Cricket is back

Covid restrictions have been lifted and cricket is back!

Pangbourne welcomed Highmoor to the college for the first game of what hopes to be a full, uninterrupted season. Having lost the toss Pangbourne were in the field and were made to toil on a large, fast outfield. Highmoor amassed an imposing total of 278!

Pangbourne responded with 173 in their overs, but were always going to struggle with such scoreboard pressure and whilst Shantha did his best impression of the IPL, they were always well behind the required rate.

Nevertheless, it was good to get out and playing again, especially up at the college, even if the result wasn't what was hoped for first time out.
