Adelaide High has won the Chappell Shield in dramatic circumstances, with an unbeaten stand of 16 for the last wicket between rising talents Tejas Gill and Connor Kent seeing Adelaide High win by a wicket.
Adelaide High lost the toss and bowled first, with Jain, Hunkin and Wadia applying excellent pressure before Connor Kent collected 3fa in an excellent spell in conjunction with Wadia.
Rajesh then got us off to a flyer, with a series of clean drives (6 boundaries) before being dismissed for 28. It was then a steady loss of wickets as Saints applied the pressure and challenged our players in the moment. 1st Grade district cricketers Carrington, Wadia & Patel all fell and left us at 8/71 with Gill at the crease. Liam Kent and Connor Kent both played valuable roles with the latter in the winning partnership with Gill.
That concludes our cricket season for Adelaide High and what a way to finish. Thanks to all in our school community who allow us to do what we do.
