Strong Surrey team win close battle of the under 10s

Well organised Surrey team win with 7 balls to spare

On a sunny afternoon in North Maidenhead, Surrey put Berkshire in to bat on a lively pitch which helped their strong bowling attack. Berkshire started badly with the unlucky run out of opener Connor Lamsdale for one and dismissal of Aaron Lall for two. At 10 for 2, Sam Smith and James Isbell came together and with thoughtful shot selection and strike rotation added 85 runs before Sam was bowled by a shooter for 22. Elliott Saunders (30 not out), James (34) and then Charlie Hunt (13) moved the score on to a respectable 144 for 5 at 36 overs. The later batsmen, helped by numerous extras, took the score on to 169 for 7 at the end of the 40 overs. Surrey bowlers Tom Pitts (2 for 15) and George McC (2 for 8) were outstanding.

In reply, Surrey lost an early wicket to the excellent left arm spin of Connor (1 for 16 in 8 overs) but this brought star batsman Bali to the crease. He guided Surrey through some good Berkshire bowling, with Sam Smith taking 1 for 9, Charlie Hunt 1 for 17 and Max Meader 1 for 31, supported by the energetic fielding which has become a feature of the u10s side. Ably supported by Anuj (27) and Bailey Warren (24 not out), Bali ended on 64 not out, steering Surrey to victory by 6 wickets with just seven balls to spare.

Both sides will have learned a lot from this match, which was played in a great spirit in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
