Christchurch Boys’ High School elected to bat after winning the toss. Opening batman Daniel Stanley scored the first century of the tournament, and was eventually caught out on 116. A solid 114 run partnership with Sean Forster contributed to the team’s final score of 286 after 50 overs.
On accomplishing the century Daniel says “It was a great feeling. I was so nervous in those 90s and the next minute I was raising the bat – it was awesome.”
The Christchurch Boys’ High School bowlers were clinical, only allowing two of the Scots College batsmen to enter double digits. Mitchell Ross took four wickets, and Alex Hooper took three. Scot’s College was all out for 131 in the 31st over.
