Muni 81/8 - Bloss 82/9


The Under 15s suffered a narrow defeat against Blossomfield at home on Sunday with the visitors completing their run chase with just two balls remaining of the match.

Muni batted first and some good bowling from the Blossomfield captain saw both openers out in the first over.
Navdeep came in and steadied the ship, forming a good partnership with James Taylor, eventually reaching 21 before being caught.
Other good innings came from JT 5, Aryan 20 and Aman 13 not out.

Blossomfield had to beat Muni's total of 81 and set off at a steady pace, keeping neck and neck with Muni's run rate.
The Muni bowlers kept plugging away, taking wickets at regular intervals, at the end of the 18th over Blossomfield were just 1 run ahead but having lost an extra wicket.
The penultimate over saw Roshan come in and take 2 for 2 meaning that Blossomfield needed 3 off the last over with only two wickets remaining.
A run out at the start of the over saw Blossomfield down to their last wicket, but back in came their captain who had retired on 35 and Blossomfield managed to get the final 3 runs that they needed with just two balls left to play.

Top bowling from Navdeep 3/15, Roshan 2/2, Yusuf 1/7, Gerard 1/8 and Aryan 1/18, plus great fielding from Aman who took 3 catches.

Muni showed their battling quality here and came close this week so some good positives to take into the next game.
