On the best Saturday of the summer to date, Hereford Cathedral School were asked to bat on a wicket that had hardened nicely since the downpours earlier in the week. Perhaps it was the lack of practice on a hard, dry wicket that undid Hereford, as Christ College soon had their tails up with the visitors reeling on 21 runs for 4 wickets.
It is said that sport is won and lost in the mind, and Hereford struggled to rally under pressure being exerted by Christ College. Their demise continued, with Christ College’s captain Connor Norris taking the final Hereford Cathedral School wicket to end their innings on 55 runs. Harrison Kent and Will Trumper prospered most in the conditions, and Form 4 pupil Callum Brayshaw continued to impress, taking 2 wickets and a fine catch in the gully.
Following an early lunch, it was Christ College’s turn to be affected by the mind games that so often play havoc with sports performers! With the Christ College batsmen having scored only 13 runs for 4 wickets, it was now Hereford’s turn to apply the pressure! It was left to Connor Norris however to steady the ship with a solid captain’s innings. However, when Norris was dismissed, quickly followed by Alex Ryan, and with 12 runs still needed, the ‘jitters’ once again set in. Thankfully, old head Jiwan Rana calmly steered the home side to victory!
Well done to Hereford for making a spirited fight of a seemingly hopeless position, but many congratulations to Connor and his side in recording a famous and well deserved victory!
