Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI v Old Albanian on Sat 24 Aug 2019 at 1.00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 164 runs

Match report Sawbridgeworth plunged back into the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League Division One relegation zone after suffering a major setback in their bid to avoid relegation for the third time in four seasons.
Saturday’s 164 run defeat to Old Albanian was chastening enough until news filtered through that fellow strugglers Kings Langley had pulled off a shock one wicket win over leaders Preston which moves them 17 points clear of Steve Ashman’s side.
They now need to win both of their last two matches to have a chance to staying up. However, if they lose to Hitchin on Saturday, they will go down if Kings Langley beat bottom side Knebworth Park and Harpenden take five bonus points from Langleybury.
Saad Naveed had given Sawbo early hope for optimism with two early wickets which reduced the visitors to 34-2 in the eighth over.
However, a superb third wicket partnership of 279 between skipper Usman Farooq and ‘keeper Rob Goldstone helped Old Albanian past 300 and they eventually closed on 324-6 from their 50 overs. Four wickets fell in their last five overs to Sean Black (2-49), Harry Gale (1-55) and a run out.
In reply, Sawbridgeworth were all out in 41.5 overs. Joe Holland top scored with 31 after Ashman and Owen Groves (30) had put on 47 for the first wicket. Rob Sanders (21) was the only other batsman to pass 20. .
In terms of runs (164), it was their fifth biggest defeat in the 601 league matches the first team have played since 1984, while they also conceded their highest total in all league games.
