Tonbridge School v BB

BB - 241


On Tuesday 21st June, a BB side full of youth and experience took to the typically picturesque, Head at Tonbridge School. 


Tonbridge won the toss and elected to bat first, a decision which their Captain may have regretted after Finn Hulbert and Jame Monkhouse rattled the Tonbridge top order. At 46-4 Tonbridge were under a lot of pressure to put a target on the board. An interesting decision to bring Brother Hill onto bowl slightly turned the game back towards Tonbridge. Tonbridge then put together 2 or 3 good partnerships and left the BB fighting to stay in the game. At 241-7 Tonbridge declared and on a good Tonbridge pitch, was that point to be enough?

A similar story was written by the BB top order as we slipped to 40-5. However, with the batting power that was still in the hutch, Rosé was poured and no one panicked. Cue Finn Hulbert. Finn’s glorious shotmaking and relentless defiance was the backbone and body of the BB chase. The BB were in total control as both Finn and Toby Marriott put together a superb and match saving partnership of 139. With The BB 226-7 the game was surely wrapped up. With Finn 115 not out and Alex Hill and Alex Cornwallis still to bat, The BB were filled with confidence. As the sun set over the Chapel both Alex’s were swiftly dismissed and the game was firmly back in The School’s hands. 7 to win. 1 wicket to get. Finn hits a 6! 1 run to win. Finn 128 not out. Scores are level…. And that is the way they finished. Finn tries his luck one too many times and puts a steepler down the throat of the Tonbridge captain. Match Tied.

A superb effort from all and a very fitting result to a fantastic day of cricket. We look forward to going back next year and going 1 run further. Thanks to all involved, a game none will forget
