Batfast travelled up North to the Emirates Riverside Ground in Durham to set up their world class cricket simulators at the fan zones for Durham CCC. With kids lining up and waiting for their turn for over 25 minutes at a time, we are glad to say that we were one of the best attractions at the stadium.
Match Details from Durham CCC vs Northamptonshire CCC, 09 July 2017
The toss was won by Alex Wakely, the captain of Northamptonshire who chose to put the home team into bat on what was an overcast day at the Emirates Riverside Ground. Jack Burnham got to a fantastic 53* of 41 balls. However, an economical spell from Tabraiz Shamsi and a three-wicket haul for Rory Kleinveldt restricted the home side to 161.
Northamptonshire lost opener Rossington in the fourth over and continued to lose wickets in intervals. However, a 72 from 56 balls from opener Ben Duckett ensured a 6 wicket victory for the visitors. Ben Duckett was adjudged the man of the match for his brilliant knock.
Amidst the match, we were thrilled to have you try the BATFAST Cricket simulator. We hope you all enjoyed it thoroughly and would be keen on trying it out again. We will be bringing the simulator along all other matches and Events. Please invite your friends along see who can be the best amongst yourself
