Stumping: Jay

Another cold day and, despite losing our first toss, we were once again batting first. With a difficult wicket and a slow outfield scoring was always going to be tough, and so it proved as we struggled to 9-1 after eight overs. Then Aman got going, supported by Jay and Ritvik, with a mixture of big shots and tip-and-run singles. Dhruv chipped in at the end to get us to a competitive total.

Tidy opening spells to the bowling were only let down by some lacklustre fielding. Simple dropped catches and missed run outs looked to have proved expensive as St. Albans reached 93-4 ahead of the rate. However, a good catch from Ibrahim and a direct hit run out from the boundary by Ritvik turned the game. Nikhil, brought into the attack seemingly too late, destroyed the tail to achieve a narrow win.
