Bells Yew Green
30 Jun 2013 - Mike Wright
Bells Yew Green (BYG) visited Vine for their U13 game on 30/06/2013. The sun was out and the day was perfect for cricket. Captain for the day was M Philps.
BYG won the toss and elected to bat. T Tapp and H Bull opened the batting and enjoyed a fine opening partnership of 65 runs off 15 overs. Although the Vine bowlers were not rewarded with wickets, the run rate was less than 5 an over and kept the pressure on. A mix up on a leg bye and C Wright sent Tapp back with a direct hit. M Smith had Bull caught and then repeated the achievement with the BYG #3 batsmen. C Bryant bowled the next batsmen and then M Philps forced a run out and then a catch to restrict the BYG to 92.
Vine took to the field with a revised batting order opening with M Philps and M Smith. Philps was sent back without scoring bringing C Bryant to the crease. Bryant played a fantastic innings (36) with support from S Chitty (10) and J Phillips (14).
The total was reached in the 16th over with the help of 16 extras.
Man of the match was an easy choice – C Bryant.
