The St Andrew’s 1st XI cricket team has repeated their historic feat as regional winners of the Gillette Cup, comfortably beating Christ’s College in the final. This was a fantastic achievement at the highest level of competition possible this year, with the cancellation of the national tournament due to COVID-19.
Christ’s College won the toss and elected to bat, making 152 in their 45 overs. Will Anderson (Y13) was the star bowler for St Andrew’s, with 4/30. A gritty middle-order partnership between Arden Ongley (Y13 – 42 not out) and Cameron Paul (Y12 – 63 not out) saw the team reach the target in the 38th over. It was a great team win, with everyone contributing superbly, especially in key moments.
