Congratulations to our U15A Boys Cricket team, who are through to the County Cup final!
After Haileybury won the toss on a slightly overcast Tuesday afternoon at Lower Pavilion, the stage was set for a fantastic contest versus Hitchin in the County Cup semi-final.
Hitchin’s openers started assertively against bowlers Harry and Finn, but the opening stand was broken quickly by a game-changing run out by Tommy. A superb direct hit with two stumps to aim at. The team came alive. The boys bowled and fielded steadily, taking wickets at regular intervals. Hitchin finished their 20 overs 9 wickets down, having scored 114 runs.
Haileybury got off to a positive start in reply, with openers Leo and Henry playing some controlled but classy shots. Leo was the stand-out batter of the day, eventually falling just short of his 50, with the team needing two runs to win. It was the 69 run partnership between Leo and number 3, Blake, who, through a mix of hard-hitting and clever strike rotation, guided the team almost to the finish line. Hitchin were able to claim another wicket before Conway completed the job for the home side.
Well done to both teams for a terrific game! 🏏
