Scots College proved too strong for Whangarei Boys’ High School racing to an eight wicket victory after 27.2 overs. Scots College’s three spin bowlers - Shaun Bishop, Josh Lawrence and Chander Ravi – caused all sorts of trouble for the Whangarei Boys’ batsmen.
“We dominated through the middle overs with the spin, and we were able to restrict them and build pressure” says Scots College Captain Josh Lawrence.
Ravi and Lawrence proved to be just as useful with the bat, each scoring a half-century and helping the team cruise home with 23 overs to spare.
Lawrence summed up the team’s thoughts: “We were a bit worried coming in but after today we know we can compete with top teams in New Zealand. It’ll boost everyone's confidence and hopefully will carry on for the next few days.”
