Four-Wicket Ben helps U11s to Victory
GREAT MELTON U11s beat MUNDFORD U11s by 29 runs at Melton Park in the South Norfolk Community League.
After Melton lost the toss and were put into bat they were given a good start with Ben Gaskin 25 and Corry Rushton 13 putting on 45 for the first wicket before Rushton was run out trying to take one to the keeper. Strong late order batting by James Cooper (not out 19) pushed the score on to a very healthy 99 for 4 of the 16 overs
An early break through by Ben Johnson, who ended with an impressive 4 wks for 2 runs off 2.3 overs, got Melton off to good start. All bowlers supported well with William Bailey being the pick of the rest with 2 wks for 11 runs off for 2 over. Good pressure in the field kept the runs down and with wickets falling at regular intervals with only Wakefield (26) and Long (13) putting up any real resistance. The last wicket fell in the 16th over giving Melton a well earned victory
