More good news from Kevin…
Batting first Richmond where overwhelmed by Stoke’s strong bowling. The first four overs saw 4 wickets for no runs or extras. Jack R was deadly with his two overs, taking 3 wickets including a double wicket maiden supported by James M bowling 2 maidens with a run out. Marcus N then delivered 2 wickets for only 1 run from his two overs, an impressive start.
By the end of the 8th over Richmond had scored only two singles off the bat though were starting to be gifted a few wides. The pressure continued and more wickets followed with a run out off Jack T’s bowling and a wicket for Sam P.
Max B then secured a wicket & a run out from one of his overs, that sequence perfectly matched by George R from his final over.
With minus 5 runs for a wicket, Richmond ended their innings with a negative run score though were still in good spirits helped by their coaches and learning from the experience.
Stoke followed up with a sold batting display with Jared H, Charlie B, Oliver B and James M hitting multiple boundaries each.
The gross runs partnerships were :
Jack T & Max B* 17 runs
Jared H & Marcus N* 25 runs
Charlie B* & Sam P 23 runs
Oliver B & George R* 28 runs
Jack T & James M* 26 runs
A very good all round performance from every Stoke player especially Jack T in front of his visiting grandparents.
