Cricket 14th June
Year 6 started their cricket season away against Marchwood in the county cup. They were very privileged to get to play at Langley Manor Cricket Club and experience playing cricket on a grass wicket.
Marchwood were a strong team with many of their players regularly playing club cricket out of school. Mateusz Marzeciak certainly gave them a scare when he took a wicket in the first over! Marchwood recovered well and despite taking 4 wickets Bassett Green could only hold the score at 294-4. Sonny Wint taking 2 excellent catches!
In reply Bassett Green started solidly and were resiliently refusing to give wickets away. Eventually the run rate crept up to an unassailable rate and despite Muhammad Mokhtar and Sonny Wint scoring 22 off the final 3 overs we could only reach 216-5.
Overall it was a fantastic experience for all the team and will hopefully give them all a stepping stone into their upcoming games. We play Shirley Junior School at home on Monday before the City tournament next Friday.
