Just reading through the commentary of my Youth match. We were cruising in our chase...
End of over 22 (2 runs) - Otago(127-1). 83 runs required from 18 overs. RR 5.77 RRR 4.61
P. Snijders 49 (69b) , P. Boeve 61 (52b) , R. Kelly 7-0-32-1
then we lost a few quick wickets
End of over 34 (2 runs) - Otago(183-8). 27 runs required from 6 overs. RR 5.38 RRR 4.50
A. Mouris 0 (1b) , E. Abel 13 (17b) , V. Kapini 5-0-22-4
just as we had looked to have recovered and maybe sneak home...
Stack to Abel : Stack released that delivery from well behind the bowling crease. Abel played his shot too early and middle peg is knocked back as a result. Unorthodox but effective.
E. Abel b. B. Stack 18 (23b 0x4 0x6) SR:78.26
End of over 37 (4 runs) - Otago(196-9). 14 runs required from 3 overs. RR 5.30 RRR 4.67
A. Zagema 2 (2b) , A. Mouris 5 (12b) , B. Stack 3-0-16-1
Next over: 3
Next over: 5
End of over 39 (5 runs) - Otago(204-9). 6 runs required from 1 overs. RR 5.23 RRR 6.00
A. Zagema 6 (10b) , A. Mouris 9 (16b) , B. Stack 4-0-21-1
39.1 3 Kapini to Mouris : Chip up and over mid-off. Mouris had a nice early call and will get three. Great running!
39.2 . Kapini to Zagema : Bowled him! The batsman's not happy here, and has erupted into a ferocious tantrum! Quite right, that wheelie bin is far too big for three year olds... On the main pitch, Zagema defends that one into the off side. No run.
39.3 1 Kapini to Zagema : Smashed to deep extra cover, where Mahmood picks up and rockets a throw over the top of the stumps. Great cricket.
39.4 . Kapini to Mouris : Huge appeal for lbw. Full in length, on the middle stump line and straightened a touch and Mouris went for a loose drive. The bat came outside the line and the ball hit the pad. Close. Very close. Did he get an inside edge? The replays don't confirm that.
39.5 2 Kapini to Mouris : In the air through the point region. 2 runs.
End of over 40 (6 runs) - Otago(210-9) RR 5.25
A. Mouris 14 (19b) , A. Zagema 7 (12b) , V. Kapini 7.5-0-36-4
Otago won by 1 wicket
So, so lucky.
