The opening match for Dumfries & Galloway under 13s took place on Sunday at Nunholm against Glasgow North. The match was dominated by a couple of batting displays – Chris McBride for the home team and R McCallum for the visitors.
Opening the batting, McBride looked like carrying his bat until he got a good delivery from Ghaffar – who bowled at a good pace and was the best bowler on show. Once Chris was out the innings subsided to 118 all out.
At one stage in the second innings D&G were favourites. At 41 for 5 and even 93 for 7 the Glasgow outfit were struggling but McCallum survived one appeal and a couple of chances to see his side home with 2 wickets to spare.
