BrentwoodRishi Patel (200) and Harry Levy (150 not out)

Another week, another astonishing score. In a partnership of 342, Brentwood?s Rishi Patel scored 200 from 138 deliveries with 31 fours and six sixes, while Harry Levy took 150 not out from 128 balls with 19 fours and four sixes. They declared at 384 for 1, probably rather too many for Dr Challoner?s Grammar School to chase, but they secured a draw, reaching 198 for eight.

Two other schools also scored over 300; indeed both scored 311 in 40 overs. King Edward VI in Southampton arrived there for four against Reading Blue Coat while Wellingborough lost five for the same score, opener Ben Wall making 112 of them against King?s Ely. He was joined for a large part of the innings by skipper Drew Brierley who fell agonisingly short of three figures on 94 to a waist high full toss from a part-time spinner. Both schools won their games comfortably, all-rounder George Groenland rattling up a quickfire 54 from 32 balls and then taking five for 19 in his eight overs. Earlier in the week, Reading Blue Coat had produced a superlative performance, overhauling the formidable 20 over score of 201 by Merchant Taylors? (Northwood) by nine wickets, Martin Andersson scoring 100 not out.

Ratcliffe and King Edward VIII school in Coventry seem to make something of a habit of ties with their second in six years. The latter knocked up 198 for nine in their 40 overs, with Jack Nightingale taking five for 25 for Ratcliffe. He was also facing on a score of 90 when he was dismissed with the scores level.

The National Twenty20 is making some progress despite rain in several parts of the country. To see the current state of the competition, click here.

Several recent UK schools players were on show at the weekend in the Test match as well as some old hands. Chris Jordan (Dulwich) returned to his native Barbados for England while Shai Hope (Bede?s) lives there and plays for them; he scored a double century for Barbados in March. Jos Buttler (King?s Taunton), the 2009 Wisden schools cricketer of the Year, was twice stranded at the crease, running out of partners; perhaps he should be opening, as he did at school! On Friday the Wisden schools cricketers of the year for 2007 and 2008 are on show in Dublin: Jonathan Bairstow (St Peter?s York) and James Taylor (Shrewsbury), the latter as captain.
