The Colts A were back in Twenty20 action this week and keen to produce a positive result. Duke of Kent (DofK) batted first but Zach picked up a wicket in the first over which was followed by Toby doing likewise. DofK number 3 batted in an aggressive manner hitting 20 quick runs before being caught by Tom who produced a great running catch off the bowling of Andre. Our fielding looked sharp and we continued to put pressure on DofK. Chris and Dylan both held nice catches with Toby and Oliver orchestrating run outs. Yonis and Nabil bowled nicely at the end with Yonis picking up two late wickets. DofK finished on 57 all out. With the job half done the boys knew they had to bat sensibly to win the game. Unfortunately Toby played on in the first over but Andre (23* and Zach (17) batted very well in producing a partnership of 38 before Zach was caught behind square. Tom came to the wicket and he and Andre saw us over the line without any trouble. A good professional performance by us (words of the DofK Games Coach) giving the boys an 8 wicket win.
