The Cricketers' Chronicle

Cricket has begun once again despite the April showers. 

The season started back at the end of March with an epic tour of Sri Lanka by a group of thirteen under 15s and seventeen under 14s, assisted by six staff.

They travelled around central and South Eastern Sri Lanka playing academies, schools and club sides along the way. The tour group played in Colombo, Kandy and Wadduwa. The cricket was highly successful, there were many performances on the pitch with runs and wickets shared around with boys gaining valuable experiences. As well as the cricket, the pupils experienced the heights of Sigiriya rock, an elephant safari drive, a visit to a deaf and blind school, a tea factory experience, stopping off at local fruit stalls, indulging in fresh coconut water and mangosteens, as well as enjoying the pleasures of some luxurious hotels. The whole experience was a great success and the pupils have come back ready to take on a new season ... in many more layers than anticipated! Congratulations to Pat (Year 10) who amassed over 230 runs, and Yash and Daniel for both taking 5 wicket hauls. 

Back in blighty the season is underway and the pupils are desperate to play as often as they can. The showers have not stopped Bobby 7-13 (2ndXI) and Jack 7-6 (14b) rattling through their respective RGS Worcester teams. The Dunning brothers have both smashed 50's, Yash continues to accumulate runs in the 14As and Finton has started the season where he left off in Sri Lanka with a solid 72. The midweek block against Solihull continues this week with the Saturday block against Stamford hanging in the balance ... hopefully the April showers stay away!
