U15a vs St Davids Marist Inanda

The Toss, our way, match done, rain messes up the plan

Parktown knew the weather report.
Cricket requires the ingenuity of knowing all the conditions to work in your favour.
All predictions pointed to match over by 14:00. 100% chance of rain.

The plan... win the toss: bowl first. Get them out cheaply: get the runs before the storm

These U15's not only have a very talented bunch of bowlers and a sharp fielding unit, but also a power batting line up. Should we have gone into bat first we would have, most likely, seen out the 50 overs and put the game into the middle of the storm.
A win is what is required.

What happened?

  1. We won the toss
  2. We put St Davids into bat
  3. We took 7 wickets for 74 runs
  4. ...opps, the 8th wicket partnership makes 91 runs

Was it a great performance by a resilient batting pair? Or the slacking off by Parktown's bowling attack? Spectators and coaches certainly leaned towards a lack of discipline with the over-confident start. With the 7th wicket falling in the 15th over, the game should have been over by the 20th over and with a 100 target set to chase.
There were fielding errors, dropped chances, missed stumping and a shocking amount of extras given away. 51 extras in total.

After breaking the solid partnership and dismissing both of the St Davids "White Knights" in 4 balls, the rest of the batsmen scraped together another 15 runs before being bowled out for an early lunch. They had managed to bat through to 33 overs. This had stretched the time in the field. 181 was the target set. Could the weather hold out for Parktown to chase the total?

The clouds still hung heavy when the Parktown openers took to the crease.
With some classy straight drives, classic cover drives and spectacular pull shots, the pair looked comfortable and solid in making the 63 run partnership before the lightning called them off the field. The thick rain finally fell hard enough to call the game with only 9.2 overs being bowled. The rules state that 20 overs are required in the 2nd innings to constitute a complete game and the score can be calculated from there.

Disappointment all round, in a game that was stacked in the favour of Parktown by the 9th over.
The first game brought out some great positives. Of which, the biggest, is about how well these boys work together and gel together as a unit.
