Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI Sunday v Hockerill on Sun 05 Jun 2011 at 2:00
Match was Abandoned

Match report Persistent rain saved Sawbridgeworth from a probable defeat in their local derby with Hockerill.

The visitors required just 56 runs from the last 17 overs with seven wickets in hand when the weather curtailed proceedings at 6.43pm, with the abandonment coming nine minutes later.

Craig Noonan was unbeaten for the visitors on 120, having faced just 90 balls and struck 20 fours and two sixes. After being dropped on 21, he shared an opening stand of 126 in 23 overs with Graham Sanders.

Earlier, Sawbridgeworth's top order had produced some highly
entertaining batting as they raced to 197-3 after just 25 overs, scoring at nearly eight an over.

Ellis (65 off 53 balls, 12 fours) and Freeman (61 off 46) added 125 for the second wicket off just 90 deliveries, with the latter striking six fours and three huge sixes.

Both players fell in quick succession before Bruton and Mann (37 off 27 balls) added 63 in under nine overs to take Sawbo past 200. The home side would have set their sights on a total of 280+ at this stage but lost their last seven wickets for 36 runs in just 50 balls.

Joe Rickett and Matthew Billings made their 1st XI debuts in this match.
