2nd X1 v Whitgift

Whitgift batted first and scored 166 off 20 overs. Some untidy fielding and several dropped catches helped Whitgift post a competitive score. Pick of the bowlers was Ammaar with 2 wickets for 9 runs off his 4 overs. This was always going to be a tough total to chase and only Arnav showed any signs of form by scoring 24 runs. 15A v Whitgift – Wilson's batted first and scored 115 off 25 overs (agreed to bat an extra five to give us more batting and them more bowling time). Han Joon and Hriday played very well with the bat, steadying the middle order and Han Joon top scored with 32. Whitgift were too clinical with the bat and chased down the target in the 15th over. The boys can take some positives from this match which was a good test for their first game.

14A v Whitgift

After a positive start of 41 by the Whitgift opening batsmen, Wilson's bowlers got the breakthrough they needed and slowed the run rate in the middle part of their innings. A partnership of 44 in the last remaining overs helped Whitgift to a total of 138 off 20 overs. After losing Ansh in the first over Atharva and Abhi steadied the innings with a partnership of 48. After losing Abhi for 35 Shravan came to the wicket and scored 52 including a 6 off the last ball to win the game. This is our first win against a Whitgift A team. 13A & 12A & 12B v Epsom College – Wilson's came up against very strong Epsom teams especially in the batting. Pratham for the U12A batted exceptionally well and scored 53. In a pairs Pictured above: 1st XI team. match our 12Bs won by 61 runs. The difference between the two B teams was that Wilson's bowled extremely well with a disciplined line and length.1st XI National T20 Cup – The boys had a rollercoaster of a day. In the first match Wilson's played Whitgift and scored 128 off 20 overs. Ellis set the tone by scoring 30 off 17 balls, Arjun scored 29 in the middle order which helped us post a competitive score. Whitgift started positively and it was spinners Daniel and Arjun who changed the game. Bowling with both control and discipline put the Whitgift batsmen under a lot of pressure and was rewarded by taking 4 wickets between them to win the game by 16 runs. This is the first time Wilson's 1st XI has beaten Whitgift 1st XI. In our second match Trinity batted first and scored 126 for 6 off 20 overs. Pranav was the pick of our bowlers by taking 3 wickets for 8 runs off his 2 overs. Only 5 boundaries were conceded but we could not contain them from scoring a competitive score of 126. Trinity put a lot of pressure on the Wilson's batsmen by using 4 spinners in their attack. Only Pranav (25) and Arjun (16) showed any resistance and unfortunately Wilson's were bowled out for 83 and lost by 43 runs.

1st XI v MCC

Our match with the MCC is always a strong encounter. With this in mind when Wilson's won the toss they elected for field. After an opening stand of 87 Wilson's maintained their discipline in the field and bowled tightly to restrict the MCC to 228 off 40 overs. Arjun was the pick of the bowlers with only having 28 runs scored off his 8 overs. After losing an early wicket Pranav and Finley (44) put on 94 for the second wicket. Pranav continued to bat through the innings to keep us in with a chance of a win. Good support from the middle order batsmen got us to requiring 26 off the last over. Some powerful hitting and a couple of expensive wide balls got us to just 4 runs short of victory. Pranav was undefeated on 111 and will be invited to a Test Match next year for scoring 100 against the MCC.
