The lads of the 9A cricket team had a good win over Scots, setting a very respectable total of 236/7. I thought this was a decent target for Scots to try and chase down. The batting was done well with Cole scoring a monster 81 runs off just 80 balls, Jacob settling us down for a wee while and then Charlie scoring 39 runs off 41 balls to help see us through after a terrible start with 2 LBW dismissals very early for Liam and Kahu.
The day had its ups and downs with some patchy rain here and there which caused some delays in the game forcing us to come off the pitch and wait for the rain to pass. The game was stopped about 3 or 4 times during the 1st innings because of the rain and 0 times in the 2nd innings.
HIBS did very well during the 2nd innings bowling Scots out for 42 in just 22.1 overs, that’s only 1.89 runs per over! Kobe had an outstanding day at the office getting a 5 wicket bag for 9 runs and 7 wickets while he was bowling (2 wickets were runouts). The lads played very well against Scots today, let’s hope they can carry the same form over to the final game next year and see us go to Palmerston North to compete in the National NZCT competition.
