Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI v Hatfield Hyde on Sat 28 Jun 2014 at 1.00
Match was Drawn

Match report A very disappointing result. With a few sore heads from the previous nights summer ball, we once again won the toss and put ourselves in the field.

The overs were reduced to 41/35 after some rain. The Hatfield Hyde top order made steady progress but never really looked like much of a threat of reaching an imposing total. We had them 99-6 and their aussie who came in at number 6 was at this point on 6, he then smashed 97* in their total of 213. He was also quite possibly the biggest tw*t i have played against on a cricket field, but in fairness to him to he batted very well. A dreadful lbw decision by the oppo umpire to not give their number 11 out when they were 169-9 and also deny rudders a hat trick really cost us. Matty Billings bowled excellently and returned well deserved figures of 5-40.

Nevertheless we knew that 213 was more then reachable off of our 35 overs. However our chase never really got going after our top 4 all got starts but none were able to go on. We found ourselves at 65-4 with chances fading of a win, Fozzy and Springer worked hard to put on 66 to get us to a pretty dull draw in the end.

14 points off the promotion places now and 2 big weeks ahead with away games against sides in the bottom half of the league which will go a long way to determining the rest of our season.

PS. Reynolds held a catch this week. If he held the one at Luton we would be third. Just saying.
