Truro School’s Under 12 side travelled to Exeter School on Saturday 27 June for what would prove to be the sternest challenge of the season, with Milly and Kushal playing their first game for the school.
Exeter batted first and scored 165 for 5 wickets off 25 overs. Once again, Truro allowed too many extras (44) to contribute to the Exeter total. Ben (5 overs, 1 for 16) and James (5 overs, 1 for 18) were the pick of Truro’s bowlers.
In reply, Truro’s openers Ben and William had a fine partnership of 77 before Ben was out for 22. Truro’s hopes of an unlikely win were still alive as William punished the Exeter attack but when he was bowled one run short of his half century, the momentum was lost and Truro completed their 25 overs on 113 for 7 wickets. Truro Under 12’s complete their season with another long journey to Wellington on Wednesday 1 July.
