Thrills in the hills

Colwall
Warwickshire v Yorkshire (Under 15 girls), Colwall Cricket Club – Thursday 4th August, 2016

Two Warwickshire batters celebrate after scrambling a match winning single. Chasing just 58 to win they had slipped to 28 for 5 at lunch. A spirited Yorkshire side continued to take wickets after the interval and set up a nail-biting finale. Warwickshire were nine wickets down before the last pair added the nine runs required to seal the win. This facsinating low scoring game took place on the third and final day of The Malvern County Cricket Festival at Colwall Cricket Club. It would be hard to find a more fitting  venue, as it was here in 1926 that The Women’s Cricket Association was founded.
