Saracens Cricket Club


Broxbourne v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 18 May 2014 at 2.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 101 runs

Match report a lovely sunny day as we travelled to Broxbourne. having lost two of the original selection in Pete King on the Friday and Anthony Bunyan on the Saturday (early nomination for w award) we drafted in Chris baker for his first game and hop along Ben Wallis as replacements.
Vinnie lost the toss and we were in the field although only 10 made the opening over as Randy forgot his boots and was too long getting changed(nominee number 2)
Broxbourne openers scored quickly although could have both gone too woody if vinnie clung on too a couple of difficult chances (nominee number 3). Both bowled well but on a belter of a batting track something special was needed which came when the opener smashed the ball high and flat to the long off boundary where Randy took a miraculous champagne moment catch above his head yards from the boundary rope. Woody picked up a deserved wicket to account for the other opener(good catch by hop along) before the spin twins (bun and dingy)were brought on after 20 overs. Runs were easy to come by despite there efforts but they toiled away picking up deserved wickets courtesy of good catches by vinnie and charlie. At 40 overs Broxbourne had reached 236

Opening the batting was Jim Waff and woody and they edged the score to 14 before Jim departed for 3 and it was a steady fall of wickets thereafter with woody batting superbly for 66, vinnie (10) and extras (32) the only others making double figures. Other points to note in our innings were Dingy running out his brother in law Ian (he managed to get half way down the track) and Chris baker scoring his first run for Saracens. We were all out inside 35 overs for 135 and a loss by 101 runs.
Shame not too get closer but no complaints in being beaten by a far superior and stronger team.
3 nominees for w award and with 5 votes randy was voted ( no memorable speech this time)
signing off. see you next week
