The Village Cricketer meets Cricket with Balls

The Village Cricketer meets Cricket with Balls

A terrific win for The Village Cricketer’s English All Stars. We bowled in the right areas, controlled the controllables and took plenty of positives from the game. What is more, we built some momentum and raised well over £1,000 for the charity.

As with all major sporting occasions, the match has been covered by The Times as well as Cricket with Balls, and any further reports will be linked to here. The full scorecard is below. I’ve also pasted some photos on the Facebook site, so to view (feel free to use on your own blogs) click here.
