The Under 14 reds were at home in the second week of a 2 dayer against the TTG 14’s, having bowled them out last week for 157. This week we needed to bat well and score a little over 2.5 runs an over to get us home. The weather was overcast but dry when we started and so we went out with some confidence in our ability to get the runs. A couple of early wickets though and our confidence started to wane. The TTG boys bowled quite well but caught and fielded superbly and we were struggling. Then it started to rain lightly. By tea we were in a spot of bother at 6 for 70 odd, but the rain was steady and we all thought a delay was certain. Our umpire had other ideas though and in a downpour after tea we started again. 30 minutes later, after constant rain, the game was finally called with Luke Pedlar looking really good on 36 and Sam Bruce staying with him at the other end on 4. Finishing at 6/87, the draw probably a favourable result for us in the end.
