Young fella cracked his first half century Friday night, 54 no after opening the batting. Had to retire after 25 balls, 34 no at that point. Came back in with 1 wicket to fall and proceeded to whack 5 boundaries in the next two overs.
Tried to retain strike at end of over, went for reasonably safe single but the runner at the other end was asleep and was run out.
Took a wicket in his second over, rank full toss knocked the middle peg out of the ground and had the batsman stepping back after the previous one went whistling through about shoulder high and quicker than anything he had ever seen.
Nice catch at mid wicket rounded out the game nicely.
Been called on a couple of times to fill in at U 14’s and is holding his own, took a wicket in his last game and was 2 no in a partnership of 16 at the conclusion of the game.
Coming along quite nicely.
