Well it was another wonderful day of Cricket at the Annual RCL Cricket day. The Swiss boys were particular impressive and certainly looked the part, it was just unfortunately for them, they lacked any from of ability with the bat or ball, they were absolute rubbish and were totally out played by every other team on the day.
As for Connect 44 team, there was a lot excitement and hype about this team, I personally thought these guys could be serious contenders for Trophy, but it was not to be. They were piped on run rate by Andreâ€™s team and missed out on a place in the final.
Then there was the VB team, who are normally very strong and usually power home comfortably at the end of each tournament, winning the competition for the last 4 or 5 years. This year it was another matter, as the day went on the boys (and girls) seemed to be coming down off the highs that had reached in previous years, they looked flat and tired and after posting only a modest total of 47 they could not hold on and were beaten in the final by Andreâ€™s team with 4 balls to spare.
So congratulations to Andreâ€™s team, for me they were the surprise package on the day, but they did have good blend of youth and experience and that should never be underestimated in game of Cricket. Well done.
