BRIXHAM CRICKET CLUB

2019 ALL STARS

COLTS V PARENTS

To coincide with the Cricket World Cup, currently underway,  Brixham Cricket Club hosted an inaugural match between Colts and their Parents at the Club .

14 Colts took on 12 parents in a match where the result was in doubt until the last ball .Clearly a number of parents had spent most of the summer practising their bowling in their back gardens and were able to restrict the colts to 103 in the overs allocated.

 Despite the Colts showing great respect for their elders when bowling ,a number of Adults clearly had a very good eye and were  very effective hitting 'across the line'.

Come the final over the Parents needed nine to win and with two balls left this had been reduced to seven .The penultimate ball sailed into the long grass for 6 leaving the scores level .As the fielders crowded in to stop the single a dot ball ensured the match ended in a tie at 103 runs each side .

Many thanks to all who took part in a very enjoyable afternoon which could well become a regular annual fixture
