Parktown U15a vs St Davids U15a

The 2nd Johnny Waite fixture. Can Nish's gents stay ahead?

The previous meeting of these two teams ended in a draw because of the weather. Parktown had demolished the St Davids batting attack, to a degree (as per the plan) and only had a 180 run chase in a 50 over format. The rain ended the game after 9 overs had been bowled and Parktown had a commanding start with a 69 without loss.

So today was going to be a case of finishing off what was started.

Already, on the flip of the coin, the choice to bat first by St Davids was a possible sign that they were playing to the storm that threatened in the clouds overhead. They knew our destructive bowling attack and certainly didn't want to risk losing all of their wickets in 10 overs for pitiful runs. So making Parktown bat meant that, if they believe our Bats could make a big target, then this game would run over into the storm.

Did Parktown heed to their reputation?
You bet ya!
A steady and strong rate of 6+ per over getting to 11 overs and the openers Ameer and Nick setting a good foundation of 72 runs. In step Shrey and Kai. They keep the runs flowing at a healthy rate. Both being taken out through sacrificial run outs. It's a great honour in having your wicket taken in an attempt to steal runs. You just need to know WHEN to make that decision to "Go for it" Nearly all the batsmen put down over a 100% strike rate to set the final total at 145/5 in 20.

St Davids needed more than 7 an over from ball one.
Their opening batsmen played the cautious approach, keeping their wickets and waiting for the bad ball. But the bad ball never arrived. Instead a spell of choking bowling that put a strangle hold onto the boys at the crease. The only overs where St Davids were looking in their rear view mirror were one and two. From there, the runs kept below the 6 required. In the 7th over did a wicket fall and then a steady rate of decline. Only one St David's batsman fought to keep hope alive but he was bowled straight, by Kellen, to knock him off his path to 50 runs.

Although never say never, we looked on track with a win and progression to the next two Johnny Waite fixtures in January
A win it was. 18 runs win was a comfortable margin. Now we are in a good space to get far in Johnny Waite.
Next fixture is in January vs Central

Again, well played Gents
