Saracens Cricket Club


Knebworth Park v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 19 Aug 2012 at 2.00
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 101 Runs

Match report Hottest day of the year to play at the road that is Knebworth. Saracens had debuts for Luke ‘Curby’ Bracken and Kym ‘Fit Aussie’ Moore, with a welcome back for Allen ‘Mavis’ Nicholson as a last minute addition.

Due to having beaten Knebworth soundly for the last few years they decided to put a strong team out, Fanny again negotiated the toss and even instructed the opposition skipper in how to play a time game, good start with Knebworth batting.

Fanny removed the openers, Dinghy accounted for the middle order and at 118 for 6 it looked like we might have a sniff. Saracens fielding was in full flow with a host of dropped catches and some nearly reached ones, giving probably around 50 runs. We then realised they had reversed the batting order! Batters 7 & 8 put on a 100 partnership in 14 overs and despite Bun picking 3 wickets towards the end they posted a fairly large 253 for 9.

The chase started as normal, Tricky got out for a duck and Fanny smashed a few boundaries before a lazy shot accounted for him. After that the old guard of Squibby and Dinghy were the only ones to offer any resistance, both falling short of good 50’s. We posted 152 all out.

W Award = Richard ‘Tricky’ Young (Bowled badly, duck, took a catch with his eyes closed)
