Inorganic Cricket Team
Today might be the start of the eagerly anticipated Ashes but last night our cricket team did the School proud by winning the University’s staff and post-grad cricket tournament.
In a hard fought game against Engineering (yes, the whole faculty), it needed the cool heads of Peter Morgan-Tansley and Mike George to see the side home in a nail-biting last over victory. It was, however, a great team performance, particularly in the field, helping restrict the strong Engineering batting line-up to just 115 runs off their 20 overs. Chemistry openers Arran Solomonsz and Dave King started slowly, seeing off the opening bowlers before accelerating the scoring in the middle overs. The momentum was kept going by Ed Greenhalgh and Tom Chamberlain until a mix-up saw Tom run-out. A slight wobble saw several batsmen come to the crease only to get out almost immediately against some hostile bowling, leaving Peter and Mike to seal glory.
The team was captained on the day by Tom Chamberlain, standing in for season-long skipper Adam Martin who was away at DIAMOND.
