On Wednesday saw us host Cumnor House who have a strong sporting reputation. Captain Ben V lost the toss and Cumnor elected to bat first. From the outset it was obvious this was going to be a tough match. The first pair put on 30 runs and we only managed to secure one wicket! However from then on we lifted our game with some excellent fielding and bowling. We managed to capture 9 wickets from the reamining four pairs which somewhat halted their scoring. Zak K was a stand out in the field taking 3 catches. Cumnor House ended their innings on 143. We took tea and then Copthorne replied to the Cumnor House total. We made a solid start thanks to Lani and Matthew E. They were followed by James H and Zak K who batted brilliantly for a stand of 33. The remaining pairs batted sensibly and managed to keep accumulating runs regularly. We lost 7 wickets in total which is a sign of how well Cumnor House bowled. However the last pairing of Oliver T and Andre K got us acroos the line for a comfortable 30 run victory! Final scores – Cumnor House 143 v Copthorne 173. A win by 30 runs. Man of the match was Zak K (double effort star). DM
