All girls were excited to play the match, we lost the toss so we went into bat first. Our batting was not as good as it could be but we managed to score 4 rounders in total, one from Avni’s fab ‘big hit’ – but most were given by their bowler for no balls.
Ardingly went into bat, some superb fielding from Jo, Reihaanah and Tash helped to keep Ardingly’s score down to only 4½ by the end of their innings, Rosie also managed an awesome catch just off third post. The half time chat was all about team work and keeping focused. As we went into bat there was an optimism amongst the girls that they could do well. Tash started well by scoring a rounder, but sadly we only managed 3½ putting our final total to 7½.
Ardingly stepped up their game in the last quarter despite continued excellent fielding and Sarena running everywhere! Final score was 7½ -11. A really good game girls well done.
Player of the match – Jo for superb bowling. CL
