U14 Cricket vs. LGS Stoneygate
Leicester Grammar School U14 'A' XI 184-3 from 20 overs
Stoneygate U14 XI 51 all out from 16.4 overs
Leicester Grammar School won by 133 runs
At long last we were able to play an Inter-School fixture to start the Cricket season !
LGS batted first and set a very steep total of 184 for 3 off their 20 overs. An excellent opening partnership of 104 by Anish Das (50 Retired) and Keshav Sthanakiya (50 Retired) made life very difficult for the Stoneygate bowling attack.
A good unbeaten 36 from the Captain, Vashin Kaushik allowed a steep total to be set. In reply, Stoneygate tried hard to keep up with the run rate which was always a difficult task. Some wayward bowling by LGS didn't help their pursuit of wickets but Boris Dring, Anish Das and Robert Wardlaw all bowled well and took wickets. Some excellent catching by Keshav in the covers really supported the bowlers.
We look forward to our next match on Mon 24 May v Kings' School Grantham.
