As most of you will know, there is not always a ‘result’ in cricket – a win or loss. For those avid cricket fans who actually want to know what happened today and how Oscar fared I can report this.
CWSCA lost the toss and were sent into field. Oscar bowled five overs and was 1 for 7. He got the scalp of Parramatta’s best batsmen and an Emerging Blue – one of the best bats for his age in NSW. He had one maiden over.
Parramatta was 9 for 142 with the last wicket falling on the last ball on the last of 50 overs. We did well in the field.
After lunch, the second innings progressed slowly. Oscar went in as no.7 and got eight handy runs falling to a catch off a ball he hit a little too high.
No.8 batsman Jazz – Kaye from Hay’s son – came in and did an awesome job, partnering with one of our middle order batsman Hugh in about the 38th over. They had a run rate of 6+ in the last ten overs winning handsomely in the 47th.
CWSCA victorious on the pitch and buffet.
Until my next cricket mum moment ….. xxx Carla
