Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI v North Mymms 2nd XI on Sat 23 Jun 2012 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost by 7 wickets

Match report A decent game against a very good team, but unfortunately we came up just a bit short. They won the toss and elected to bowl, which told us they were going to be pushing hard for the win. We had a solid start by Simon and Brends against easily the best opening attack we have faced. They put on 40 before Brends was caught at gully. THis brought Dav to the crease, who although jetlagged batted beautifully once he got used to the pace of the pitch.

We continued steadily, but lost the odd wicket. At 136 for 4 with 10 overs to go we were well placed to set a challenging totoal of around 185 to 200. But the introduction of their leg-spinner changed that as he picker up 4 wickets for 13. Our last 6 wickets fell for 29 runs in 8 overs, leaving us at least 20 short of a competitive total.

In reply they started solidly, we bowled well and fielded brilliantly at times, but we just weren't able to make the breakthrough. They put on 90 odd for the first wicket before Fossie got our first wicket, despite tight bowling from Fossie and Billy they continued to steadily edge toward the total. We picked up a couple more before the end, in large part thanks to Ellis' conversations with their batsmen, but they got there with 5 overs to spare.

So disappointing to lose, but there were some positives as we performed well against a very good team who had a lot of former and current Mymm's 1's players in it. We just came up a bit short on the runs front which meant we were unable to really create any pressure.
