10 July - Yr 7 Cricket Plate Champions


On 6th July the Year 7 Cricket team played in the Kent Plate Final against Kent College at Rodmersham Cricket Club. Olave's lost the toss and were put into Bat by the opposition. Ayush Singh got Olave's off to a fantastic start hitting a beautiful four from the first delivery of the match, before going on to make 25 runs. Other notable performances with the Bat came from Ameya Athwale, scoring 32 runs and hugely impressive captains performance from Daniel Kenward scoring 50 runs, not out. This resulted in Olave's posting a significant total of 139 runs, which they went on to comfortably defend against what was a good Kent College side. Tight bowling from Ashray Suryanarayanan, Anirudh Gaikwad and excellent fielding in particular from Ethan Nancekivell- Smith and Yuvi Chahar, resulted in Kent College being bowled out for 100 runs after 20 overs, ensuring a fantastic victory for the Olave's boys. Well done to the entire squad, who have all contributed in the journey to lifting the Kent plate.
