Match Report

In our first Day match for several years, EM batted first and after a steady start accumulated 109-2 after 36 overs. The pace then quickened and a number of useful partnerships based around Paul Sheppard’s knock of 69 and Ruve Leow’s run a ball 44 we progressed to 237-9 in 54 overs. The school responded in good style reaching 150-4 in the 30th over. At this stage, 88 runs were needed off the final remaining 11 overs which proved just out of reach as wickets began to fall. The chase was called off when the 8th wicket fell in the 39th over and the boys held on for an honourable draw 32 runs short of our total.
