Primary Cricket 2012
Patana Primary Students Bat and Bowl in Kwik Cricket Fun Fest
On Sunday 20th May eight of our promising young cricketers took to the field at the British Club for their inaugural Kids Cricket event. Our team had been invited from our Term 1 Kwik Cricket ECA and from talent spotted during our “Try a New Sport” week in January. The boys were nervous and excited as were their Coaches for the morning of Mr. Morgan and myself.
After a brief warm up in the nets we were on for the first game against the British Club 1 team. The format for the games meant that each team started with 20 runs but lost 5 runs each time a player was caught, bowled or run out. Each batting pair batted for 2 overs and every player bowled 1 over each making for a fully inclusive experience.
Great moments of the match came from Robbie Johnston’s superb bowling, Oliver Della Bosca taking a great reaction catch at wicket keeper and lively fielding from Ronan Moore and Navraj Singh. After a very close match we eventually lost by 4 runs (1 wicket for or against).
Game 2 followed straight after against the British Club 2 team. Our collective batting let us down a little in this game as we gave several easy catches to the fielders. We need a miracle and nearly got one as our bowlers and fielders stepped up and played really well, taking regular wickets. Great catches from Ethan Carr and James Hamlyn and steady bowling from Vandan Luniya supported by some powerful battering from Neel Suphavadeeprasit were not enough as we lost again by a tantalizingly close 4 runs.
A great tournament and a wonderful opportunity to add a new sport to our growing list of Primary events.
A big thank you to the boys who played and the parents who supported in the very pleasant surroundings of the British Club.
Look out for our Kwik Cricket ECA in Term 2 next year!
