Tiffin School continue impressive progress in the Surrey Twenty20 Junior Indoor Cricket League
Tiffin School continued their impressive progress in the Surrey Twenty20 Junior Indoor Cricket League at Richard Challoner School by securing two wins on Friday night.
They came in both the Under 13 and Under 15 leagues, with the older team continuing to dominate the Under 15 league.
First up was Tiffin School Under 13s who leapfrogged opponents Epsom CC after a 30 run victory.
Batting first, Tiffin made 105 for 6 (all out) in 11.2 overs. Matthew Cormack’s 29, Arnav Jadhav’s 39, plus 37 in extras forming the basis of their total, in the face of George Compton taking 2 for 19 for Epsom.
In reply, his team reached 75 for 6 (all out) in 12.3 overs. Joe Baker top scored with the bat making 21 with 29 also coming in extras, with Prasham Sivagnanasundaram taking 2 for 7 for Tiffin.
There then followed two games in the Under 15 league as first School’s Under 15s came up against their Under 14 counterparts, which in a close game went the way of the former by only 13 runs.
Tiffin’s Under 15s batted first and made 151 for 6 (all out) in 14.5 overs. Ravneet Kapoor top scored with 62, adding to opener Huw Morris’ 48. Matthew Cormack took 3 for 28 and a catch, with Alex Cormack taking 2 for 32.
In reply, Tiffin Under 14s put up a spirited fight and fell just short of causing a surprise. After being 0 for 1, 1 for 2, 22 for 3 and then seemingly out of the game at 38 for 4, they covered well albeit to fall just short of the target, reaching 138 for 6 (all out) in 13.3 overs.
Max Burgess made 51 and Alex Cormack with 27 and together with 41 in extras came close to an upset. Kapoor returned figures of 2 for 36 went some way to denying them victory over their older schoolmates.
The final game of the evening saw a comfortable win for Wandgas CC over Southborough High School by 73 runs.
Wandgas batted first and set Southborough a target of 140 from their 15 overs, losing 2 wickets both to run outs. Franco Dean and Lewis Morrison made 28 and 27 retired not out respectively.
In reply, Southborough could only reach 67 for 6 (all out) in 12.1 overs. Joe Parkin was the only batsman to make double figures with 15 as Jacob Gladwell took 3 for 21.
