Rathbones VC 2nds 229 for 6 in 40 overs (Olliver Johnson 81 - Tom Le Lievre 49 - Alex Noel 37) beat Touchstone Royals 228 all out (John Woolnough 62 - Bipin 70 - Yezdi Patel 59) by 1 run . See report below.
Rathbones Victoria College 2nd XI made it 2 wins out of 2 with an incredible victory over new boys Touchstone Royals. College made 229-6 in their 40 over with Oliver Johnson (81) and Tom Le Lievre (48) doing the bulk of the work. In reply Touchstone Royals were cruising to victory as John Woohnough (62), Yezdi Patel (59) and Bipin Zamre (70) got the Royals to 211-2 with 9 overs still to go. However, in an astonishing twist, 15 year old Jack Ingle and 14 year old Elliot Miles somehow dragged College back into the game reducing the Royals 228-8. With Patel on strike and only needing 2 to win the game Ingle produced yet more magic to take a return catch off his own bowling, trapping the ball between his legs after initially letting the ball slip from his grasp. Ingle them removed last man Pretorius with the very next ball to complete a quite remarkable win. Ingle ended with figures of 5-19, but actually took 4 - 2 in just 17 balls after returning to bowl at the depth. Miles finished with 3-36 but took 3-7 in 24 balls.
