Redbourne v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 24 Jun 2012 at 2.00
Match was Drawn 150 all out

Match report Interesting weather at Redbourn this week, Fanny won the toss again and stuck to the safe option of bowling first. Dave steamed in down the hill and picked up 3 with Bun spinning the ball a mile to claim 4 to start with; at 76 for 7 the skipper was pretty happy. Redbourn’s skipper and unorthodox number 9 batted well at the end and with the help of some drop catches (James, Shane & Charlie) they posted a useful 150. Bun eventually claimed an excellent 6 for 53.

Fanny biffed a few up front, Jim and Dinghy rebuilt and Dave smashed a somewhat interesting 46 getting out going for his 50 with the score on 148. Once Dave had fallen as the 7th wicket we needed only 3 to win, Dave suggested it was in the bag at this point to the groans of Fanny & Dinghy. Fud missed a long hop, Helmet top edged a pull and Baloo chipped one back to mid-on meaning we lost 3 wickets for only 2 runs and drew the game tied at 150.
To say the skipper was unhappy would be an understatement but it was a good game.

W Award = Charlie ‘Fud’ Knighton (dropping a dolly, getting 0)
