The Willows vs
Christchurch Boys' High School 1st XI


Report by John Mitchell

The Willow’s vs Christchurch Boys’ High School – Sunday 15th November

Having recently qualified for yet another Gillette Cup Finals shot, the Boys’ High side were in preparation mode for the upcoming five-day tournament to be held at Lincoln in December. A beautiful day at Loburn greeted the two sides and, by arrangement, the Willows put the School side in to bat on a new deck which had a little bit to offer with the new ball. Openers Robbie Foulkes, and Mitchell McMillian started positively and CBHS were off to a bit of a flyer early. The first wicket fell in the 9th over with the score already at 51. Foulkes worked hard during a tight period of bowling from Nuttall, Scott and Parr, to later begin to accelerate and build a platform for some excellent stroke making around him. The star of the innings was Stan Ashwin who pummeled the attack and left bowlers searching for answers. Ashwin came to the crease in the 27 over when the score was 120/3. After easing into his innings, he smashed it to all parts and closed the innings perfectly with Callum Simpson and Ranaq Kapur who managed to go at 10 runs per over for the last 10. A chanceless knock, Ashwin finished on 110* off 65 deliveries with 13 fours and 2 sixes closing the innings at 305/5. A mammoth total.

The Willows in reply, had a batting line up which could threaten. The deck had flattened out and was a very good batting surface. A solid start between Aarush Bhagwat and Kelvin Scott promised much but a flurry of wickets from seamers Rocco O’Loughlin and Callum Simpson, saw the Willows reeling at 55/4. 55/4 soon became 78/8 as wickets continued to fall to good catching and good bowling. Simpson having a great spell with a return of 4-29. The only form of resistance came from Aaron Mauger who picked up a bat for the first time in four years and scored an excellent run a ball 51 showing great application. Mauger, with good support from Andrew Nuttall late in the piece helped get the Willows to 160 all out.

305 was always going to be a tall order, (particularly with 5 ducks) but it was wonderful to see the Christchurch Boys’ team put together such a complete performance. Excellent batting was backed up with intensity and skill in the field and the bowling was relentless and accurate. A very good performance from the young men from Straven Road and a realization that it may be a very tough ask to ever win back the Willows trophy and thoughts around team selection for 2021 are already underway.

It was an honor and pleasure to have four Hadlee members – Dayle, Barry, Martin and Sir Richard – along with John Wright in attendance for the afternoon’s formalities.
