Match Report
St John's School, Northwood Boys-U13A vs  St Paul's School
On: Wednesday, 16 Jun 2021
Venue: at Home

A tough day for the U13A boys against one of the strongest opposition we will play. A St Paul’s team with numerous county representatives batted first in scorching heat and started strongly. Freddie bowled well with the new ball but it was difficult to contain the free flowing opening batsman. The break through finally came when Arian clean bowled the inform boy with the score 92 off 7.2 overs. We carried on picking up vital wickets and slowing the rate. St Paul’s finally finished on 185/8 off 20 overs. Arian and Vishwadrik both got 2 wickets each.

In reply St Johns started well with Arian and Rayaan progressing the score to 29 in the 4th over before Arian was caught for 13. Wickets continued to fall and after a great catch on the boundary dismissed Rayaan for 11 the target was always a stretch too far. Aaryan showed some resilience with 12 but we finished on 72 all out. A hard fixture but the boys showed quality in parts and their attitude was fantastic and everyone tried until the end.
