South Canterbury Holiday Cricket CoachingThe South Canterbury Boys U19 team found the going tough on a batsmen friendly wicket that had considerably more bounce than most would have played on this season and after spilling what turned into very important chances ended up chasing a formidable total of 335 to win set by Mid Canterbury, with the bulk of the runs coming from two batsmen, Josh Worsfold with 125 and William Southby 70.

Kyle Montgomery had the most success taking 3-70  from his 10 overs and Liam Beck with 2- 42 off six overs was next best, but none of the bowlers would look happily at their figures.

In reply South Canterbury lost wickets regularly and were unable to create a partnership that could slow the momentum, and while the tail wagged in terms of balls faced, South Canterbury were all out for 162, less than half the opposition score.

There is still a month to tournament, the opening game of which is a two dayer against the same opposition on the same pitch, so the batsmen need to think about trusting the bounce, and not playing balls they don’t have to, or can’t score off and get into the mindset of having the bowlers bowl where they would like it to be.
