Cricket Half Term Round Up

Cricket round up from the first half of the Summer term

The Cricket season here at Tiffin seems to fly by as quickly as it comes around every year – we have already reached the midway point of the season but we have lots to report on, including our current leading performers with the bat and ball, as well as some particularly notable victories in the first Summer half-term. 

Tiffin Cricket currently stands at a hugely satisfying 61% win rate across all the teams in the school. This is a remarkable achievement and only highlights the top level of skill, teamwork and determination that our players exhibit translating into a series of impressive victories thus far. Individual leading performances can be found here for you all to see!

Senior Cricket has shown some brilliant numbers and commitment this year with enough players to easily make 4 XI’s. The 1st XI, 2nd XI and 3rd XI are regularly playing a high level of cricket whilst balancing their exams which we hope is having a positive impact on their performance in the exam hall as well. The U17’s in particular still have a good chance of progressing far in the County Plate as they play Kingston Grammar in the Second Round after beating Ibstock Place in the first round comfortably at Grists. We are even more proud that a number of our younger cricketers are playing up a few age groups as are they more than good enough to play some higher level cricket, these have included: Ishaan (Y9), Omkar (Y9), Ayush (Y10) and Zaky (Y10) – well done to all involved in the plate run and good luck!

The U12’s have settled into Tiffin Cricket and we are excited about the talent within this group of players. Across the A’s, B’s, C’s and D’s we have won 15 of the 19 fixtures so far this year, an outstanding achievement proving our excitement for the group in the years to come is justified. The U13’s have kicked on from last year with some good performances win, lose or draw. The A’s have had two standout victories against Halliford (winning by 18 runs) and Wallington (winning by 45 runs, bowling them all out for 75). 

The U14’s are a particularly strong year group where some of the B team players are unlucky not to be in the A’s when they might well have been in another year group! The A’s progressed to the Final 16 in the Anderson Cup after a brilliant performance against Claremont Fan Court in the Round of 32 but were unfortunate to come up against St. Paul’s who are likely the strongest team in the tournament – it was nonetheless a great cup run. Notable victories include beating Emanuel by 145 runs (bowling them out for an incredible 36), Kingston Grammar by 45 runs (bowling them out for 97) and beating Wallington by 10 wickets for no loss. 

The U15’s are turning into a very strong side as a group full of leaders as well as talent. They have had two cup competitions to balance throughout their fixture list and unfortunately, we did exit the NatWest County Cup at the Round of 32 after losing by 26 runs against a strong Downsend School side. However, more excitingly, the U15’s have progressed to the Quarter Finals ESCA T20 Competition after beating Glyn by 9 wickets in the first round and then a stunning victory in the Round of 16 vs Cranmore by 24 runs thanks to a breathtaking 101 partnership between captain Ayush and Max. While they face a tough challenge against Epsom College in the last 8, with the form some of these Tiffin cricketers are showing, never say never! Outside of their cup competitions, their imperious victory against Lancing College, winning by 10 wickets and bowling them all out for 62 was likely their most impressive.

That concludes our roundup of the cricket last half-term. There is still lots of cricket to be played at Tiffin before we wind down for the summer holidays and give our young athletes at Tiffin a well-earned break ready for the next academic year!
