Wheathampstead v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 01 May 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost by 108 runs

Match report This game was decided by Wheathampstead's openers, who put on 143 for the first wicket. On a poor wicket on which 160 was probably a good score, it was always going to be difficult to get back into the game. However it could have been very different as we dropped them both before they had 20, with Billy bowling so well at one end I think they would have struggled to get to a good score if those catches were taken.

Overall though, we struggled to find the right lengths and anything short got punished. Only Billy who by the end had deservedly picked up 5 for and Nick Dale who came on near the end and picked up a couple came away with any credit.

On the batting front, we lost Brendan pretty early but soon moved on to 50 off 12 overs as Dave and Tony punished anything short. But both went in the space of 3 balls and from then on it was going to be tough. Another three quick wickets 10 overs later meant it became a question of trying to bat out the overs and see if we could get any more bonus points. But it wasn't to be as they continued to bowl good lengths and even when they didn't we managed to pick out the fielders in the deep.
