Cricket - Day 7

Thursday began with our 4th 40 over fixture against the ICC Hurricanes. We were put into bat on a fast pitch at the Sevens in Dubai. Although we had a slow start, impressive batting from Theo C who put on 70 individually led RGS to a sub par 146 in 30 overs after being bowled out by our opposition.

In tough fielding conditions and high temperatures our bowling attack found it tough to break down the ICC top order, with our first wicket coming from Ollie H who bowled a fine delivery to claim his first wicket of the tour. Despite best efforts from Ed R and Alex MJ in early overs, ICC managed to comfortably reach the target set by us and win by 9 wickets. A good learning curve for us playing against some quality opposition.
