DCB U13 Girls v Shropshire on Sunday 18th May at Clifton CC

Result: Shropshire 36 all out in 19 overs (Mariam Imam 3-7) lost to Derbyshire 38/1 in 8.2 overs by 9 wickets

A sunny morning greeted the opening fixture of the summer. Derbyshire skipper Lily Lymn won the toss and decided to bowl first. Imogen Cooper (4-0-9-0) and Mariam Imam (4-0-7-3) took the new ball and with some tight bowling the Shropshire openers found runs very difficult to come by. The breakthrough came in the 4th over when Imam bowling into a stiff breeze removed the opener. The visitors were soon reduced to 15 for 3 when Imam took two more wickets, one with a magnificent diving catch at cover point from Lymn. Izzy Randall (4-0-7-2) and Lucy Yates (4-1-8-4) who replaced the openers soon had the Shropshire batsmen struggling to progress with excellent spells. Both bowling with accuracy and with Lucy nearly taking a hat-trick the pair took the heart out of the middle order. At 36 the tail was wrapped up as Eleanor Gregory (1-0-4-0) and Corall Wing (2-2-0-1) underlined the depth in bowling.

Chasing a modest total the Derbyshire openers Bess Heath (23 not out) and Lucy Yates (5) soon set about the task with Bess in particular punishing any wayward bowling. They raced to 31 before Lucy fell to Munroe. Lily Lymn joined Bess and completed a comfortable 9 wicket victory after just 8.2 overs.
