Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI v Hockerill on Sat 03 Aug 2019 at 1.30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost by 5 wickets

Match report On the face of it this was a convincing loss, but we actually lost the game in a period of about 9 overs in their innings when the skipper came in a teed off from ball one.

We started the day looking at a very difficult pitch and thinking between 160 and 170 was par. We started well but got a bit bogged down against some very accurate bowling, with their opener finishing with 1 for 10 off 9. But we kept wickets in hand and started to accelerate due to a good partnership between Bowls and Bruton of 75 runs and ended on a slightly below par 157. But we knew if we bowled a good length we were in with a shout.

We started well with Luke and Kev bowling in good areas and Kev picking up a wicket in the 6th over with the score on about 20. But then the fireworks began as their skipper started by pulling Luke for a 4 and a 6 the next over, he then went on to smash anything full or short bringing up his 50 in the 5th over he was in and going on to score 73 before he got out to a good ball by DJ. But by then the damage was done and they only needed another 35 with 26 overs still to go. We did pick up another 3 wickets, with their opener unbelievably running himself going for a suicidal 2nd and then DJ picking up another 1 and Luke hitting the top of off to get rid of their no 6. With 10 still needed their lower order were suddenly running around getting pads on, but a couple of 4's released any pressure and saw them home with nearly 20 overs to spare.
