Cricket action on Lower vs Grey High School

Grey High School won the toss on Saturday vs. St Andrew’s College and they had very little hesitation in opting to bat first on an expected sweltering day on Lower Field. St Andrew’s found pretty good areas with the new ball however Mathew Breetzke made good decisions at the crease for Grey and continued his rich vein of form for the summer with a well struck 74 off 99 balls. St Andrew’s College showed determination in the heat and with Grey on 108/3 with 2 new batsman at the crease the morning session was evenly poised. David Masterson (42) and Elnathan Mari (43) were however positive in their approach and jumped on to some lose deliveries after tea steering Grey into a positive position on 181/3. College then had one more fight back and went into lunch with some degree of momentum with Grey poised on 214/8.

Grey stood firm after lunch declaring on a well-played 256/9 in 84 overs. Simon Taylor picking up 5 wickets and James Quarmby 3 wickets for St Andrew’s College.
An afternoon run chase was perhaps a little out of College’s reach and they also had an awkward 30 mins to negotiate before afternoon tea in which they lost both their opening batsman. St Andrew’s College finished on 38/3 when rain abandoned play around 17h00.

All the best to Grey High School when they represent the Warriors Franchise at the National Schools T20 Competition in Potchefstroom on the 18 March.
