Great Gaddesden CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 06 Aug 2017 at 2.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 4 runs

Match report A beautiful ground in the middle of nowhere and a decent team. Tricky lost the toss, surprise surprise and we are fielding. One of the gaddesden openers was in a hurry, smashing cabbie and Marcus to all parts, he soon has a 50 out of 58. Tricky comes on and removes the other opener, but the pinch hitter continues. On comes Bun and picks up a wicket and another for tricky. The opener getting frustrated gets well caught and bowled by Tricks. Game on. However a quality innings form number 6 with good support from the tail sees great gaddesden to a very strong total despite two late wickets brilliantly caught by Marcus off Dinghy.
Need to get nearly 7 an over. Jonny opens with Dinghy and a good start. 35 on the board off 4 overs then Ding is LBW. In comes Hitch and the two young guns set about e bowling. At the 20 over mark we are all ahead of the game. Then disaster. Jonny is run out on 92. New boy joss comes in and whacks a few and Hitch reaches yet another great 50. All looking good. Then the starriest falter. Hitch out LBW joss out for 20 and tricky triggered for just 1. We need 80 off 10 overs with the Hedges dad and son, at the crease. Over by over we fall behind the rate and need 21 off the last 2 overs. Some interesting running between the wickets leads to a few missed runs and down to 13 off the last. A valiant effort needing 4 off He last ball to tie, but can't be done. A close run game and a feast for the spectators.
W award, Darryl and Owen for some comical running between the wickets. Catch of the day - Marcus, shot of the day- Jonny and champagne moment - Marcus for some entertaining umpiring!
