Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI Sunday v Isambard on Sun 11 Jul 2010 at 2:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won 8 wickets

Match report A maiden century from Olly Jackson helped Sawbridgeworth cruise to a comfortable eight wicket win at Town Fields on Sunday.

The 17-year-old timed the ball impeccably to all parts of the ground as he compiled a magnificent 114 not out. He scored more than half his side's total from just 96 deliveries, helping his side reach their target with more than 11 overs to spare.

Sawbridgeworth rattled along at more than seven runs an over, and it was quite surprising that Rob Furber's 26 off 30 balls was the slowest strike-rate in the home side's innings.

Furber featured in an opening stand of 65 in 10 overs before Marshall blitzed 43 from just 33 deliveries (seven fours, one six) as 99 runs were added for the second wicket.

Bird chipped in with a run-a-ball 13 but Jackson fittingly hit the winning runs with his 22nd boundary.

Earlier, skipper Bywater (50) and Lindsay (36 off 25 balls) were the visitors' main contributors although Sawbo conceded 34 extras.

Joe Rudkin was the pick of the Sawbo attack, taking 3-24 in eight overs including the wicket of Gardiner with his first ball of the day.

O'Donovan had returned figures of 7-4-4-4 in last season's fixture, but in contrast, he went for 20 in his first over before recovering well to finish with figures of 3-35.

Howard took two wickets in his second spell with Bird and Reynolds taking a wicket each.
