Extras Costly for Boys in Their Second Tour Game

Extras Costly for Boys in Their Second Tour Game

Although this was a better fielding display, SA conceded far too many extras unfortunately and our batting couldn't save us this time.

Fielding first again, Ludo and Max opened the bowling and after a strong start, were a little costly. A slight knock to Jack's ankle meant he could only bowl one over and our suport bowlers were far too expensive. Henry T steadied the slump and finished his spell with superb figures, 4 for 6 off 3.1 overs.

Set a target of 124, the boys were confident in chasing it down but unfortunately poor shot selection meant that wickets fell regularly. Toby C batted well again for his 31 and Jack P came in at number 8 and made an excellent 21. Their total always seemed 20 or 30 too many and that proved to be the case as SA were bowled out for 103 in the penultimate over.

Disappointing to lose a game we definitely could have won and the boys will need to pick themselves up as they face a much tougher challenge against a Barbados select XI today.
