Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI v Baldock on Sat 25 Jun 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 87 runs

Match report At 11 for 4 in the 8th over, I don't think anybody expected us to end up winning so comprehensively but at the end that's exactly what we did.

Our innings was saved by a fantastic backs against the wall partnership of 79 between Bob and Fossie, although they both got out before we got 100 with some good lower order batting by the bowlers we managed to post 134 for 9.

They definitely thought they had the game won at tea, but Runcie and Billy then performed a great bowling double act with the old ball. Despite 2 early dropped catches, the ball was set rolling with a poor run out from their point of view, but from then on it was great tight bowling and pressure that won it for us. After Billy had a double wicket maiden in the 11th over, from that point on their batsman looked like rabbits caught in the headlights. 3 overs later Runcie chipped in with his own double wicket maiden and from then on it seemed like just a matter of time. Their number 5 decided to try and hit them out of trouble and hit Billy for a 6 and a couple of 4's, but Chowie took an excellent catch when he tried it again and he was out for 15. Their only batsman to reach double figures. From then on we took a wicket practically every over and they were all out for 47 in the 26th over.

A great win that took a while to sink in but we certainly enjoyed it.
