Venue: Away

We played on the beautiful setting of the MTS Headmasters Pitch. The ground and facilities looked fantastic.

MTS won the toss and elected to bat. St Johns bowled well and contained them to a score of 113 for 5 off 20 overs. The standout bowler was Hamza with 1 wicket for 14 for runs off 4 overs.

It was a big outfield and a slow wicket but at the half way stage St Johns were confident of chasing the score down.

After a steady start from the openers and the score being 23 when we lost our 1st wicket, the run rate was already climbing and St Johns collapsed. It was a hard lesson to learn from quality MTS bowling but a lack of intent form the St Johns batsman is an area we will improve going forward. St Johns finished on 52-8 off 20 overs and unfortunately never threatened the MTS score.

Onwards and upwards, learn from our experiences and try to improve for the next game.
