Match Report

     

Winning the toss, XL elected to field but, despite some early wickets, the College batsmen scored at a good rate. XL had hopes of restricting the hosts to a meagre score when Andrew Smith struck with 2 wickets, including the skipper Robinson for a well crafted 54. When Batchelor was caught on 64, the school were 6 down with only 130 on the board. Healey and Baillie then batted well and aggressively, and there was a well judged declaration on 213.

The XL response started slowly, and both openers were removed just as they started to accelerate, Rob Warne making a good 35. The strong middle order didn’t prosper against the school spinners, so XL were unable to keep up with the required rate. An unfortunate injury to Will Hawkins, who had batted solidly in a guest appearance, left XL in some danger of losing, but fortunately the lower middle order batsmen, marshalled by the captain, saw out the last 12 overs with few alarms.
