Remarkable cricketing tie

An Essex school has achieved a unique one-in-a-billion cricketing record – two tied games on the same day for their two 1st XI teams for the second year running.

Back in May 2021, Felsted remarkably had two ties on one day for their 1st XIs, but against different opposition. This year the school had the same results again, but against the same opposition.

Playing against Suffolk neighbours Framlingham School, the girls’ 100 ball game both finished on 131 runs – with a Felsted batter run out on the last ball.

Incredibly, the boys’ game was equally as exciting with both teams finishing on scores of 269.

Felsted’s head Chris Townsend said: “The chances of this happening for the second year in a row must be close to one in a billion. This is definitely one for the honours board and for the record books.”
