Hornchurch v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Cup XI on Sun 16 Jun 2013 at 1.00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won 174 runs

Match report Sawbridgeworth booked their place in the third round of the Conference Cup for the second year running after demolishing Hornchurch by 174 runs at Harrow Lodge Park.

After being put in on a damp wicket, they were given another magnificent start by Wilson and Rudkin, who put on over 100 for the first wicket for the second time this weekend. Having put on 115 against West Herts on Saturday, they piled up 112 in 22 overs before Wilson was adjudged leg before to home skipper Mark Whitlock.

Alexander Axon joined Rudkin and they continued the good work as they added 117 from just 18 overs. Such was their excellent rotation of the strike, the pair struck just six boundaries during this period. Axon brought up his fifty from 52 deliveries, just after Rudkin had reached his century at the start of the 39th over. It was the third time the 18-year-old had passed three figures for the 1st XI but his first in either a league or a cup game.

Rudkin's departure left saw the visitors at 229-2 before Clarke provided the icing on the cake with some brutal hitting as he struck 43 (17 balls) out of the 56 that were scored off the last five overs of the innings.

Hornchurch openers Murray and Michael Bones struck a combined total of 10 boundaries in their opening stand of 55 in 11.2 overs. They turned out to be the only two home batsmen to reach double figures as they capitulated to the spin of Waring and Jerome, who between them took 5-52 in their combined 18 overs.

The home side scored only four more boundaries in the remaining 23.2 overs of their innings and Burrell returned to bowl off-spin to take the last three wickets and seal a magnificent win for the visitors.
