Quick run chases equal big wins in Surrey Twenty20 Junior Indoor Cricket League
The action at Richard Challoner School started in the Under 13 League as they made short work of beating John Fisher School by 5 wickets in double-quick time.
The latter were made 53 for 6 (all out) in 13.5 overs. Christen Rudrigo top scoring with 13 and Jake Miller making 10 as Alex Cormack and Rushil Raval took 2 for 7 and 2 for 8 respectively.
In reply, Tiffin School made short work of reaching their target, reaching 54 for 1 in only 6.1 overs. Raval making 17 not out and Matthew Cormack also unbeaten on 15 seeing them home to maintain second spot in the table and keep up pressure on runaway leaders Wimbledon CC.
Tiffin’s Under 15s then backed up their younger counterparts by beating Southborough High School by a similar five wicket margin.
Southborough High batted first and reached 54 when their sixth and final wicket fell after 10.5 overs. A strange quirk saw Jack Westley, Jake Waters and Tom Mcatamey all make 13 runs before being dismissed. Ravneet Kapoor took 3 for 14 and Alex Step 2 for 10 for Tiffin who then proceeded to reach their target in only 4.2 overs.
Step making 23 not out and Dillan Goss chipping in with an unbeaten 15 to see them to a comfortable victory which cements their position at the top of the Under 15 table
In the evening’s other game, Ripley CC Under 14s strengthened their position in second behind the leaders by beating third place Wandgas CC also by five wickets.
Wandgas batted first and made 64 for 6 (all out) in 12.3 overs, which was dominated by Tom Lillywhite’s 25 at the tail of the order and 31 runs coming in extras. Josh Thomas with 3for 10 and James Bell’s 2 for 11 key to their downfall.
In reply, Ripley reached 67 for the loss of one wicket in 6.5 overs. Olly Govey retired on 26 not out, with Bell adding 13 not out and 25 runs coming in extras.
