dcs-mike-catting-visitCricket in Shanghai had a welcome boost as Mike Gatting visited Dulwich College Shanghai (DCS) for the third time and sponsored the first Mike Gatting Shanghai Schools Cricket Cup. DCS hosted the U-9 and U-11 Festivals, while Wellington hosted the U-13 event. Four schools from Shanghai entered teams and all are new to cricket. DCS boys and girls have been busy practicing in anticipation of the event, which will hopefully become an annual occurrence. Dulwich College has a proud tradition in cricket, with current England all-rounder Chris Jordan among recent alumni of the London School.

DCS boys and girls experienced a full day of cricket competition and some coaching tips from Mike Gatting himself. While the day was about developing the children’s understanding of the game, there was a competitive element as well. DCS had two teams entered in both the U-9 and U-11 divisions and some fantastic performances throughout the day saw DCS not only win each division but also come runner up as well. Some highlights of the day include Pheobie Opie’s thrilling last over, claiming two wickets to earn DCS 2 a narrow victory against Wellington in the U-11 competition. Theodore Karageorgiou scored loads of runs throughout the day, including 4 sixes in one innings vs. YCIS. Pranav Sethia took 10 catches, including five in an innings vs. YK Pao. In the U9’s, Jamie Gray showed excellent technique, driving the ball down the ground for several boundaries. Archie Low bowled consistently all day and showed great tactically nous in the field. 

Everyone is looking forward to next summer and the opportunity to host the second Mike Gatting Festival at Dulwich Shanghai.
