Vibrant Cricket between St Andrew’s and Queen’s College

The College 1st XI traveled to Queenstown on Saturday to play a vibrant Queen’s College team on a beautiful-looking Queen’s campus.

An earlier morning shower of rain meant the match format was changed to a 45-over match.

St Andrew’s won the toss and bowled well as a unit ensuring scoring was tough for the Queen’s batsmen on the moisture-filled pitch. Skilled cricketer, Ryan Denston showcased his ball-striking ability with a sparkling 45 runs and was well supported by Ross Fitzhenry with his patient 39 runs.

College maintained the pressure and leg spinner, Laurie Apps made the most of the situation, picking up 7 superb wickets for just 19 runs, including 2 caught and bowled dismissals, a superb googly, and a ripping 10th wicket delivery from around the wicket to the left-handed batsman Vijay George.

College’s chase in search of Queen’s 139 first innings total was not going to be an easy task. Queens picked up early wickets and will regret their missed opportunities when College were 66/3. In the end College scampered home to win by 6 wickets in the 28th over. Captain Murray Wilson played magnificently for College, his 56 runs coming off just 59 balls and Myles Sansom played the fluent supportive role securing College’s win with his 42 not out off 44 balls.

Thanks very much to Queens College for a superb day out and well done to all the cricketers for showing stamina and energy during the lengthy day of travel and sport.
