Bolton coast to title
Bolton School thrashed Whitgift School by 10 wickets in the National U15 Schools T20 Cup on at Arundel Park School.
Bolton won the toss, elected to field and restricted Whitgift to 136 for eight with M Parkinson (4-17) doing the damage and H Hameed (1-10) bowling with excellent discipline.
Bolton made light work of the total, openers H Hameed (83) and C Parkinson (41) completing the task wicketless for Bolton in the 17th over.
The finals day was competed between Shrewsbury School, Whitgift School, Bolton School and Portsmouth School and the standard remained high with over 800 runs scored in the three matches.
The ECB would like to thank the dedication and commitment of the English Schools Cricket Association (ESCA) during a very wet summer.
