Chay enjoys superb first team debut

ALTHOUGH Preston Capes were comfortably beaten in this fixture, they will be considerably heartened by the first team debut of 14-year-old Chay Kalym.

The youngster twirled his arm with great control turning the ball in both directions to leave Greens Norton batsmen befuddled and bewildered as they trudged back to the pavilion following dismissal.

Kalym finished his 12 over spell with seven-46 and if this was not enough to raise eyebrows, batted with confidence to belie his age.

He expressed great timing in his strokeplay to reach 35 only to be last man out with one ball remaining.

Kalym’s individual efforts should not overlook an otherwise dismal performance from the home side.

In chasing 166 for victory, Preston Capes struggled to double figures and lost wickets steadily until Kalym came to the crease.

However, they were never in the chase and finished 89 all out to record a third consecutive defeat.
