Team Reports

1st XI v Dulwich College
Wilson's 1st XI played in their first two-day match against Dulwich College. The format was to play 96 overs each day in a one innings match. On winning the toss Dulwich put Wilson's in to bat. After a cautious start from Arjun (12) and Pranav (26) the Wilson's batsmen found it difficult to bat for long periods of time and through some indifferent shots wickets started to fall. Wilson's were bowled out for 88 off 47 overs. Excellent bowling from the Wilson's opening bowlers Pranav and Mustafa made the batsmen play and miss on numerous occasions. It was the introduction of Adam that broke the opening partnership and along with Daniel they continued to apply pressure on the Dulwich batsmen. After dropping a couple of difficult catches Dulwich passed the Wilson's total in their 49th over with 6 wickets remaining. All the Wilson's bowlers bowled with control but the standout bowler of the day was Mustafa with figures of 11 overs, 2 wickets for 20 runs. Unfortunately, Day 2 was abandoned due to rain.

1st XI v Forty Club
The Forty Club XI batted first and posted a score of 205 for 4 off 40 overs. Niruthihan picked up 2 wickets for 38 runs but Daniel was the pick of the bowlers bowling his 8 overs for 25 runs. The middle order of the Forty Club showed their experience in their last 10 overs by scoring 80 runs which got them to a competitive score. In reply, Wilson's gave a good account of themselves with Finley scoring a solid 55, Daniel hitting a brisk 30 and Udith a watchful 37. Unfortunately, Wilson's finished 22 runs short of victory.

1st XI v Wallington Grammar
In our last match of the season we played our local rivals Wallington County Grammar School. On winning the toss, Wilson's put Wallington into bat and soon had them in trouble. A wicket in the first over from Daniel was soon followed by the catch of the season from Daniel who got an amazing caught and bowled to dismiss Wallington's best batsman. Daniel ended with fine figures of 3 for 11 off 4 overs. The introduction of debutant Dylan finished off the Wallington batsmen with a disciplined spell of line and length bowling which was rewarded with him taking 3 wickets for 8 runs from 3 overs and Wallington finished all out for 76. The Wilson's batsmen Pranav (41) and Finley (27) made light work of the total and finished the match winning by 9 wickets.
