An experienced MCC team batted first and put together a solid opening partnership of 80 runs before Will Trumper took the first wicket, bowling Barker for 19. From this position, Christ College did well to restrict the visitors to 180 for 8 in the allocated 40 overs, with Trumper being the pick of the bowlers (2-19 off 8 overs).
The stand-out performers with the bat for the MCC were Porter and Barker who totalled 52 and 41 respectively. Christ College’s reply was hindered by the loss of early wickets and the excellent bowling of Rudd and Barker. A fine middle order partnership developed between Tom Wood (51 Not Out) and Iain Mitchell (23) who looked to be on course to challenge the target set, however the shrewd bowling of Rees ended all Christ College hopes when he took four wickets for 17 runs. Christ College finished on a respectable 118 all out in 37 overs and MCC were comfortable winners at the close of play.
Due to the presence of a couple of Old Breconians, most notably ex-Glamorgan County Cricket Club fast bowler Andrew Davies, the lads enjoyed sharing school experiences and cricketing advice. Overall, a fantastic day’s cricket where the game was played competitively and with great spirit!
