. However, when Hana and Lucilla came in to bat they moved the score on significantly – Hana scoring a boundary and Lucilla a 6! Kathryn backed up this great batting with a boundary and a 6 and during the last over Parvaan also found the boundary. A great team performance for their final match saw the A team win 250-199.
