Bishops beat Bosch in T20 Cricket

On Wednesday 06 February 2019 the annual Bishops vs Rondebosch Boys' High School T20 Day/Night cricket match was played at the Frank Reid Field.  Will Linley (Kidd), current Senior Prefect, and the Grade 12 group, did an excellent job in getting a large Bishops crowd - in No. 1's - to support the match (see middle left of picture). The courageous Bishops First XI responded well and restricted the strong Rondebosch side to 131 runs in their 20 overs. Plenty of 2018 ODs arrived, and the atmosphere escalated on a beautiful Cape Town evening. The Bishops side absolutely rose to the occasion, and scored 132 runs without the loss of a wicket. The 10 wicket win over Rondebosch is the first in this format since 2011. Thank you to all the ODs who came out to support Bishops. They can testify that the current pupils in Bishops are full of fight, faith, and fit to take on tomorrow's challenges. Well done, Bishops.
