Cricket post-match interview:

The University of Nottingham rounded off a victorious Varsity series on Friday with a win in the cricket at Clifton Campus.

A beautiful sunny day helped to attract a healthy crowd of 700-800 people as Trent batted first. The home side started brightly, and it took until the 16th over for Uni of to take their second wicket. That however was the beginning of a late flurry of wickets as NTU went from 119/1 to a final score of 141/5.

UoN lost batsmen more quickly than their hosts, finding themselves 59/3 at one point, but always maintained a satisfactory run-rate to reach their attainable target of 142 with 3 overs to spare.
