posted in: Tournaments, U13 | 0
Suisse 141 for 10 (Wilf 24*, Kian 16, Westy 4 for 9, Eden 2 for 21) beat Schweiz 127 all out (Luca 17*, Max L 15, Tristan 3 for 15, Charlie M 2 for 14)
The Leman Cup opening fixture of the new season was a closely fought match but the Suisse team held on retain the trophy for another year.  Suisse batted first and scoring proved difficult with tight bowling and good fielding. However the last pair piled on the runs in the final overs and the total reached a very respectable 141.  Westy with 4 wickets and Eden with 2 were the pick of the bowlers.  In reply, Schweiz lost early wickets reaching 5 down for 47 after 10 overs.  Then Luca 17* and Max L 15 batted very sensibly to put on a stand of 50.  As more wickets fell the run chase proved too much and the Schweiz innings ended 14 runs short of the target.
Congratulations to the Suisse team for retaining the trophy and to Wilf best batsman, Eden best bowler and Nathaniel for best fielder.
