Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI Sunday v Buckhurst Hill on Sun 24 Apr 2011 at 1:30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 7 wickets

Match report Danny Wilson continued his good form with the bat but was unable to prevent Sawbridgeworth suffering a third successive pre-season defeat at Town Fields on Sunday.

The former skipper was stranded three short of a century as he dominated his side's innings, hitting nine fours and two sixes in his 130 ball knock.

Rhys Purnell (28 balls) was the only other player to reach 20 and it needed a quickfire 14* off 11 deliveries by Howard to get Sawbo just short of 200, with 43 coming off the final five overs.

Sawbridgeworth needed an early breakthrough to have any chance of recording their first win of the season but after Miller bowled very well without luck, Whorlow (101 balls, 10 fours and a six) and Allen (91 balls, eight fours & a five) quickly began to dominate as they put on 155 for the first wicket in 30 overs.

Although the home side took three wickets in quick succession, this was only a minor blip for Buckhurst Hill, who completed a comprehensive win with a massive 50 balls to spare.
