The Junior Cricketers hosted the British School of Paris for what was intended to be a Twenty20 match on Saturday. With long weekend holiday absences, both sides were so heavily depleted that a double wicket competition was played instead. 

Each pair batted for 4 overs, with the others fielding and the indefatigable Alisdair keeping wicket until it was his turn to bat.

Local pair Finlay and Logan won the day, hitting up 29 runs in their 4 overs. Finlay peppered the square leg boundary with some savage pull shots - which, given he'd been seen practising the shot from his Dad's throwdowns before the match, was not altogether surprising.

Close behind them came visiting pair Arsh and Daniel, who managed 25 runs and the only boundary of the day as the heat and the long boundaries for young players took their toll.

As is often the case in the early season, extras (especially wides) contributed heavily to the final score of most pairs and the bowlers will have to work on their accuracy ahead of our match against the very strong LFP Morangis later this month. A glorious exception was Nick, who was one of the few bowlers to hit the stumps - and with his first ball to boot.

We have places still available in the squad so it's not too late for your child to take up cricket. Training is each Saturday morning, 10-11 am for the U11s, 11 am-1 pm for the U16s. More details at www.saclub.org/children/junior-cricket.
