Canterbury Qualifiers vs Otago Qualifiers
Medbury School played Taieri College from Dunedin yesterday in Timaru. This was the unofficial South Island Final as the CJCA National Primary Schools final was cancelled due to Covid.
The idea was to play 30 overs, but with the rain in the morning, we reduced this to 25. Taieri lost the toss and we sent them in to bat. Not long after the match had started, we had to have a short break to try and find another set of stumps as Henry Murfitt snapped one in half when he bowled someone out.
Taieri made 93 from their 25 overs and we managed to chase this down in the 14th over.
Thank you to Taieri College for the excellent competition, and to the Taieri College staff for their organisation.
