Middlesex u10s v Berkshire u10s - second match

Berkshire defeat Middlesex for the second time

In the second of two T20 matches, Berkshire batted first in an effort to give all the under 10 boys an opportunity to get more match experience. After losing an early wicket to the first of five run outs, Wiiliam Moss (23) and Sam Smith (who retired on 16) came together to put on some brisk runs. The second significant partnership between Gaajuran Ganagabalan (24) and skipper Eddie Campion (13 not out) took the score after 20 overs to 97 for 6, which might have been more had it not been for more run outs - perhaps more a reflection of youthful exuberance in the team's final fixture than a disregard for coach Jon Stewart's advice on wise calling.

Berkshire, confident of their ability to apply pressure on Middlesex whenever necessary, used eight bowlers in short spells, providing more players with an opportunity to demonstrate their bowling prowess. Regular spinners Eddie Campion (2 for 9) and Louis Stewart (2 for 8) restricted Middlesex to 13 for 4 in the first 5 overs after which a variety of aspiring bowlers were given the opportunity to shine. Only Patel (22) and extras (23) reached double figures, and Middlesex ended up on 86 all out, eleven short of the target but without any realistic hope of reaching it.

This was the under 10s last planned fixture, and the boys and their coach Jon Stewart were rightly proud of their record this season, with 8 victories in 13 matches and victory in the challenging Taunton Festival - not just for their successes but for the manner in which they gelled into a positive and skilled unit, full of energy, mutual support and respect for themselves and their opponents.
