U12 Forth Valley v Fife 2015-05-29
Having won the toss Fife put Forth Valley into bat and after an early loss, Kai and Callum went about steadying the innings and put on a great partnership before Callum was out for 16 runs.
Jack joined Kai and he went on the attack eventually having to retire for a very well played 31*.
Kai went on to make a very well played 20 runs before David and Angus had a swash bucking end to the innings with David ending on 7 and Angus on 23.
Forth Valley made 133 – 7 in their 25 overs which was an outstanding effort.
Jamie opened the bowling with Craig and both picked up early wickets to have Fife in real trouble 3 – 2.
Wickets continued to fall as Captain Jack rotated his bowlers, Angus came on for an over and mopped up the tail with amazing figures of 1-0-1-4.
Other bowling figures Jamie 4-1-9-1; Craig 3-2-3-2; Fraser 1-0-5-2
At one stage it looked like Mitchell Starc might be playing with three slips.
All in all a very good performance from everyone in the team, all contributing and working well as a team
Fife was bowled out for 38 runs in 17 overs.
