The Rock U17s were the first of our juniors to get their season underway tonight. Rock won the toss and decided to bowl on what was a lovely evening for cricket. Our openers bowled tight lines and didn’t give the batters many bad balls to hit. During the middle overs, Wath started to build a bit of momentum until Rock’s own Shane Warne (Noah) returned his best ever figures of 5 for 9, leaving the Wath batters bamboozled. Wath reached 77 for 6 in their 20 overs.

Then out stepped Rock’s reliable openers, Izzy (24) and Ekky (20), who got off to a good but steady start and set a decent platform for everyone else. After a flurry of Wath wickets, Rock started to falter. But then in stepped Lucas with a Ben Stokes-like innings, which saw Rock over the line with a cracking four on the last ball of the game.

Lots of positives to take from the game and lessons learned on how to chase a low score in tricky conditions. Onwards and Upwards. UTR!
