Venue: De Villiers Field
SACS U/19B vs PAARL GYMNASIUM
SACS 2nd team won the toss and elected to bat first on De Villiers field in the declaration game against Paarl Gim.
It was a tough day for the boys as we lost 2 quick wickets. L. McMeeking and H. Byrne brought some steadiness with a good partnership before both of them lost their wickets before the drinks break. After the drinks break it was K. Greig that played a good knock for the team battling through the most part of the game.
Unfortunately wickets fell around Greig and we ended up bowled out for 110.
After lunch, the boys were fired up to improve their poor batting performance with the bat right with the ball and it led to some great bowling from the opening bowlers, captain L.Gibson and Byrne both took wickets in their first overs with Gim at 6-3. Some sloppy fielding let the boys down and Gim ended up chasing down the runs with 4 wickets down.
SACS 2nd team lost their first game off the season with 6 wickets.
