Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up
Stanley M was finally defeated last night as Sam P left with a clean sweep of matches.
In the first game, after a promising start, Rafe W collapsed to 27-7 against Stanley who scored 82-5 despite some excellent bowling from Rafe.
Rafe batted first again in the next match against Sam, this time scoring a strong 73-3 which he must have felt would be enough. However Sam batted really well scoring 94-2 to take the match.
Following that strong performance, the Sam v Stanley match was looking like it would be a thriller and we weren't disappointed. Deciding to bat again straight away, Sam scored 77-2 looking the most secure we've seen against Stanley's pace. That was a score definitely in Stanley's reach based on previous matches and he was always in the hunt staying about an over behind most of the way through his innings. Coming into the last over needing 11 to win, the third ball resulted in a dismissal which all but ended his chances. A great game and a fantastic performance from Sam who now tops the table.
