Team Reports

Monday 15th May 2023
Wilson’s U14A’s came up against a strong and talented Whitgift U14’s in the Surrey Cup. On winning the toss Wilson’s elected to field. Some wayward bowling combined with powerful hitting saw Whitgift reach 198 off 25 overs. Disciplined bowling from Whitgift made it difficult for the Wilson’s batsmen to keep up with the run rate and ended on 97 for 4 off the 25 overs.

Royal Russell U13A won the toss and put Wilson’s into bat. After a slow start Wilson’s then capitalised on some poor bowling and finished on 128 for 6 off 20 overs. Standout batters were Viraaj (31 off 32 balls), Ashvik (35 off 23 balls) and Tejas (18 off 19 balls). A very good fielding performance saw Wilson’s put pressure on all the Royal Russell batsmen which kept them behind the run rate and were eventually bowled out for 67.
