Saracens Cricket Club


Hertford 2nd XI v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 15 May 2016 at 1.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 29 runs

Match report Saracens lost the toss and Hertford batted first. Jonny Harris bowled a great first spell of heat, and beat the bat constantly in his first and second spell. In between those Hertford used the pace and hit boundaries on a pitch that gave good value for shots. At the other end Tommy Patrick bowled much more consistently this week than 2 weeks ago, showing that playing cricket more than twice every couple of years helps. They were both unlucky to not get wickets, but Hertford raced to a good score. Bun and Randy took up the ball, bowled very well and we started to edge back into the game. We were uncharacteristic in the field and we shelled a number of catches that we normally take. None of them really cost a lot, but stopped us building any real momentum in the innings. Raghu Ramdas bowled well on debut. Paul Heasman (also debut) kept for the 2nd half of the game and did quite well. Bun ended with 4 wickets, and Hertford declared on 222, giving us a good look at a potential win.

Saracens did very well in the beginning, again on a field giving value for runs. Woody and Flipper put on 82 for the 2nd wicket, and at 2 for 92, not far behind the run rate, Saracens would have looked a great bet. That is why, however, they call it gambling and after giving away his wicket at 95 (which pains me to write) noone else really got going and we were bowled out for 193.

Was a lovely day at Hertford, great wicket and good day out there as always. The beer was flowing with an extra large jug, but we had a late finish and never really got going there either.
