Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI v West Herts on Sat 15 Jun 2013 at 11:30
Match was Abandoned

Match report Danny Wilson's love affair with West Herts continued as the former captain lit up Town Fields with an another superb century.

The former captain notched up his 12th career league century, and his fourth against this opposition. This followed his 103 in August 2005 and scores of 100 and 114* in the side's two meetings of 2011.

He reached century in the final over before lunch after featuring in an opening stand of 115 in 21.5 overs with Rudkin. The pair dominated the visitors' attack as they brought up the fifty in the 10th over after Michael Burrell had elected to bat after his opposite number Craig Sanders had called incorrectly at the toss.

Wilson made Ian Gurney pay for dropping him at mid wicket on 52 as he reached three figures in the league for the second time this season. The home side had a slight wobble when Hodges dismissed Clarke and Jerome in successive overs to leave Sawbo 141-3 but Rob Sanders provided good support as he help add 43 in last 11 overs before the break.

Wilson became the second Sawbo player to score a century before lunch in the Home Counties Premier League, the first since Daniel Hull achieved the feat against Hoddesdon in 2006.

West Herts bowled 40 overs in the 123 minutes' play in the morning session but a 10 minute delay after lunch saw three overs deducted from the match. Sadly only 24 balls were bowled as Wilson and Sanders took their partnership to 64 before heavy rain turned Town Fields into a lake and the game was subsequently abandoned at 3.30pm.

This meant Ryan Cunningham did not get the opportunity to bowl on what his 100th league appearance for Sawbridgeworth, the 11th player to achieve this milestone since 1984.

Both teams took 6 points each
