Flood of runs: schoolboys score 675 in 50 overs

2012-09-05 00:00

AFTER a slow start, the runs flooded in, with the U15 cricket team at Hoër­skool Noordheuwel in Krugersdorp scoring a staggering 675 runs in 50 overs against a hapless Hoërskool Bastion at the weekend. And all for the loss of just four wickets.

The last three overs alone brought in 75 runs.

Danie Theunissen (14) scored 181 runs from 91 balls, Hardus Scott (15) 142 from 82 balls, and opener Albertus van der Westhuizen (15) 172 from 81.

All three dream of playing for the Proteas one.

Was the whole match a run fest? Well, no. Bastion were all out for 88.
