College Cricket tour to Zimbabwe – St George’s College T20 Tournament

The St Andrew’s College 1st and 2nd XI Cricket teams returned to Zimbabwe after a 2-year gap in their tour schedule. After a series of successful warm-up fixtures, all the players were fired up for the St George’s College T20 Tournament. The 2nd XI did extremely well to progress into the Trophy section play-off matches finishing in 6th place. The 1st XI earned their way into the final vs Peterhouse. Peterhouse won an important toss and posted an above par 158/4 total for St Andrew’s to chase. St Andrew’s responded magnificently and were all set for victory on 128/2 in the 15th over. Zach Micklewright (74 off 45 balls) and Alex Griffin (51 off 48 balls) created the opportunity for a St Andrew’s victory, but the Peterhouse boys wrestled their way back into the match on the spinning pitch, and the match finished in a dramatic tie.
In the Super Over St Andrew’s posted 13 runs, but Peterhouse were up for the challenge and with clean ball striking secured Peterhouse the victory.
Thanks to all the players, parents, and coaching staff for another superb cricket event. The teams will have much to reflect on, and their experiences will help prepare them for future challenges.
