Venue: North Parade
U15 Samurai v U15 Claymores
The Samarais recored an emphatic victory at North Parade on Wednesday as they beat Bath Claymores by 10 wickets.
Bowling first, our pace bowlers showed good control early on as the Claymores' stoic openers weathered the storm and began to find the boundary with some well timed strokes. Having reached 27-1 from 5 overs, skipper Charlie P turned to spin and it was to prove a master stroke as Twm picked up the dangerous Christian L LBW first ball.
Off spinners Twm 2-6 and Jesse 3-1 then combined brilliantly to stop the Claymores in their tracks, taking 5 wickets between them in 6 overs. They were followed by good spells from SLA Ollie W 2-2, and Leggie Charlie P as the Claymores were bundled out in a hurry for 50.
In response, the possibility of impending rain meant openers Wilf 29* and Charlie H wasted no time in knocking off the runs from just 5 overs to seal victory.
