Another lovely morning to be playing cricket 🏏
Saturdays match was against Osset where we played a 10 a side pairs format to allow as many juniors as possible to get some game time in!
Holly Boland was team captain today for the first time. Carlton lost the toss and Osset decided to field first.
Joe and William were up first and scored and impressive 26 including 2 great 4s for Joe. Henry and Maxwell were up next who followed up with 16 runs each with some excellent team work. Harry and Noah were batting for the first time together as a pair and manged 23 between them. Could be start of a good partnership! Our final 4 batters were Mazie, Eve, Holly and Oscar. This was only the second game for some of these and it was great to see them out there enjoying it. There was a few wickets taken but this was countered by some excellent runs overall. Credit to Osset also who bowled very well throughout the innings 👌
Some good fielding on show from the team. A 20 over game means you are out there for quite some time but the team did an excellent job keeping focus especially in that heat. Carlton worked hard at getting the ball back to the stumps as quickly as possible which was something we spoke about before the game. 6 wickets were taken overall by the team. A extra special shout out to Mazie and Oscar who got their first ever wickets. Excellent!! Hopefully first of many.
A final thanks to the team for volunteering to field for Osset as they were short of a couple of players.
It is great for us to see the juniors develop every week. They have come a long way in a short time! On to our next one
Final score Carlton 253 Osset 281
Well done to both teams!
