Under a glorious sun and amidst the hubub from an adjacent football
tournament, Cossonay U13s recorded a resounding win against their
counterparts from Gingins.

Having lost the toss, Cossonay batted first and amassed an impressive 127-4
from their 20 overs. The performance was all the more impressive as the vast
majority of the runs came off the bat, with the Gingins bowlers conceding
very few extras to the home side. Another key feature of the innings was
clear calling between the batsmen and regular rotation of the strike.

Cossonay batted positively from the start with Greg Foster (14) and Arnav
Sandu (17) putting the rival bowlers under immediate pressure. Greg's
dismissal brought in one of CCC's U11s, Thomas Bews, who went on to make an
unbeaten 30 not out (retired) including 3 fours. With Arnav run out on a
misjudged single, Nathan Ryan and Ryan Whitlow came together with the latter
making his first appearance of the season. Nathan continued the momentum of
his colleagues by cracking a crowd-pleasing straight six and Ryan blasted 3
sixes and a 4 before being dismissed for a quickfire 27. U11 Sebastien Lodge
and debutant Jackson Vickerstaff then saw the innings neatly through to
completion at 127-4.

A disciplined bowling and impressive fielding performance followed from CCC
seeing Gingins bowled out for 62. Notable performances with the ball came
from pacemen Greg Foster and Nathan Ryan, followed by a very promising
bowling effort from another U11, Liam Vickerstaff.
