Eight straight indoor league wins for Wimbledon 13s
Wimbledon CC made it eight wins from eight games to cement their position as leaders of the Surrey Twenty20 Indoor Cricket League Under 13 division at Richard Challoner School.
Their latest victims were Southborough High School who were beaten by 89 runs.
Batting first, Wimbledon set another big total for their opponents to chase, racking up 152 for 6 (all out) in exactly 15 overs. Pravin Kiritharan with 28, Robert Muir with 27 and Mike Anderson with 22 their main run scorers, with an additional 57 runs coming in extras.
In reply, Southborough High could only make 63 for 6 (all out) in 11.1 overs. Joe Parkin top scored with 10 and although 37 runs also came their way in extras, they fell well short, largely thanks to Sam Baker returning figures of 3 for 15.
Epsom CC are in second place in the table after winning a low-scoring match with John Fisher school by 13 runs.
Batting first, Epsom were bowled out for 46 (for 6) in 8.1 overs. Alex Minhinnick with 10 and Fraser Buchan-Davies with 11, plus 24 extras forming the basis of their innings, as Christen Rudrigo took 3 for 7 for John Fisher School.
In reply, they were bowled out for only 33 (for 6) in 8.2 overs. No batsman made it into double figures – or even past five runs, as 22 extras formed the basis of the JF total. Humzah Rahman and Euan Castledine with 3 for 8 and 2 for 8 proving instrumental in their downfall.
Friday’s solitary Under 15 game saw Tiffin school Under 14s overcome Ripley CC Under 14s by two wickets.
It was Ripley who batted first and they made 94 for 3 off their 15 overs. James Bell with 25 and Josh Thomas with 22 their leading runmakers.
In reply, Tiffin recovered from being 0 for 1, 9 for 2 and 19 for 3 to reach their target with just over three overs to spare. They made 95 for 4 with Matthew Cormack making 35 retired not out and Harry Pocock making 22 not out. Josh Thomas did his bit with the ball taking a useful 2 for 13.
