From the United Junior Cricket Club:
United opened the batting with a strong showing from Keshav and Ishaan, both of whom batted superbly under less than desirable conditions. It took a lot of getting used to for the boys to be on the receiving end of thrown balls rather than regulation bowling. Despite the opposition's lack of legal action, at the end of the 8th over we were strong at 52 for 2.
Lightning, a team from Plano, opened with a couple of strong batsmen and United struggled to remove them, until Keshav came in with a blazing ball and bowled their number 2 clean! Ishaan, Dhruv, and Aditya kept the pressure on with a steady bowling attack. The match came right down to the wire with Lightning finally winning by one run on the last ball of the match.
Much credit is due the boys who persevered in the face of much older opposition and continued to give their best right up until the last ball!
Proud to be United!
