Tring U15A win away at Berkhamsted
By George Bezani
Tring U15A finally get season off with a win
Wow what a game.
We won the toss and elected to bat. Tom and Jacob opened the innings and all looked good at 36/0 off five then 52/1 off 8 overs. It then went to pieces with only 32 runs added off the next 12 overs and 7 wickets conceded. So only 84 scored off the 20 overs, where we were looking for 120 plus. Three silly run outs didn't help but these things happen when you are under pressure.
To be fair to Berko they bowled well in the middle overs and kept taking important wickets.
We knew that although it was a small score if we bowled well we could still win, and Ed set the scene bowling one their danger men for a golden duck. Ed and Charlie W bowled really well for the first 8 overs taking 5 important wickets with Ed getting 3 and Charlie 2. On came Ben B and Harry G and Ben getting a wicket with a sharp catch from Finn Graham. Harry G bowling really well getting 3 wickets which won us the game. There was also a run out off Ben K's bowling.
It was a tense finish but we got the job done and now top the league with this win.
Due to the tight nature of the game not everyone got a bat or bowl on this occasion but they will in the future. Well done to everyone involved.
