3rd XI

Good start to the season for the 3rd XI boys. Good performances with the ball for Kieran Rutter (3-39) and Tom Pratt (4-7) with Ravenscar posting 164 all out (the standout being a score of 123 for their opener on debut).

In reply a steady start from Sam Spenceley and Tom Pratt was built upon by a quickfire 32 from Midhun Vijay accelerating the run rate. The 3rds getting home with 4 balls to spare with Pratty completing a man of the match performance by carrying his bat for a well crafted 92 not out.
