Berkshire Under 10 boys resume their winning ways

Impressive all round performance produces 120 run win over Wiltshire

Some last minute negotiations and great work by the groundsman at Blue Coat School enabled this match to go ahead in spite of threatening weather conditions.

Batting first, Berkshire started slowly against some sharp seam bowling by Wiltshire's Ashman and Weaver, with only Bailey Niblett and James Isbell reaching double figures among the first six batsmen to fall in reaching 63 in the first 19 overs. However, Elliott Saunders shared in stands of 20 (with Sam Smith), 34 (with Charlie Hunt) and 34* (with Max Meader) and remained undefeated on 32 as the innings closed on a very respectable 151 for 8 after 40 overs.

Faced with the daunting task of reaching a target of 152 on a slow pitch and slow outfield, the Wiltshire top order had no answer to the combined spin/seam attack of Connor Lamsdale and Elliott Saunders. Connor bowled four consecutive maidens to take 3 wickets for no runs, and Elliott took 1 for 5 in his four over spell. After these opening 8 overs Wiltshire were 6 for 4 with little chance of recovery. Although Ashman (17) offered some resistance, the other batsmen had no answer to the skills of Sam Smith, with 2 for 2 in four overs, and Max Meader, Charlie Hunt, Charlie Kingsford and Bailey Niblett, all with one wicket apiece who polished off the rest of the innings for a total of 31 runs in 25 overs, helped by 10 extras.

A great performance by the Berkshire lads and perhaps some sympathy for the Wiltshire boys who came up against a side who were at their best with the ball, in the field and with the bat.
