On Wednesday, two teams travelled to KEQMS to play in our last Cricket fixture of the year.
The A team batted first and got off to a great start, with the first two pairs made up of Oliver and Matthew and Harry and Daniel scoring 32 and 34 respectively. This was added to by the rest of the team with some graceful shots from Hamza and a big six from Max. We managed to set a final total of 128 runs. Hamza opened the bowling and managed to get two wickets with his first two balls and when bowling for his hat-trick ball he produced a yorker which the batsman only just managed to defend! He followed this up with a direct hit on a run out. He was awarded man of the match for his fantastic all round performance. The rest of the team all supported well, with good accurate bowling; a massive improvement on our previous performance. The match ended the same way it started, with Ollie taking two consecutive wickets; he was unlucky not to get a hat-trick with the final ball of the match. KEQMS only managed 52 runs which meant a convincing win for Highfield by 76 runs.
This means that Highfield has now been undefeated at Hard Ball Cricket for two consecutive years. An incredible achievement, boys!
Highfield also managed to win the B Team game with a comfortable victory by ten runs. Although all the team performed well, Calvin and Cameron were particularly impressive with the bat, scoring 32 runs without losing a wicket Qasim and Aryan were the pick of the bowlers, taking several wickets. Congratulations to all the boys who took part!
