Match Report

On a very warm and sunny afternoon at the superb Kingswood College sports grounds, XL had a convincing win with 4 wickets and 8 overs to spare in overhauling the School’s total of 178/7 declared.

XL welcomed some local debutants and also a guest player Willy Nicholls from NZ, all of whom displayed great energy and enthusiasm to lift our overall bowling and fielding performance.Notable contributions for XL with the ball were Sam Gunaratne (2/21) and Scyld Berry (1/26 before the final declaration over). A highlight was the under-bowled Rick Hutchinson getting a key wicket with his first ball, well caught in close by S Berry.

Jeremy Bond scored a rapid 72 in the middle order to see XL home after solid contributions from W Nicholls (24) S Gunaratne (24) and J Bensted (25), a great day had by all with the usual thanks to the College for the fixture and hospitality.

We look forward to next year’s fixture with Kingswood.
