Match Report
Gresham's School 1st XI Girls vs  Norwich School
On: Tuesday, 26 Apr 2022
Venue: at Home

The Girls’ First XI played Norwich School in the first round of the National Cup and progressed thanks to an impressive performance with both bat and ball.

Losing the toss and being put in the field, we nevertheless started strongly with Charlotte Gaunt taking 1 for only 12 runs off her 4 overs. Charlotte Tipling and Grace Hanworth-Knights both took 3 for 16 and we restricted Norwich to 92 for 9 off their 20 overs.

Esther Broad and Charlotte Gaunt started brightly in response and by the time Zara Uthwatt-Bouverie had quickly got to double figures, the match was looking well-placed for a Gresham’s victory. Grace Hanworth-Knight made sure with a swash-buckling 36 runs, finishing with five 4s in 12 balls. The win was secured with two and a half overs to spare.

The Firsts ended 94 for 4 and will play Leicester Grammar School in the next round. Player of the Match was Grace Hanworth-Knights.
