22.05.19 – Warwick 1s v Nottingham Trent 1s

Warwick win by 130 runs?! What can I say…unbelievable performance from the girls today. We lost the toss and batted first for the first time ever (think we’ll be doing it a bit more often), after losing an early wicket for no runs the pressure was on. Enter Izzy Dobbins, who put in an absolutely superb performance to secure our first EVER half century!! Finishing on 77 off 68 balls, Izzy took home a deserved player of the match award. At the other end she was matched pace by pace by Izzy Ralph with another unbelievable performance with the bat; our first half century was quickly followed by another with Iz batting out all the overs to finish with 64* not out! We put on 191 for Nottingham to face- by far our highest total ever on the board. Hannah & Hetty opened the bowling with everything in the right place: Hetty took 2 wickets in her spell and we were well on our way. A HUGE performance from our debutant Elsa secured another 3 wickets from her end, supported by a run out by Lydia on her debut and 2 brilliant wickets from Becky. Special mention to Orla who took her first catch ever and managed to break her finger in the process of doing so. Wickets fell easily with a faultless performance in the field, finishing with a deservedly ridiculous caught and bowled from Izzy R. Nottingham were all out for 61. From your captain, all I can say to this team is you went above and beyond anyone’s expectations and absolutely deserved to SMASH our way to our first win. CONGRATS!!!!
