Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI v Northampton Exiles 2nd XI on Sat 04 Jun 2011 at 1:00
Match was Drawn

Match report On a hot and windy day at Leventhorpe, Sawbo won the toss and decided to have a bowl first.

Nick Dale opened the bowling and bowled like a dream, he bowled with pace and accuracy and was very unlucky not to get a couple of wickets most of the runs against him went over or just passed the slips.

I bowled from the other end but had to quickly remove myself as i was being despatched to all parts of the ground, i brought on Matt Gostling for his first bowl in the 3's and he didn't let anybody down with very good figures of 10 overs 0 for 39. James Wair also bowled well with 7 overs 0 for 30.

It was left at the end for the old farts to come back on and get some wickets once the good batsman had gone. Pasky ended with 6 overs 2 for 45 and i had 12 overs 5 for 54.

Northampton Exiles ended on a gettable 270 for 8.

We opened with Bren and Rich,opening the bowling for the Exiles was there skipper who was a very good left arm over bowler. Unfortunately Rich got run out early on for 4 and we lost Ross for 0 LBW to an in swinging ball. Bren and Bowles steadied the ship taking us to 128 before Bowles was bowled for a very good 51.Bren went bowled again by there skipper for a superb 82, this brought Alex and Gabes together and the two youngsters batted magnificently with both finishing on 41 each.

We ended on 227 for 6, and was always behind the run rate that we needed, they only really had two bowlers , the skipper bowled from one end for 24 overs and the other end was mainly held up by a guy who bowled 16. A drawn match and we move on next week to Town Fields !!!!!.
