Ovington’s Under 15s were beaten by Clifton Alliance tonight by ten wickets on the Little Knavesmire.
Ovington, batting first, set a respectable total of 84. After losing an early wicket, opener Ralph Sinclair retired on 50 with a fine batting performance, hitting seven fours and made the vast majority of Ovington’s total, with extras totalling 11. The hosts would have hoped to have made early in-roads into the Clifton Alliance batting line-up, but were unable to break the opening partnership of Clifton Alliance. The visitors reached their target in just 12.2 overs and without losing a wicket, with H.Bradley retiring on the last ball with a boundary.
Match Reports of other Ovington matches will be posted later in the week.
