Hertford v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 16 May 2015 at 11.30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won 5 wickets

Match report It was another record-breaking day for Sawbridgeworth as they produced their highest ever league run chase to defeat Hertford at Balls Park.

The visitors' previous best successful run chase had been 258-3 v Hoddesdon in June 2004, but they smashed that record with another impressive batting display
which meant they had won their first two league games for the first time since 1987.

Rudkin and Brown's opening stand of 87 at virtually a run a ball provided the perfect platform for Sawbo, before skipper Wilson held the rest of the innings together with another masterful knock.

Sawbo needed 66 off 48 balls five wickets left before the game took a decisive twist as the 43rd over, bowled by Adam Carlson, went for 30 runs as Burrell hit three sixes and four along with eight wides that were sent down. They needed only a further 25 balls to seal the win as the skipper finished unbeaten on 91, his last 30 runs coming off 12 deliveries.

Earlier, Gus Joyce and Chris Cook had scored half-centuries for Hertford, who should probably have scored 300 after being 216-4 at the 40 over mark. They scored just 64 from their last 10, which included 17 off the final over that saw Neil Salter hit two huge sixes off Harry Jerome, who had picked up three late wickets.

Dharmarajsinh Jhala bowled impressively on his league debut for Sawbridgeworth, conceding just 44 runs from 10 wicketless overs before scoring a useful 26 off 24 balls following his move from Winchmore Hill.
