U15 Cricket Festival at Maritzburg College

St Andrew’s won the toss and elected to bat on a wet and overcast morning. The batters applied themselves well and played a good innings. Bertram White top scored with 36 while Jake Coventry (22) and Oliver Myatt-Taylor (20) contributed with some handy runs down the bottom of the innings. In the end College were bowled out for 213 in the 50th over.

College started their bowling innings well with St Charles 11/2. St Charles added 110 for the 3rd wicket and at tea looked well placed to see their team home. However, Stuart Carr had other ideas and bowled a magnificent spell of 5/26 in 10 overs to secure a well-earned victory for St Andrew’s College. St Charles were dismissed for 170, St Andrew’s winning by 43 runs.

St Andrew’s 213 all out. (B White 36 M Poole 27 O Khayi 26 J Coventry 22). St Charles 170 all out (S Carr 5/26 O Snart 3/32).

St Andrew’s College won by 43 runs.
