Bushey v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 19 May 2012 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 2 wickets

Match report A great win, which pushes us up to third, but it was a typical Sawbo run chase designed to raise the skippers blood pressure.

They won the toss and reluctantly chose to bat, which at 16 for 3 looked a very bad decision as Nick and I got a bit of movement of the seam to have them all caught behind the wicket. But after that they batted well, putting on 60 for the next wicket and 30 for the next so that they were 106 for 5 after 32 overs which was a good position considering the very slow wicket and outfield. But then the Billings/Burrell squeeze came on as with pace off it was very hard to score. The next 16 overs went for 15 runs and 5 wickets went down as we bowled them out for 121 and grabbed 5 overs. Billy took the spoils with a great 5 for, but Dave helped pile the pressure on with figure of 1 for 8 off 8.

In reply Brends and Brends and Bob got us off to a good start, going along at 3 an over by just hitting the short ball when it came. But when they both got out bowled, we got a bit bogged down as they also took the pace off. But Birchy came in and was positive, hitting a few boundaries which got us going again. But a good catch got him so we were 5 down with 35 still needed. But the middle order did their job, with everybody contributing and at 120 for 6 we were there with Dave and Chuckle still at the crease. But then Dave was bowled and then Gossa got a 2nd baller so we were suddenly 8 down with 2 still needed. Nick was then dropped first ball, but it was then the end of the over and Chuckle held his nerve to hit one over the slips for 2 to secure the win.
