Hertford under 19s v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 17 Jul 2016 at 2.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 24 runs

Match report Arrived at hertford with the sun shining(the floridians certainly brought the weather back with them) to play Hertford under 19s.
Tricky lost the toss again and whilst the supporters basked in the glorious sunshine we took to the field with only 9 1/2 as Raghu had trouble with the trains and Bal was struggling with his back.
Tricky(0-34)and Matty(1-31) opened and success arrived in the first over from Matt having the opener caught smartly at gulley by fud.
Thereafter our bowlers toiled in the sun as our first 10 overs went for 100. Fud( 0-35)and jenks(3-38) bowled well and economically to check the rate and pick up wickets(one to a rapid LEGSIDE stumping from Vinny). Raghu arrived to give us 11 and gordon jenks replaced bal.
When the spin twins came on we hoped to keep the score to around 220. Unfortunately the hertford no.3 took a liking to Bun(2-72) and despite Dingy (0-33) keeping it tight at the other end they pushed the score up to 249 -6 after 30 overs .
jenks and tricky opened up and put on 50 in 5 overs before tricks (9) was adjuged l.b.w. Raghu went in at 3 and with jenks batting beautifully took the score to over 100 keeping up with the required rate.
jenks reached an untroubled 87 before his only false shot nicked to the keeper but with wickets in hand felt we could reach the Hertford total. The fielders were getting worried as an erratic throw caught matty on side of head .
Unfortunately wickets fell at regular intervals with Raghu(32), Matty(7), mini man(18),Dingy(15),james Adams(10),fud(5) all falling as they tried to keep up with the run rate. Last over came and 25 needed Bun joined Vinny but there was to be no Carlos Braithwaite as Bun was caught which left Gordon Jenks to face last 3 balls in which he managed a single. Vinny finshed the other end with 22n.o.
A good effort to get within 24 runs as we finished 225-9 against a much younger and fitter side.
w award went to Raghu for being late with 7 votes.
despite losing an enjoyable evening drinking as the sun went down which is what it's all about
Roll on next week
