Match Report
Milton Abbey School 1st XI vs  Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC)
On: Thursday, 09 May 2019
Venue: at Home

The fist XI played twice last week. The first was the traditional MCC fixture. The MCC brought a very good team and batted first. We bowled and fielder really well. Seb Des Forges making a really impact with the ball taking 2 for 54 from his eleven overs. MCC set us 211 to win. Their opening bowler was a professional cricketer who is currently contracted with Worcestershire. Bowling at speeds of 80 plus miles a hour was a fantastic experience for the boys and Mr Lawes was impressed with their courage and determination to cope with what would have been the fastest bowling that they have ever faced. Fin, Gus and Seb all batted very well but we ultimately fell short of the score. A great afternoon of cricket.
