U9C Beat Old Basing
OGCC won a real humdinger vs Old Basing - by 9 runs
OGCC batted first and scored well. Great improvement at running byes, overthrows, quick singles (especially Oliver Groslin). There were some fantastic boundaries from Monty McCart, Freddy Wallis (2 awesome blows), Daniel Corfield, Thomas Orange, and Heston Gardiner (smashing a very high full toss over cover).
OGCC scored 332 - our highest of the season so far. Our bowling was solid. Monty Cross was a particular highlight - bowled straight and showed great improvement. Other notable performances were Oliver Fonseca, Heston, Thomas Orange and Luke Bramley. Monty McCart took a fine catch at wicketkeeper, Luke destroyed the stumps with a superb run-out, Henry Jananway had a tough batsman to bowl to and still managed to smash the stumps.
It all came down to the last over (Monty McCart bowling) and they needed a 6 off the last ball to tie. Monty forced a top edge and Thomas Orange took a good catch and queue the celebrations and pile up on the pitch.
OGCC won by 9 runs.
