Match report Rain jinx robs U11s of certain victory?

The U11s have had a terrible run of luck with the weather this season, so it was a relief to arrive at the ground to see a beautifully dry wicket despite earlier rain. However, this wouldn't last long as light drizzle started almost immediately with the first ball, forcing the players off for an early tea after 6 overs of Headley's 20 over innings, then ultimately bringing the game to an untimely halt in the 4th over of Fernhurst's reply.

Playing a pairs format, the Fernhurst team fielded exceptionally well and restricted Headley to a net score of just 126 runs. That meant that Headley, starting on 100, scored a total of 66 runs, minus 40 runs for losing 8 wickets. Every bowler contributed to the effort, as Jack Kidd and Dominic both took 2 wickets, whilst Henry, Harry and Matthew took a wicket each. Ned managed a stumping and a run out, whilst the remaining bowlers Wilby, Joe, James and Louis went for a miserly 14 runs from their combined 9 overs.

In reply Matthew (4*) and Wilby (7) had taken the Fernhurst total to 114 after just 3.3 overs and a well deserved victory seemed within reach. Sadly, however, the weather had different ideas and as the rain poured down the players were forced off again. At this point it became obvious that the pitch was now too wet to continue and a few bedtimes were approaching too!

A great, if frustrating, start to the league season and we'll hope to repeat this level of performance when the teams meet to try to complete the fixture again.
