The mid-season break was over and the Colts A team returned to action this week. On the evidence of the nets this week it looked like the boys had spent a bit too much time on the beach and not following the training schedule that was given to them before the break. As punishment for not training during the break I would like you all to read Geoff Boycott’s Book for Young Cricketers.
So to the game. Simply a case of not enough runs. Poor shot selection was the common theme as the boys didn’t do themselves justice on a pitch that had been juiced up by this weeks rain. Despite an early breakthrough, Avinash taking a wicket with his first ball for the second match running and Ben K picking up a couple of late wickets we couldn’t defend low total. Remember from your mistakes boys and work hard in the nets this week but most of all keep smiling and enjoying your cricket.
