The 2018 edition of this long-standing fixture, first played in 1886, ended with the home team hot on attack , and the last two OBHS batsmen at the crease.
1st XI Cricket
OBHS 1st XI had a hard fought but pleasing draw against Christ's. After losing the first morning due to rain we bowled first restricting them to 156/5 declared.
Mitchell Sims was the pick of our bowlers. We then scored 97/3 before declaring in order to advance the game. Josh Kellett scoring 30. In the second innings, Christ's declared on 157/6 leaving us a target of 217.
After batting aggressively we were 44 runs short 9 wickets down. Thomas Harding scoring 52 and Max Meffan 30.
A pleasing hit out all in all.
2nd XI Cricket
On Monday due to bad weather the 2nd XI played a T20.
OBHS 120/7 Christ's 124/5.
On Tuesday they then played a 50 over match, OBHS all out for 118. Christ's College taking the win 120/7.
OBHS was outclassed by a very polished Christ's College team. A 24 - nil win to Christ's College.
