Northwood 1st Team Cricket Victorious vs Thomas More

Northwood won the toss and elected to bat first . Northwood started off at a brisk rate with Brent Phillips timing the ball exceptionally well and made a quick fire 20 off 14 balls. After this Northwood kept losing wickets with only Blayde Capell (31) really contributing with the bat. Thomas More bowling was very disciplined and Northwood batsmen where not patient and gave away some really soft wickets. After 40 overs Northwood reached 163 .

Thomas More batsmen were under pressure from the start as Northwood opened with a spin from the one end. Alex Wright bowled 8 overs and took 2 for eight. After the success that Alex Wright had, Northwood brought on Shahid Cariem who took 3/25 off 8 overs. The bowling was backed up by some really good fielding with Brent Phillips and Kyle Rawling bringing off two excellent catches.

Thomas More were bowled out for 120 runs and Northwood won by 43 runs.
