Match Report

Early morning cloud gave way to blue skies and on a placid wicket bat dominated ball for most of the day. Conference batted first with Ishtiaq Mohammed and Dawkins putting on 125 attractive runs for the first wicket. Mohammed was out for 40 just before lunch with Dawkins going shortly after for 66. Runs continued to flow the School bowlers unable to make any major breakthroughs. Ishfaq Mohammed (63), Hooper (44) and Chisti (49 not out all made useful contributions enabling Conference to declare on 312 for 6 wickets off 41 overs.

In reply, the School began disastrously losing 2 wickets with only 9 runs on the board. However, Hooper and Harding came together and not only steadied the ship but added 187 runs for the third wicket. Hooper was out for 63 but Harding increased the tempo to compile 123 runs before being caught. Despite making several bowling changes, Conference was only able to take one further wicket and at the close, the School had reached 241 for the loss of 5 wickets off 40 overs. Overall, it was an enjoyable game with most batsmen making the most of an excellent wicket which offered little encouragement to the bowlers.
