On Friday, we had a great session with the new Mid Canterbury cricket coach. He went through some basic skills. We started with running between the wickets, then some batting and we finished with a game of 3-bat cricket. We tried to use our batting skills that we just learnt in the game but we found that with the added pressure of a moving ball and trying to do well for our team - our skills went away! We have another session in week 9. Check out some photos:
On Wednesday 20 Feb the Tinwald School Milo cricket team played at the Ashburton Oval. We bet Rakaia and Lauriston but we lost to Mt Somers and Hinds. Later this week we will know if we got into the finals. We had lots of fun and an awsome day. Ryan did a saving catch over the pitch - it was an awesome catch.
