Hatfield Hyde 2nd XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 14 Jun 2014 at 1.00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 7 wkts

Match report A dry week followed by morning drizzle meant that we were keen to bowl on a relatively good surface that had a 'zip' in it compounded by a ridge at both ends on a length. Was surprised then that the HH II skipper decided to bat especially bearing in mind their tally of recent low scores. Timms (3 wickets)& Clayden (2) made the early breakthrough removing the HH openers, with the accomplished Billings who was deputising for Burson as WK, taking three catches off their bowling. Tom Harnack bowled with good control taking 2 wickets, with Bovaird , Gale and Billings all chipping in with one wicket apiece. A youthful bowling unit combined to restrict HH to 131 of 45.1 overs, despite the big hitting of the late arriving HH no 11 batsman who stubbornly resisted with a useful 25 not out. The big difference this week was that we didn't drop any catches, and the bowlers bowled accurately on a relatively fast and bouncy wicket.
In reply, the reliable Heath and Levey got off to a positive start before both were removed LBW. Rickett waited for the bad ball, batting with patience and hitting the ball cleanly along the ground piercing the opposition fielding. Bowler joined him at the crease very much playing second fiddle to Rickett's repertoire of positive stroke play. Both rode their luck after a couple of very straightforward drops, with a 17 over partnership as they steadily accumulated runs. Once Bowler was caught it was left to Harnack R. and Rickett to finish things off with a 30 run partnership with plenty of overs to spare.
A very good team performance with everyone contributing to a successful 30 point haul.
