Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI v Little Berkhamsted Sahibs on Sat 30 Jul 2016 at 1:00
Match was Drawn

Match report A gutsy performance from 10 man Sawbo against a strong LBS batting line up. A generous declaration after Sahibs reached 250 in 47 overs, meant we had plenty of overs to reach the target, but a threadbare batting unit meant we were always going to struggle once we lost three batters out of the 4. With 20 overs to go, the win was a possibility, but once Harnack edged behind, the long tail looked incapable of securing a win, so we pulled up the bridge and dug in for a well earned draw. With relatively little to play for other than pride, we showed real spirit and determination in a tetchy finish, as the Sahibs bowlers were frustrated by a strong rear-guard action and inaccurate bowling. Dongworth and Livermore were the pick of the bowlers, particularly Livermore who beat the bat on numerous occasions with little luck. Gostling J also made a welcome return to the attack. A relatively successful afternoon, thwarting Sahibs promotion aspirations, with everyone getting a game. The only blot being Bowler's injury, retiring hurt, meaning he may well miss he rest of the season, particularly frustrating bearing in mind his return to form.
