This was a most remarkable game of cricket and must rank with the final ODI between Eng and NZ
Radyr batted first and made a very respectable score in making 260 for 2wkts
The team were told to bowl straight and not give too many extras away. This they did but Lisvane’s batting was strong and runs were very quickly accumulated. The first wicket went down in the eleventh over when their score was then 259 and it looked as though the game was dead and buried. However, the loss of the wicket spurred the girls into action and in the fifteenth over on came Chloe Thomas.
In one over Chloe took two consecutive wickets with her first two balls. Nearly achieved her hat trick with the third but then went on to take a third wicket with her fourth ball.
This brought back the Lisvane total to 254 and with another five overs to go three more wickets were taken. However ,the last pair of batsmen were strong and they managed to pass our total and retain the lead to the end.
WONDERFUL ACHIEVEMENT TO THE WHOLE TEAM FOR FIGHTING RIGHT TO THE VERY END
