Dunstable 2nd XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 22 May 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 64 runs

Match report After winning the toss and electing to bat, I was pretty sure I had made the wrong decision when 50 minutes later we were 42 for 5 off 17 and I had my pads on. But then came the unexpected positive out of Dave getting stuck in traffic and turning up late, as he joined Fozzie at the crease and together they proceeded to put on 134 in 31 overs.

Dave got out with 5 to go as we looked to get past the 200. Fozzie stayed in though and succeeded in getting a magnificent 100, his maiden for Sawbo, doing so in style by taking 17 off the last over bowled by Carr who before then had figures of 5 for 41 off 17.

The reply was all go, with runs flowing quickly but crucially wickets kept falling. But as with the first innings, once the ball had softened up a bit there was not much in the pitch for the quicker bowlers. They proceeded to accumulate runs without giving any chances, but were always dropping behind the rate. The turning point came with the introduction of Birchy and Fozzie, who started to cause problems immediately with some turn. Fozzie got numbers 5 and 6, who until then had looked untroubled and then Birchy ran through the last 3 to secure another victory and push us well up the league.
