The U/11A Cricket boys attended the Knysna Cricket Festival hosted by Sport at Backward Point.
As usual, the festival was very well organised. The fields were in excellent condition considering the water restrictions and severe fires that ravaged the area recently.
The boys played Oakhill. They bowled really well and dismissed their opponents for 63. Eversdal managed to win the game, however it was a very tight game where all the players contributed with both bat and ball.
We awoke to plenty of rain and heavy winds. However, miraculously the boys managed to play 60 overs of cricket. Bowling was tight at Wittedrift High School from both teams. Eversdal chased 130 runs. They batted out their full allotment of 30 overs but could not reach the target.
Our last day was spent at Rheenendal and we played in beautiful weather. Eversdal continued to bowl and field superbly. They restricted their opponents to 18 runs all out. Eversdal was allowed to bat their full 25 overs. Everyone got a chance to bat. Some for only an over or two.
All in all it was a wonderfully successful tour enjoyed by all the players and spectators.
