Hertford 2nd XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 30 Apr 2011 at 1:00
Match was Drawn

Match report A mixed first game to the season. Playing on an absolute road with a very short boundary, it was always going to be a high scoring game but we shouldn't have let them get nearly 300. Their innings revolved around their captain who scored 142, but we kept giving him lives missing a stumping and dropping him 3 times before he had 100.

In reply we set off really well against the old ball, Simon and Phil put on 75 for the first wicket going at nearly 5's. But when Simon got out the run rate slowed as Jake and then Birchy took there time getting in against their spinners. Our chances of winning probably went with Phil when he unluckily played on, but the next target was to get 200 and maximum batting points. But then we had a big wobble, losing 4 wickets in 5 overs with 7 overs left. But Joe and I managed to consolidate and hit the bad ball so we kept picking up points. The final disappointment though was that we couldn't quite get to 200, finishing 1 run short.
