Five on the trot for Cambridge

An impressive all-round effort from junior cricketer Jack Marsh helped Cambridge to a nail-biting victory against Berkley U14 Boys Heat on Saturday.

Berkley batted first, setting the Craig Investment Partners sponsored year 7 and 8 team a target of 186 for the win playing at home at Cambridge Middle School.

Jack Marsh played a crucial role in Cambridge Year 7 and 8 team’s win over Berkley at Cambridge Middle School on Saturday.

Jack took two crucial first-innings wickets off three overs, striking as Berkley’s runs were flowing freely.

He also achieved Cambridge’s second highest total with the bat, scoring 16 off 30 balls in the second innings before being bowled by Kaveen Jayasundera.

Navvir Singh Kang was also in sizzling form, scoring 54 off just 46 deliveries and chipping in with three wickets off his three overs.

Navvir retired on 35 after facing 30 balls but was called back to the crease after the rest of his team were dismissed.

Needing 25 runs to win the match with no wickets in hand, he and Benjamin Wilson held their nerve to hit their target in 21 deliveries and seal victory.

Cambridge is undefeated having won five consecutive games since the season opened on February 10.
