Toby = 8 x 4's + 8 x 6's | Charlie Gaskin 2 Wickets (both caught Parker) but a good all-round team effort too...
After winning the toss, home side Shipton started knocking it out of the park from the off and all bar one of their 6 batsmen scored higher than all bar one of ours. They set a target between them of 157 which could have been higher, were it not for some key wickets from Charlie Gaskin and some low economy mature bowling from spinners Harvey Machin and Henry Simmonds.
I was a little worried tbh when Ben Sinton and James Churchill fell sooner than one might have liked on 14 and 16 respectively but Toby came in all guns blazing and ably assisted by a supportive Harvey Machin for much of his massacre, smashed 8 fours and 8 sixes into the wilderness not out 89 and pretty much won us the game. Everyone played their part of course and the fielding was fairly tight most of the time with a few very close run outs. It was entertaining cricket and another deserved win for the 17's.
Shipton under Wychwood CC - Under 17 B won the toss and elected to bat
