U15A v Whitgift
Wilson's U15A came up against a very strong Whitgift U15A team in Round 2 of the ESCA T20 Cup. Whitgift batted first and in the first six overs of the powerplay they scored 65 runs. This set them up for a large total where they finished on 204 for 4 off 20 overs. Pick of the bowlers were Nithushan (2 wkts for 18 runs) and Ahrujan (4 overs for 21 runs). Both bowled a controlled and disciplined spell when the Whitgift batsmen were looking to increase their run rate. Our fielding was not at its best and the Whitgift batsmen punished our bowlers after having several catches dropped. 204 was always going to be difficult to chase down. The Whitgift opening bowlers by comparison only went for 25 runs off their first six overs. A combination of good bowling and excellent fielding kept Wilson's behind the run rate required. Ahrujan (67 from 67 balls) showed real class with the bat but it was not enough to trouble the very talented Whitgift team.

U14A v Glyn
On winning the toss Wilson's elected to bat on what seemed to be a very slow and low wicket due to the amount of rain earlier in the week. The Wilson's batters found the conditions difficult with the ball keeping low and not able to strike the ball with any consistency. Ashutosh (25) and Aarush (20) put on a valuable partnership with some excellent running between the wickets to get us to a total of 115 for 7 off 20 overs.

Glyn's reply started slowly due to some controlled bowling from Shravan Ganesh (1 for 4 off 3 overs). It was the leg spin from Ansh that changed the game by taking 3 wickets for 12 runs in his 3 over spell that kept Glyn to 96 off their 20 overs. This gave Wilson's the win by 16 runs.

U12A v Trinity
Wilson's U12A came up against a strong Trinity U12 team in their Jubilee Trophy Cup match. Trinity batted first and scored 155 off their allotted 20 overs. Wilson's reply never really troubled the Trinity total. A lack of match experience in chasing a large total showed and were bowled out by 99.

U12B v Trinity
Trinity scored 137 for 9 off their allotted 20 overs. Wilson's reply fell short by 49 runs and were bowled out for 88. Only Shourya showed any resistance with a top score of 17.

Congratulations to Ahrujan (banner photo, above) for being selected to play in the Sports Fixtures Hobbs Trophy at the Oval Cricket Ground on Thursday 10 June.

The Hobbs Trophy named after Surrey and England legend, Sir Jack Hobbs, is an annual contest held at the Kia Oval. The Trophy is contested by the U15 Surrey Schools Cricket Association (SSCA) and the London Schools Cricket Association (LSCA).

We wish Ahrujan all the best for what will be a memorable experience.
