Match Report
Bloxham School 1st XI vs  Eton College
On: Tuesday, 07 May 2019
Venue: at Home

Tuesday, we welcomed Eton 2nd XI to Bloxham for a T25 game. Last year produced a good game and hopes were high for another exciting fixture.

Eton batted first and made the most of some indifferent Bloxham bowling. Both openers set a strong platform until a decisive break thorugh was made by the captain Toby SP. That sparked the Bloxham bowlers and fielders into action and helped keep Eton down to 133 all out off 21.5 overs. Special mentions goes to Toby SP, who finished with figures of 3-21, and Josh K-F who had 3 wickets for 1 run.

Bloxham made a very stuttering start to the run chase and soon found themselves 10 for 4 off 6 overs. A partnership between Henry H and James G helped the team try to mount a final challenge but the continous loss of wickets meant that the Bloxham team were bowled out for 62 in 19 overs. .

A very disappointing result and the team would need to learn quickly from the performance before their next fixture.
