Pitt has just given us a massive quandary down at Colts-land after this middle order performance *shakes fist*

Anyways, great work guys, and hopefully we can seal it next Test.


I can't believe I ate the whole thing
Woah, great performance guys. Especially Pitt and Cameron. Mamesh, Scott and Jaso with 50's. Currie with 4 in the 2nd after none in the first and good back up from the rest of the guys with bat and ball :)


U19 Debutant
Well done guys, I had a good game, didn't go on with it though...But the important thing is that the team won.

Great stuff by Cameron, Pitt with worthy mentions to Mamesh and Currie. Good job, fellas - keep it up!


International Regular
Well played boys :)

Awseome first innings to Pitt!
Well batted Jason, Scott and Had's.

Good allround bowling by Andy (the artist formerly known as PH) and Hazza.

Brilliant second half of the match for Currie (stop saying i'm biased Tharmi:P)

:) Making the selectors proud, that's for sure boys!

England Under-19 v Cricket Web Under-19
at New Road, Worcester

Winning a good toss, batting through the time available, and accurate and fiery bowling. Those were the main three causes of England U-19's first win of their home summer, as the rampant Webheads wilted in the face of their first serious challenge all tour.

After winning the toss and batting, England U-19 scored runs quickly but not irresponsibly, as Varun Chopra exploited attacking bowling to hit plenty of runs through a near-vacant leg side. The bowlers looked to have failed to put on sustainable pressure, but Edmunds and McKern chipped away, and the wicket of Moeen Ali (run out for 2) seemed to turn the match. The tourists took the last eight wickets for 112, and looked to ram home the advantage with the bat.

However, batting late into the night in English conditions is never easy, especially not under clouds. Huw Waters and Andrew Miller got the red ball to swing ominously in the lights, clattering the stumps of a helpless Burke for a golden duck before Scott, Vaughan and Jasotharan all perished to catches in the slip region. When Pitt inside edged to be bowled for 5, the tourists were 42 for five, and desperately needing some kind of grafter in the side.

No one were really willing to take the role, however. Mamesh and Currie saw off the swing, and it was with some desperation the ball was handed over to leg-spinner White at a quite early stage - however, White backed his captain, claiming both Currie and Mamesh in the same over to see the Webheads to 116 for 7 overnight. Miller and White cleared up in the morning, and suddenly England were leading by 104.

In with a firm advantage, the hosts did not want to throw it away. Both openers batted doggedly, but responsibly, batting through the entire afternoon session without the loss of a wicket, before Stoneman was deceived by a flighted ball from Currie. The Webheads, however, did not manage to take any cheap wickets, as five men got half-centuries and Rory Hamilton-Brown's score of 37 was the lowest without dismissal. England eventually declared on 440 for 5, setting a mammoth target of 557, and once again the top order wilted - with the possible exception of Jasotharan, who came back with a typical 51 before departing without further notice. Miller claimed four more scalps en route to a fully-deserved Man of the Match award, while the spinner White got rid of Jasotharan and McKern.

England Under-19 260 all out
Cricket Web Under-19 156 all out
England Under-19 440 for 5 declared
Cricket Web Under-19 176 all out
England Under-19 won by 368 runs
Man of the Match: Andrew Miller

Just when I was thinking we could do an Invincibles...

McKern and Edmunds performed well in the first innings, but the batting just wasn't there to back it up. Mamesh played well for his 50 but we really needd someone to stick around. Second time around, the bowling was pretty atrocious, and then it was a similar story with the bat afterwards. Unlucky boys.
