Somerset College played Paul Roos on Wednesday, 27 January, in the National Coke T20 competition. This game is the quarter-finals in the Boland region.
Paul Roos batted first and were restricted to 90 for 6 in their 20 overs. Aidan Cunningham and Sam Henderson bowled very well up front and had Paul Roos under pressure from the beginning.
Aidan finished with 2 for 24 in his 4 overs. They were very well backed up by our two senior bowlers, Franco Carstens and William Sendin, who were both very economical in their 4 overs. Franco got 1 for 11 and William 1 for 9.
After a bright start College lost wickets at regular intervals but managed to get to 94 and win the game by 3 wickets. Sam Henderson played a very good knock of 22 not out to get us to the required target.
Somerset College beat Paul Roos by 3 wickets to advance to the next round which will be played next Wednesday afternoon, 3 February.
