Tew hits 50 as Melton U15s ease past Syston

Have your say

On a drizzly evening, Melton Under 15s won the toss and chose to bat first at home to Syston.

Melton lost three wickets in the first five overs and looked in trouble, but an 88-run partnership between Tew and Rawlings changed the game.

Rawlings scored a run-a-ball 21 and Tew retired on 53 off only 41 balls, including nine fours and a six.

Cramphorn and Thorpe finished off the innings with five boundaries to take the score to an impressive 143-7.

Syston started well, reaching 76-1 off 10 overs, but the introduction of Melton’s two spinners Johnson and Tew (7-31-3) changed the momentum and left the visitors needing 21 runs off the last over as Melton sealed an 11-run win.
