Potton Town v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 02 Jul 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 3 wickers

Match report After the mad match last week, this was much more normal although unfortunately at the end it didn't quite go our way. We started well with Bob and Brends putting on 71 for the first wicket in 21 overs, but we then became a bit becalmed as we struggled to keep the scoreboard ticking and get the strike to Bob who was batting really well.

It took us another 24 overs to score the next 70 runs and bby then we were 5 down. But the bowlers did well with the bat again, led by Bugsy we managed to get 50 in the last 8 overs. But we finished short of 200 as Chowie just failed to hit a 6 off the penultimate ball, getting caught on the boundary. Coming off I felt we had a good chance, but that we should of got 220 after the start we had.

We opened up with the old ball and Billy and Dave bowled well to restrict them, but it was the sort of pitch where batsmen had to get themselves out as there wasn't much in it for the bowlers. We kept steadily taking wickets, but they were always still in touch as the run rate never got much above 5 an over. We took the new ball but although Chowie picked up their number 4 who was looking dangerous, but we didn't have much luck with the chances we generated not going to hand.

We needed 3 tight overs and they needed one big one. We got 2 of them but then their skipper decided to have a go at gossie jr and took 14 off one over. Dave and Billy bowled the last few overs and nearly got it back for us, but with the short boundary at one end it was always going to be difficult. We took 3 more wickets, but they kept scoring the odd boundary to keep in front and needed just 1 off the last over, which they got with 3 balls remaining.

So disappointing to lose a game we probably shouldn't have, but we picked up 15 points.
