TRCC 'Thunder' vs. Sonning - May 7th 2017

An historic day!

Sonning won the toss and elected to bowl.  The Twyford innings got off to a steady start with only 1 wicket lost in the first 8 overs.  The second half of the innings built on the start and accelerated with Max B & Morgan hitting 5 fours in their partnership of 28.  Samuel & Matthew carried it on and Max H & Tom H also scoring 28 to finish the innings off, Tom weighing in with 20 of those runs.

The Sonning batsmen were not able to score freely off the Twyford bowling which, although much better than Friday, still gave away 60 runs in extras.  The bowling was nonetheless still accurate in parts and the bowlers reached the target they were set of taking 6 wickets.  The slow scoring rate off the bat was also due to a much improved fielding display from everyone, led by Max H who had a direct hit to get a run out and took a great catch off his own bowling.  We had 4 bowlers this time who managed an average of no more than 1 extra per over; Max H, Oliver, Tom H and Will.

Twyford Thunder 295 - 3, Sonning 259 - 6

A really good win!

The man of the match award went jointly to both Max B and Morgan for their terrific batting partnership which really upped the tempo and shaped the innings.  And this was from the 2 youngest boys in today's team!  Well done Max and Morgan
