Last week at Prem Oval a match was played between second placed Chol
Phratan Phataek and third placed Prince Royal’s College in the Chiang
Mai U-15 Cricket League.
Player of the Match, Priyalak Jaisat (Som) sends down a delivery in a fine bowling spell of 4 wickets for 10 runs.
CPP lost the toss and were asked to bat, but soon
found themselves in trouble after losing early wickets from poor shot
selection, and also very good bowling from Priyalak Jaisat (Som). Only
Nakarin Donweerat (Niew) with 14 made any early impact with the bat as
wickets fell rapidly.
Gritanoo Sergoo (Kha) steadied the ship however and
at the 8th over drinks break CPP were 47 for 6; not really in a good
position to kick on but when Kha retired at 20 and Pongsakorn Maiyer (Jai)
made 16, they had managed put up a defendable score of 87 for the loss
of 7 wickets in their 15 allocated overs.
Prince Royal’s College opening batsman Mai fends off a bouncer from Niew.
PRC bowlers Som, 4 wickets for 10, and Attapan
Seejalernrung (Mai) with 2 wickets for 10 were the pick of the PRC
In reply it was the same Mai and Som who opened the
batting for Prince Royal’s College and made a very steady start but
neither of them really took control as the CPP bowling was very accurate
and gave little away, restricting the flow of runs to a minimum. Mai was
finally out for 18 and Som not out 11 in the final score of 50 for 1 in
their innings, losing by 36 runs. Som was awarded Player of the Match.
So in the end a comfortable victory for CPP; Niew
bowled fast and accurate but Sarawat Nitikasemsa (Eddy) was the only
wicket taker with 1 for 11 from his 3 overs. The win now puts Chol
Phratan Phataek back to the top of the table.
