Schools cricket update

Tim Hart writes, “It was yet another glorious day, as Hutchesons’ Grammar School (“HGS”) played host to Belmont Academy in the Cricket Scotland National Secondary Schools Cup (for years S1 to S3) . Batting first, at a sun-drenched Titwood (Clydesdale CC), HGS scored 136 for 3 from their twenty overs – with Nikhil Koteeswaran top scoring with 61*.

“In reply, Belmont were always a little behind the required rate after the third over of the innings was a double-wicket maiden from Zakki Tariq.  Despite 39* from Finn Turner, Mobeen Shah’s 3 for 11 then ensured that Belmont could only finish 94 for 5. HGS now progress to the west regional final.”
