BB vs King's School Rochester

BB 255 - 4 Dec

King's School Rochester 151

BB won by 6 wickets

The BB’s won the toss on a glorious day at the Paddock and chose to bat on a wonderful batting track. We got off to a reasonable start courtesy of brother Jay but then lost 2 wickets in quick succession. The damage was soon rectified by Grayson Jones and Luke Ronday (guests) who set about rebuilding the innings. King’s bowlers faded badly as the inning wore on and runs became very easy to come by. The BB’s declared shortly before tea on 255-4. 

The King’s response began well with Tom Miles scoring a very impressive 40 until Julian Mitchell produced a fine spell of swing bowling culminating in 2 lbw’s. Once Miles went the wickets tumbled at regular intervals until such time the final wicket fell at 151. All the bowlers contributed and the fielding was outstanding all day. As usual the school were as hospitable as ever and put on a fine spread. Many of the school players were only in the lower sixth so I expect next year’s fixture to be very competitive!

My thanks go to David Lapthorn and Colin Hill for umpiring and of course to Diane Gittings who is ever present at the fixture with the scorebook.
