Under 9As Cricket v Cottesmore

We lost the toss and were put in to bat.

Copthorne made 281 runs in our 20 overs, losing 6 wickets.

Cottesmore had three or four useful bowlers who caused some problems for us, but our batsmen were able to capitalize when the weaker bowlers bowled.  Our best batsmen were Bradley with a fantastic 29 runs off 16 balls, Zac with 24 from 16 and Charlie with a stupendous 23 from only 8 balls!  Charlie and Bradley both hit sixes over the rather close leg side boundary.  So we set Cottesmore an imposing target to chase.

In reply Cottesmore made 176.

Our hosts struggled with the demands of the run chase in the hot sun and we bowled and fielded pretty well.  Our most successful bowlers today were Amardip with 2 wickets for 6 runs off his 2 overs, Zac who got 1 for 5 with some nice leg-spin, and Luke and Fred, who both took 1 for 8.

So a comfortable win for us by a margin of 105 runs.  Well done boys!
